Biography

Eddie Jackson is an American football free safety for the Chicago Bears of the National Football League (NFL). He played college football at Alabama.

Professional career

Coming out of Alabama, Jackson was projected by the majority of NFL draft experts and scouts to be a third round pick. He received an invitation to the NFL Combine, but was unable to perform any physical drills during the entire pre-draft process due to the broken leg he suffered in October. He was ranked the fifth best strong safety prospect in the draft by NFLDraftScout.com.

2017

The Chicago Bears selected Jackson in the fourth round with the 112th overall pick in the 2017 NFL Draft. Jackson was the 13th safety drafted in 2017.

On May 15, 2017, the Chicago Bears signed Jackson to a four-year, $3.06 million contract that includes a signing bonus of $665,797.

Throughout training camp, Jackson competed against Adrian Amos and Chris Prosinski to be the starting free safety. Head coach John Fox named Jackson the starting free safety to begin the season.

He made his first career start and professional regular season debut in the Chicago Bears' season-opener against the Atlanta Falcons and recorded three solo tackles during the 23–17 loss. On October 22, 2017, Jackson recorded four solo tackles, deflected a pass, made his first career interception, recovered a fumble, and scored two touchdowns during the Bears' 17–3 victory over the Carolina Panthers. He recovered a fumble by quarterback Cam Newton, on the Panthers' first drive, and returned it for a 75-yard touchdown in the first quarter to mark the first score of his career. During the second quarter, Jackson intercepted a pass attempt thrown by Newton, that was intended for wide receiver Kelvin Benjamin, and returned it for a 76-yard touchdown. He earned the NFC Defensive Player of the Week and became the first player in NFL history with multiple 75-plus-yard defensive touchdowns in the same game. On December 10, 2017, Jackson celebrated his 24th birthday and recorded an interception, forced a fumble after stripping the ball from A. J. Green, and recovered it during the Bears' 33–7 victory over the Cincinnati Bengals. In Week 17, he collected a season-high 11 combined tackles (five solo) in the Bears' 23–10 loss at the Minnesota Vikings.

He finished his rookie season in 2017 with 73 combined tackles (55 solo), six pass deflections, two interceptions, two touchdowns, a forced fumble, and a fumble recovery in 16 games and 16 starts.

2018

Defensive coordinator Vic Fangio returned under new Bears’ head coach Matt Nagy. Jackson and Adrian Amos subsequently retained their roles as the starting safeties in 2018. In Week 2, Jackson recorded three solo tackles, one pass deflection, and made his first career sack during a 24–17 win against the Seattle Seahawks. Jackson sacked Seahawks’ quarterback Russell Wilson for a two-yard loss during the second quarter. He recorded interceptions over the next two games off Arizona Cardinals' Sam Bradford (including a pick-six that was called back for an offside penalty) and Tampa Bay Buccaneers' Ryan Fitzpatrick. On November 4, 2018, Jackson recorded six combined tackles and returned a fumble recovery for a 65-yard touchdown during a 41–9 victory at the Buffalo Bills in Week 9. The following week, he collected a season-high six solo tackles and made two pass deflections during a 34–22 win against the Detroit Lions.

On November 18, 2018, Jackson deflected a pass and returned an interception for a 27-yard touchdown in the Bears’ 25–20 victory against the Minnesota Vikings. Jackson intercepted a pass by Vikings’ quarterback Kirk Cousins, that was intended for wide receiver Laquon Treadwell, during the fourth quarter. The following week, he made three solo tackles, two pass deflections, and returned an interception for a 41-yard touchdown during a 23–16 win against the Detroit Lions. His interception off Matthew Stafford earned the Bears’ a comeback victory and earned Jackson the NFC Defensive Player of the Week. He was also declared the NFC Defensive Player of the Month for his performance during the month.

Against the Green Bay Packers in Week 15, Jackson intercepted Aaron Rodgers to snap Rodgers' record streak without an interception with 402 pass attempts. However, he suffered an ankle injury on the play, forcing him to miss playing time. In his place, Deon Bush started the Week 16 game against the San Francisco 49ers. On December 19, 2018, Jackson was named to the 2019 Pro Bowl roster. Jackson was inactive for the last two games due to an ankle injury (Weeks 16–17) and finished the season with 51 combined tackles (41 solo), 15 pass deflections, six interceptions, two forced fumbles, and three touchdowns in 14 games and 14 starts.

He received an overall grade of 93.2 from Pro Football Focus in 2018, which ranked as the best grade among all qualifying safeties. Jackson was also named to first-team All-Pro along with teammates Khalil Mack, Kyle Fuller, and Tarik Cohen.

Jackson made his return from injury in the 2019 season opener against the Green Bay Packers. In the game, Jackson made two tackles as the Bears lost 10–3. The following week, the Bears won their first game of the season against the Denver Broncos, during which Jackson recorded 10 tackles. The next game against the Washington Redskins, he recovered a fumble forced by teammate Danny Trevathan in the 31–15 win.

In a Week 9 22–14 loss to the Philadelphia Eagles, Jackson had a team-high 11 tackles. During another loss in week 11 against the Los Angeles Rams, he forced a fumble on running back Todd Gurley II which was recovered by teammate Ha Ha Clinton-Dix.

On Thanksgiving Day against the Detroit Lions, Jackson recorded his first interception of the season off a pass thrown by rookie quarterback David Blough with 30 seconds left in the game, sealing a 24–20 Bears' win. In the following week's game against the Dallas Cowboys on Thursday Night Football, Jackson recorded his first sack of the season on Dak Prescott as the Bears won 31–24.

On December 17, Jackson was named to the 2020 Pro Bowl as a starter. In week 17 against the Minnesota Vikings, Jackson intercepted a pass thrown by Sean Mannion and returned it for 14 yards as time expired to seal a 21–19 Bears' win.

On January 3, 2020, the Bears signed Jackson to a four-year $58.4 million contract extension, making him the highest paid safety in the NFL.
