Jackson did, however, say that there have been no contract talks yet between his agent and the Texans and he’s mentally prepared to play elsewhere if the feeling isn’t mutual.
Even so, Jackson made it clear that he wants to be back in Houston for the 2019 season.
Jackson should be in line for a solid contract next year, given the fact that he put together a good season and should be one of the best available cornerbacks in the free agent market.
Jackson, 30, is a former first-round pick of the Texans back in 2010. He played out the final year of his four-year, $34 million contract that included $20 million guaranteed and is now in line to be an unrestricted free agent for the first time in his career.
In 2018, Jackson appeared in all 16 games for the Texans and recorded 87 tackles, one sack, two interceptions, two forced fumbles, a recovery and 17 pass defenses. Pro Football Focus has him rated as the No. 2 cornerback out of 110 qualifying players.
