Jaguars agree to terms with defensive tackle Jackson

The Jacksonville Jaguars have agree to terms with free agent defensive tackle Grady Jackson, pending a team physical.

The deal is expected to become official on Wednesday, according to the Jaguars.

Jackson, an 11-year veteran, was released by the Atlanta Falcons on Oct. 23. He had started all seven games this season and 22 of 23 games since joining the Falcons as an unrestricted free agent before the 2006 season.

In 146 career games with the Falcons, Packers, Saints and Raiders, Jackson has posted 440 career tackles, 33.5 sacks and eight forced fumbles. The former sixth round pick of Oakland in the 1997 NFL Draft led all NFL players with 13 tackles for loss in 2006.
