The Eagles announced the following roster move on Wednesday afternoon:
• Activated the 21-day practice window for TE Tyree Jackson
Tyree Jackson was placed on the team's Reserve/Physically Unable to Perform list on August 23rd during Training Camp. Now, Jackson can be placed on the active roster at any point, but the team would have to make a corresponding roster move in order to create a spot for him.
The Eagles acquired 6-foot-7, 249-pound Jackson as a free agent in 2021 following his stint in the XFL where he played quarterback for the DC Defenders.
He realized that if he wanted to achieve his NFL aspirations he would have to switch positions, so he committed to his goals and transitioned to tight end upon signing with the Eagles.
Last season, Jackson played 171 offensive snaps, catching three passes for 22 yards and a touchdown in the final game of the regular season against Dallas in January.
Jackson is a product of the University of Buffalo, where he threw for 6,999 yards and 49 touchdowns at quarterback. He sought out the help of Naaman Roosevelt, another former Buffalo player, who played wide receiver in the NFL and Canadian Football League, to coach his route-running technique.
