The 6-foot-7, 255-pound Jackson is a former star quarterback in college turned Eagles prospect after signing a reserve/futures contract as a tight end.

Yes, Jackson is another undrafted project for Howie Roseman, but the guy who went on to become the Mid-American Conference Offensive Player of the Year at the University of Buffalo in 2018, is an athletic marvel who could offer a star talent and a low price.

Jackson signed with the Buffalo Bills as a rookie free-agent quarterback and he played for the Bills during the 2019 preseason before he was released. He then played QB for the XFL’s DC Defenders.

Now a tight end in Philadelphia, Jackson is hopeful that his experience at QB can help translate to the tight end position.
