Projects as backup
Latest Headline: Published 2023-05-01
Jackson will likely serve as a backup in 2023 after the Seahawks selected Devon Witherspoon in the first round of this year's draft, Bob Condotta of The Seattle Times reports.
Head coach Pete Carroll mentioned that Jackson and Witherspoon will compete for the job at left cornerback while second-year corner Tariq Woolen starts on the right side and Coby Bryant in the slot. Carroll embraces competition, but when a team picks a corner fifth overall, he's going to start sooner than later. Jackson posted 75 tackles (63 solo) last season as a starter, so he'll be a useful IDP option if he does crack the starting lineup.

Re-signs with Seattle
Latest Headline: Published 2023-04-17
Seattle re-signed Jackson, who was an exclusive rights free agent, Monday, Bob Condotta of The Seattle Times reports.
Jackson posted 74 tackles, 12 pass defenses, two fumble recoveries and one interception across 17 appearances in 2022, his first campaign as a full-time starter. The 2019 five-round pick currently projects to be the top cornerback opposite Tariq Woolen in Seattle's secondary, but the Seahawks could add more cornerback depth in the 2023 NFL Draft.
Productive in first year as starter
Latest Headline: Published 2023-01-20
Jackson posted 75 tackles (63 solo), 12 pass breakups, two fumble recoveries and an interception over 17 regular-season games in 2022.
Jackson played just 28 defensive snaps through his first three NFL seasons, but he started all 17 games in 2022 and played nearly every snap. The 2019 fifth-round pick was quite productive for fantasy purposes. However, he'll be a free agent in March, and he'll likely need to battle for a starting job in 2023 whether in Seattle or not.
