Bills Traded for Tarvaris Jackson, Thinks He Can Pick Up Offense Better Than Vince Young

Quarterback Vince Young was very inconsistent and slow in picking up the Buffalo Bills offense, that they had no problem paying Tarvaris Jackson a bit more money to be a capable backup while releasing Young.

Jackson is a strong-armed quarterback who is accustomed to playing in a quick passing system. Young was unable to be consistent with the thought process of the offense.

Pro Football Talk is reporting that Jackson will make $1.95 million this season, with the potential to make upwards of another $1 million based on incentives. Young, on the other hand, had a deal that would have paid him $1.25 million. Even with bonuses and incentives, Young only would have made a total of $1.65 million.

The fact that Jackson himself has been madly inconsistent in his three stops since being drafted in 2006 and still was seen as an upgrade tells you all you need to know about Young at this point in time.
