Tarvaris Jackson: I have no idea why I was in Buffalo


After the Buffalo Bills traded for Tarvaris Jackson prior to the 2012 season, the veteran quarterback spent all 16 games on their inactive list.

He's not getting much action these days, either. But he's apparently much happier.

"I never wanted to leave Seattle in the first place," Jackson said Tuesday, via The Buffalo News. "It's a good feeling being in a place where you're winning games. That Buffalo situation is over with."

The Bills brought Jackson back again last offseason to be part of what turned out to be a big and seemingly ever-changing quarterback corps. Buffalo, however, cut him prior to minicamp.

Now half a year later, he's taking part in the Super Bowl festivities with the team Buffalo acquired him from to begin with, backing up Russell Wilson. Rookie E.J. Manuel went on to become the Bills' starting signal-caller, backed up by a very serviceable Thad Lewis last season.

"I've erased last year from my mind. I don't remember anything from the Bills," Jackson said. ". . . I have no idea why I was even brought there."
