Marlin Jackson leaves Philly without a contract

Marlin Jackson has left the building and he isn't an Eagle. At least not yet. Despite mutual interest between the Eagles and Jackson, the free agent cornerback left the Birds after two days of visiting without a contract. Apparently the Eagles need to see a little more out of Jackson physically before they decide to offer him a deal.

While there is still a chance the Eagles sign Jackson, who is now off to visit the Jets, I wouldn't hold my breath waiting. As I've stated before, while Jackson doesn't excite me too much, I'm all for signing him for the right deal, meaning on the cheap. Jackson's injury issues are worrying but if he manages to stay healthy, he could be a real bargain.
