The 36-year-old TSU QB coach was a former second-round pick of the Vikings in 2006, spending 5 seasons there before becoming a starter for the Seahawks in 2011. He had his best season in Seattle, that year, throwing for 3,091 yards and 14 TDs.
Jackson earned a Super Bowl ring as Russell Wilson’s backup from 2013-2015.
