In our effort to update the free agent quarterback files because of the general interest on how it relates to the Bengals quarterback position, we'll be providing updates on free agent quarterbacks.

Quarterback Tarvaris Jackson isn't expected to return with the Minnesota Vikings, according to virtually every source and Vikings fan you talk to. Adding to the mountain of evidence that supports this, the Vikings first round selection, quarterback Christian Ponder, is taking Jackson's old number seven.

ESPN's Trent Dilfer believes the Seattle Seahawks could be a player for the quarterback.

"(Darrell) Bevell, now in Seattle, always had an affinity for Tarvaris Jackson. And believe it or not, I think that might be the play here for the Seattle Seahawks -- I think it might be trying to get Tarvaris Jackson from Minnesota," Dilfer said. "They've always liked him, they liked his starter potential. (Bevell) tried to make it happen for him in Minnesota and that might be the direction they're trying to go."

The Bengals could seem like a possible destination. Before he was fired during the 2010 season, head coach Brad Childress employed a version of the West Coast offense that the Bengals will be using in 2011 with Jay Gruden. That's where we believe the possibility ends.
