"I think [that] speaks for the heart and determination that I have to play this game regardless of off-the-field issues," Jackson said.

"The only thing I can really do is control what I'm able to do - just go out there and play football and make as many plays as possible," he said. "It's challenging at times, especially when you see a lot of things going out there on the market and stuff. I just try to stay patient and I know my time will be coming soon. The atmosphere, the relationship with the Eagles, I feel has been real, real good lately. I'll just keep doing what I need to do, work hard, keep my mouth sh . . . " Jackson stopped himself. He smiled. "Quiet," he said. "And just have fun."
