Seahawks' Mike Jackson: Listed as backup
Jackson is listed as a backup to Tre Brown on the depth chart ahead of Sunday's game versus the Rams, Bob Condotta of The Seattle Times reports.
Head coach Pete Carroll expects both Jackson and Brown to play in Sunday's game, but it appears Brown has the edge after Jackson had a rough preseason. Both cornerbacks will look to make an impact to secure a larger role once first-round rookie Devon Witherspoon (hamstring) is healthy and ready for NFL play.... See More ... See Less
Seahawks' Mike Jackson: Competing for starting spot
Jackson is competing for a spot as a starting corner, Curtis Crabtree of Fox 13 Seattle reports.
Jackson will have a chance at starting Week 1 despite struggling in Saturday's win versus the Cowboys. Rookie first-round pick Devon Witherspoon is now getting playing time in the slot, leaving the starting spot on the outside opposite Riq Woolen open for the 26-year-old.... See More ... See Less
Seahawks' Mike Jackson: Projects as backup
Jackson will likely serve as a backup in 2023 after the Seahawks selected Devon Witherspoon in the first round of this year's draft, Bob Condotta of The Seattle Times reports.
Head coach Pete Carroll mentioned that Jackson and Witherspoon will compete for the job at left cornerback while second-year corner Tariq Woolen starts on the right side and Coby Bryant mans the slot. Carroll embraces competition, but when a team picks a corner fifth overall, he's going to start sooner than later. Jackson posted 75 tackles (63 solo) last season as a starter, so he'll be a useful IDP option if he does crack the starting lineup.... See More ... See Less
Seahawks' Mike Jackson: Re-signs with Seattle
Seattle re-signed Jackson, who was an exclusive rights free agent, on Monday, Bob Condotta of The Seattle Times reports.
Jackson posted 74 tackles, 12 pass defenses, two fumble recoveries and one interception across 17 appearances in 2022, his first campaign as a full-time starter. The 2019 fifth-round pick currently projects to be the top cornerback opposite Tariq Woolen in Seattle's secondary, but the Seahawks could add more cornerback depth in the 2023 NFL Draft....

Seahawks' Mike Jackson: Productive in first year as starter
Jackson posted 75 tackles (63 solo), 12 pass breakups, two fumble recoveries and an interception over 17 regular-season games in 2022.
Jackson played just 28 defensive snaps through his first three NFL seasons, but he started all 17 games in 2022 and played nearly every snap. The 2019 fifth-round pick was quite productive for fantasy purposes. However, he'll be a free agent in March, and he'll likely need to battle for a starting job in 2023 whether in Seattle or not....

Seahawks' Mike Jackson: Season-best eight stops
Jackson recorded eight tackles and one pass defended in Sunday's 40-34 loss to the Raiders.

He made a season-high eight stops, bringing his tackle total on the campaign to 52. Jackson has also chipped in nine passes defended and two recovered fumbles across 11 games.... See More ...

Seahawks' Mike Jackson: Breaks up three passes
Jackson posted seven solo tackles and three pass breakups in Sunday's 27-13 win over the Giants.
Jackson was outstanding in coverage against the Giants. He now has 34 tackles (33 solo) and seven pass breakups through eight games. Jackson has operated as a starter all season, and there's no indication that will change anytime soon.... See More ... See Less
Seahawks' Mike Jackson: Listed as starter
Jackson is listed as the starting left cornerback on Seattle's depth chart, Bob Condotta of The Seattle Times reports.
This was unexpected, as Jackson has just 28 defensive snaps to his name through three NFL seasons. With Artie Burns (groin) and Sidney Jones (concussion) sidelined, Jackson is on track to start in Week 1 against the Broncos. It wouldn't be surprising if he eventually gave up that job to either Burns or Jones once they're healthy.... See More ... See Less
Mike Jackson: Restored to practice squad
The Seahawks activated Jackson (undisclosed) from the practice squad COVID-19 list Wednesday, John Boyle of the Seahawks' official site reports.
Jackson spent a week and a half away from the team, but it's not yet clear whether he tested positive for the virus. He should continue to serve as organizational depth as part of the practice squad.... See More ... See Less

The Seahawks placed Jackson (undisclosed) on the practice squad COVID-19 list Sunday, John Boyle of the Seahawks' official site reports.
The 24-year-old has been on Seattle's practice squad this year after he was waived by the Patriots in early September. It's not yet known whether Jackson has tested positive for the virus, but he'll be forced to spend some time away from the team.... See More ... See Less
Michael Jackson: Out of New England
Jackson was waived by the Patriots on Thursday, Mike Reiss of ESPN.com reports.
Jackson was dealt from the Lions to the Patriots back at the beginning of August for a conditional 2022 draft pick, but he clearly was less than impressive with his new club. The cornerback played in one game last season for the Lions, contributing only on special teams.... See More ... See Less
Patriots' Michael Jackson: Dealt to New England
The Lions traded Jackson to the Patriots on Sunday.
Earlier Sunday, the Lions announced cuts to whittle down to 80 players, including sending Jackson to waivers. Before the move could become official, though, New England offered a conditional 2022 draft pick to Detroit to obtain his services. The Patriots' cornerback group is robust, but Jackson nonetheless will get a shot to make the regular-season roster.... See More ... See Less
Lions' Mike Jackson: Heads to Detroit
Jackson signed a contract with the Lions on Wednesday, Tim Twentyman of the Lions' official site reports.
Jackson was drafted during the fifth round by the Cowboys in April but failed to make the season-opening roster and has since been on the team's practice squad. The 22-year-old should provide secondary depth for the Lions with Tracy Walker (knee), Darius Slay (hamstring) and Amani Oruwariye (knee) dealing with injuries.... See More ... See Less
Cowboys' Michael Jackson: Heading to Dallas
The Cowboys selected Jackson in the fifth round of the 2019 NFL Draft, 158th overall.
Jackson, a cornerback out of Miami (FL), broke out as a junior with four picks and nine pass breakups in 2017 to earn Second-Team All-ACC honors. He didn't record any interceptions as a senior but still started all 13 games for the Hurricanes. Jackson is a press corner with good speed (4.45) and decent length (32 1/2-inch arms) to grapple with receivers. His selection could be a sign of some dissatisfaction with Jourdan Lewis....
