Tarvaris Jackson Takes Pay Cut

ESPN Insider John Clayton tweets that Tarvaris Jackson has taken a pay cut with the Buffalo Bills from $4 million to $1.75 million, in an attempt to stay with the team.

Jackson, who was traded from the Seahawks to the Bills, took the cut in order to expedite the trade process, as well as to avoid being cut in favor of Tyler Thigpen.

The $2.75 million can be earned back with incentives. However, it is unlikely that Jackson will earn the money, as he backs up Ryan Fitzpatrick.
