The Eagles officially released Jamaal Jackson today, ending his 9 year stint with the team. Jackson started 77 games in Philly and until today, was the team's longest tenured player. He's also the last connection (player wise) to the 2004 Super Bowl team. He was technically not on the 53 man roster that season, but he was a part of the organization.
All in all, it was a great run for an undrafted free agent out of Delaware State. He really doesn't fit the mold of what Howard Mudd wants in his centers, but I suspect he's still got some left in the tank and I think we'd all love to see him starting elsewhere... as long as its not in the NFC East.
I want to thank the fans for their everlasting support of me and my family during my tenure here. I wish you all & the eagles the very best!— Jamaal Jackson (@CenterStage67) March 14, 2012
Definitely check out the tribute to Jackson that PhiladelphiaEagles wrote back in January. If you're on twitter, be sure to wish him well @CenterStage67. Great guy and a great servant/ambassador/representative of the club.
