The team announced his new contract on Monday afternoon, and his agent revealed that it would be worth up to $10 million, with $5.5 million guaranteed, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport.
Philadelphia drafted Jackson in the second round in 2008. The stunning release came the same day as a report by NJ.com detailing Jackson's ties to gang members in Los Angeles.
Six Nations: Ireland beat France to set up title showdown with Wales
Maro Itoje has conceded defeat in his battle to be fit for the climax to England's Six Nations against Scotland on Saturday. While the second half petered out somewhat, a Keith Earls try was enough to give Ireland the bonus point victory.
Jackson got off to a hot start in which he had 17 catches for 424 yards and three touchdowns in the first four games, all started by backup quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick. He was unceremoniously cut by coach Chip Kelly in March 2014 following a career year in which Jackson posted 1,332 receiving yards and nine touchdowns. He also had four punt returns for scores during his time in Philadelphia.
Now that Jackson is officially part of the mix, all eyes will be on the 29-year-old defender to see how much of an impact he can make on defense to put the Eagles in the best position possible to compete.
The Philadelphia Eagles are key players in free agency.
Although Jackson didn't play as well in 2018 as he did in the previous three seasons, he's still a solid presence in the middle of the defensive line and a good addition to the Eagles.
