Former NFL QB Tarvaris Jackson dies in car accident


Former NFL quarterback Tarvaris Jackson died Sunday evening after being involved in a car accident in Alabama.

He was 36 years old.

A Tennessee state spokesperson confirmed Jackson’s death to ESPN.

Jackson spent 10 seasons in the NFL with the Minnesota Vikings, Buffalo Bills and Seattle Seahawks. The Vikings’ second-round pick in 2006, he led the team to an 8-4 record as a starter in the 2007 season. He started a playoff game for the Vikings in 2008, losing 24 -16 against the Philadelphia Eagles in the Wild-Card round.

A native of Montgomery, Alberta, Jackson joined the Seahawks as a backup quarterback in 2011 and won a Super Bowl title with the team in 2013.

Jackson officially retired in 2018, three years after his last appearance in a game with the Seahawks, and became a coach.

In 2019, he joined the State of Tennessee as quarterback coach and attacking analyst.
