  • Bears' Eddie Jackson: Working to bounce back

    Jackson playing in a heavy-zone defense may help him re-emerge as a defensive leader on the Bears Gene Chamberlain of SI.com reports.

    After recording eight interceptions and scoring five touchdowns in his first two years in the league, Jackson has recorded just two interceptions and one touchdown in the last three seasons. The new defense is expected to let him fly around the field and try to make plays, opposed to being left regularly in coverage, which hasn't been his area of strength. Based on the past three years, Jackson may not be drafted in many IDP leagues, but if he gets off to a hot start to the season, he may quickly become a priority add.

  • Bears' Eddie Jackson: Moderate outing in finale

    Jackson posted five tackles in the Bears' 31-17 Week 18 loss to the Vikings, and he ended the season with 76 stops.

    On a per-game basis, Jackson posted the most tackles of his five-year career, but for the second year in a row, he failed to post an interception or a sack. Unless he can make a drastic return to his playmaking days of his first two seasons in the league, he'll merely be a solid-floor IDP. He's signed with the Bears through the 2024 season, and he'll be expected to remain the starter at free safety.

  • Bears' Eddie Jackson: Solid performance

    Jackson recorded eight tackles in the Bears' 29-3 win over the Giants on Sunday.

    Although Jackson has had an up-and-down season, he's averaged eight tackles over the last three games, and he'll be worth considering as an IDP option in Week 18 against the Vikings.

  • Bears' Eddie Jackson: Added to COVID-19 list

    Jackson (undisclosed) was placed on the reserve/COVID-19 list Thursday.

    Jackson was among six Chicago players to be placed on the reserve/COVID-19 list Thursday. Regardless of whether he tested positive or was just a close contact, Jackson will have the potential to suit up for Monday's game against Minnesota. His potential activation would provide a big boost to the Bears' defense, as Jackson has been on the field for 100 percent of defensive snaps in all but one contest this season.
