Seahawks Re-Signing DE Branden Jackson

     

According to Ian Rapoport, the Seahawks are re-signing DE Branden Jackson

Jackson was released a week ago but Rapoport says Seattle decided to bring him back under a different deal, presumably one that’s less than the $2.1 million restricted free agent tender he was under before.

He’ll officially sign Wednesday after clearing the testing protocol.

Jackson, 27, originally signed on with the Raiders as an undrafted free agent out of Texas Tech back in May of 2016 but was cut loose coming out of the preseason and signed him to their practice squad.

The Raiders eventually promoted him to their active roster but, once again, made him among their final roster cuts the following preseason. Seattle signed him to their practice squad in September of 2017 and was eventually promoted to the active roster.

He returned to the Seahawks as an exclusive rights free agent for the 2018 and 2019 seasons before signing a one-year, restricted deal with Seattle this offseason worth $2.133 million.

In 2019, Jackson appeared in 15 games and recorded 20 total tackles and two sacks. Pro Football Focus rated him as the No. 101 overall edge defender out of 107 qualifying players.
