Former Eagles Center Jamal Jackson To Retire

Earlier reports that former Philadelphia Eagles center Jamal Jackson has announced his retirement were confirmed by New York Giants head coach Tom Coughlin. Jackson was given a tryout with the Giants after his nine-year run with the Eagles came to an end after the 2011 season.

Jackson was a staple in the Eagles offensive line the past decade, playing in 88 games, including 72 starts between 2003 and 2011. He was named a Sports Illustrated All-Pro in 2006. While trying out with the Giants, Jackson had a change of heart Saturday morning, saying his heart was not in it any longer.

We at SB Nation Philly certainly wish the best for Jackson in his retirement.
