Tarvaris Jackson — who famously backed up Russell Wilson in Super Bowl XLVIII — has died in a car crash.

He was only 36.

We’re told Jackson was involved in a wreck late Sunday night in Alabama, where he grew up.

Russell Wilson tweeted about his former teammate early Monday morning — saying, “TJack… you will be missed. Praying for your family…Love you man.”

Recently, he had been working as a quarterback coach for the Tennessee State football team.

Jackson was a stud football player in high school — and later played at Arkansas before transferring to Alabama State, where he balled out for 3 seasons.

The Minnesota Vikings selected Jackson in the 2nd round of the 2006 NFL Draft, with head coach Brad Childress calling the QB a “diamond in the rough.”
