Jackson, 32, began his career in Philadelphia after being selected 49th overall by the Eagles in the second round of the 2008 NFL Draft. All of Jackson’s best seasons came as a member of the Eagles, reaching the Pro Bowl three times (2009, 2010, and 2013). At the time of his departure, Jackson left the Eagles with the franchise’s 4th most receiving yards (6,117), 8th most receptions (356), 9th most receiving touchdowns (32), and tied for the 3rd most 100+ receiving-yard games (20).
He spent a trio of seasons in Washington after signing a three-year, $24 million contract with the Redskins in 2014. After his time in D.C., he joined the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in 2017 on another three-year contract worth $33.5 million.
