Philadelphia Eagles

After being undrafted in the 2003 NFL Draft, Jackson was signed by the Philadelphia Eagles as a free agent.

In the 2005 season he earned the starting job at center after Hank Fraley went down with an injury. He started all eight remaining games that season. He signed a seven-year extension with the Eagles on July 20, 2006. Jackson and Fraley appeared on the cover of the August 14, 2006 issue of Sports Illustrated, as they were in a battle for the starting center job--a rare feat for an offensive lineman. Jackson eventually beat out Fraley for the job when Fraley was traded to the Cleveland Browns.

Jackson has started every game for the Eagles since winning the starting job from Fraley in 2006.

Jackson suffered a knee injury during a week 16 game in 2009 against the Denver Broncos, which prevented him from playing in most of the game. Nick Cole played for him at center.[1] The knee injury turned out to be a torn anterior cruciate ligament (ACL), which will keep Jackson from playing the rest of the year.[2] He was placed on injured reserve on December 29.[3]
