Jackson, 32, signed a three-year, $27 million contract with the Eagles in March.
He played the previous two years with the Buccaneers and the three before that with the Redskins, but Jackson’s best seasons came with the Eagles, who drafted him in 2008.
During his time with the Eagles, Jackson caught 356 passes for 6,117 yards and 32 touchdowns. He also had four return touchdowns, including a very famous one against the Giants in 2010.

Jackson is expected to be a contributor this season for the Eagles despite his age and an already talented wide receiver group.
