Brooks: Perfect fit for Philadelphia
The Philadelphia Inquirer reported Tuesday that Jackson implied he will take the majority of punt returns in the upcoming season.
After leading the NFL in total punt returns as a rookie, Jackson's average workload was cut by more than 50 percent on average the following three seasons. By 2012, Jackson essentially was off returns. (He had one.)
"Punt return is going to be a big factor," Jackson said Monday, via Philadelphia Magazine. "Kind of bring my niche back out there and help that punt-return team. Not only that, just go out there and make plays, get that electrifying unit back, to be able to go out there and score touchdowns at any given time."
