Free agent C Jamaal Jackson clarified Wednesday that he is definitely not retiring from football.

Jackson, now 32 and three years removed from his last meaningful action, told Giants coach Tom Coughlin that his heart wasn't in it at rookie minicamp earlier this month, but he now believes he has "plenty of good football left." The Titans failed to upgrade at center and had expressed interest in Jackson in March. Perhaps there's a match there later this summer.

Free agent C Jamaal Jackson has retired from football.

Jackson attended the Giants' rookie minicamp, but decided he no longer had desire to play. "He just said, 'Coach, I just don't feel like my heart's in it,'" coach Tom Coughlin said Saturday. An undrafted free agent in 2003, Jackson took over as the Eagles' center midway through the 2005 season and stayed there until tearing his biceps in Week 1 in 2010. He was released in March, and didn't make any visits before working out with the Giants.

The Titans have reportedly expressed interest in free agent C Jamaal Jackson.

Having lost out on Scott Wells and Chris Myers, the Titans could bring in Jackson if they also strike out on Jeff Saturday. The team obviously prefers a veteran at center as opposed to a second-day draft pick.

Eagles released C Jamaal Jackson.

The Eagles' longest-tenured player, Jackson lost his starting job to rookie Jason Kelce last season after a torn triceps limited him to just one game in 2010. He also suffered a torn ACL in December 2009. Two months shy of his 32nd birthday, it would have made little sense for the Eagles to pick up his $1.775 million salary. Entering a free agent market flush with centers, it could be a while before Jackson finds a new home.

The agent for C Jamaal Jackson expects the Eagles to release his client when the new league year begins in March.

"It would surprise me greatly if they did not release him," said agent J.R. Rickert, "but that's a team decision." Jackson, the longest tenured Eagle, is owed a $1.775 million salary. He's been usurped by 2011 draft pick Jason Kelce and hasn't been the same since tearing his ACL in 2009 and triceps in 2010.

The Philadelphia Inquirer suggests that C Jamaal Jackson could be a "trade chip" for the Eagles.

Jackson has lost his starting job to rookie Jason Kelce and the Eagles may not want to keep him around as a $1.575 million backup. Jackson getting released on Saturday also can't be ruled out.

Coach Andy Reid said Wednesday that Jamaal Jackson (knee, triceps) is his starting center.

While Reid seemed a little concerned over right tackle Winston Justice's knee injury, he was confident in Jackson. Reid may just be hoping here as Mike McGlynn struggled when asked to start last season. We'll know more once the Eagles get on the field for practice.

CSN Philadelphia believes C Jamaal Jackson is one of the most underrated Eagles' offensive linemen of all time.

Reporter Reuben Frank believes Jackson doesn't get his due because he was signed as an undrafted free agent. "He’s big and smart and powerful and athletic enough to handle the unusually high amount of 1-on-1 blocking the Eagles demand from their center," according to Frank. Underrated or not, Jackson is coming off two major injuries, and is a question mark heading into 2011.

The Philadelphia Inquirer's Sheil Kapadia expects Jamaal Jackson to still be the Eagles' starting center next season as long as he's healthy.

As he was last year, Mike McGlynn will be Jackson's fill-in. Jackson is coming off of two straight seasons in which he's suffered a major injury (a torn ACL in 2009 and a torn triceps in 2010), and the Eagles could be well served by finding some additional insurance on the open market once the transactions freeze is lifted.

Eagles GM Howie Roseman has declared C Jamaal Jackson (triceps) 100 percent healthy.

This is an upgrade from nine days ago, when Jackson himself said he was "98 percent" healthy. Jackson has suffered a serious injury in both of the past two games he's played in (he tore his ACL in Week 16 in 2009), but the Eagles are still counting on him for 2011. He could be pushed by Mike McGlynn in training camp, however.

Eagles C Jamaal Jackson claims to be "98 percent" recovered from last year's torn triceps injury.

"Basically," Jackson said, "if we had a game today, I'd be able to play." Recovering from major surgery for the second straight offseason, Jackson may have to battle Mike McGlynn for the starting job. McGlynn held his own as a fill-in last season.

Eagles C Jamaal Jackson (torn triceps) is back in the weight room and expects to be "full-go" in 2011.

Jackson injured his triceps just as he was recovering from last offseason's ACL surgery. It's the second time he's suffered the triceps injury. He won't have to rush to get ready for the regular season this time around.

Eagles C Jamaal Jackson underwent surgery Tuesday to repair a torn right triceps muscle.

Jackson's season is over, but he should be healthy enough to compete for his starting job in 2011. The Eagles are likely to bring in competition after two major surgeries in less than a year for Jackson.
Tue, Sep 14, 2010 05:03:00 PM

Eagles placed C Jamaal Jackson on injured reserve with a torn right triceps muscle, ending his season.

This makes back-to-back year-ending injuries for Jackson, coming just three games apart. He tore his ACL in Week 16 of 2009. Previous to the unlucky run, Jackson had started 71 straight contests while earning a reputation as one of the NFL's top all-around centers. His 2011 roster spot is safe with a $925K salary, but the Eagles may be forced to bring in competition.
