The Bears need Jackson to get back to his previous elite level after a couple of disappointing seasons. He was one of the best safeties in the league but his form dropped off badly after he signed a new contract. In short, Jackson isn’t playing as the fans expected but his salary has a serious impact on the cap.
He didn’t snatch a single interception in 2021 and only forced a single fumble all season. That’s simply not good enough for a player of his standard but the question remains if he can turn it around. Chicago believes so but he will have to live up to the hype that he created (via AL.com).
