Seahawks Make Roster Moves

Posted: Updated:

SEATTLE, WA -- Terrell Owens says he is "no longer" a member of the Seattle Seahawks.

The 38-year-old wide receiver posted the news on his Twitter account.

"I'm no longer a Seahawk. I THANK the organization 4 the opportunity, I'm truly blessed beyond belief. My FAITH is intact & will NOT waiver."

Owens signed a one-year deal with Seattle earlier this month, just days before the first preseason game.

He played the second and third preseason games for Seattle, but caught only one pass.

Owens did not play in the NFL last season. He has started 201 of the 219 regular-season NFL games he has played. He has 1,078 receptions for 15,934 yards and 153 touchdowns - the second most in league history.

Meanwhile, a person familiar with discussions has told The Associated Press that the Buffalo Bills have tentatively agreed to acquire quarterback Tarvaris Jackson in a trade with the Seattle Seahawks.

"It's close," the person said Sunday, speaking on the condition of anonymity because neither team has announced the trade. The Bills are in talks with Jackson's agent to restructure the final year of the player's contract. He's scheduled to make $4 million this season.

Jackson's future was in question with the Seahawks, after the team acquired Matt Flynn in free agency this offseason, and after using a third-round pick to draft Russell Wilson in April.

The Bills' interest in Jackson potentially spells trouble for Vince Young in his bid to win the backup job in Buffalo.
