“Got it my way 15 years strong!! Neva anotha love it! #0ne0fone”
Two days later, Jackson took to social media in an attempt to clear the air.
“They reached my last post not a retirement post! I just need to get a few things off my chest! You all will know when Boi retires!” he wrote on Instagram.
Jackson, who is an unrestricted free agent, had nine catches for 153 yards in seven games (one start) last season with the Baltimore Ravens.
He had 641 receptions for 11,263 yards and 58 touchdowns in 183 games (159 starts) with the Philadelphia Eagles (2008-13, 2019-20), Washington franchise (2014-16), Tampa Bay Buccaneers (2017-18), Los Angeles Rams (2021), Las Vegas Raiders (2021) and Ravens (2022).
A second round pick by the Eagles in 2008, Jackson led the NFL in yards per receiving in 2010, 2014, 2016 and 2018.
