Jackson was drafted in the first round of the 2010 draft by the Texans with the 20th overall pick. While he struggled early on in his career, Jackson has become a solid starting cornerback for a consistent Texans defense.
“I’d love to be back here. What coach (Bill) O’Brien has brought here with the coaches and stuff like that, with the system and stuff like that, I definitely want to be a part of what’s starting to happen last year and progressing into our future,” the Texans cornerback said to ESPN.
Jackson was considered to be the best defensive player on the Texans in 2014 aside from Defensive Player of the Year J.J. Watt.
The former Alabama cornerback has come up with 10 interceptions in his five-year career and has many years ahead of him since he is only 26. Due to his youth, the Texans will likely make it a high priority to re-sign Jackson.
