The agent for center Jamaal Jackson expects the veteran Eagle to be released once the NFL's new league year begins in March.
"It would surprise me greatly if they did not release him," said Jackson's agent, J.R. Rickert. "But that's a team decision."
Jackson is the longest-tenured Eagle, having joined the team in 2003 as an undrafted free agent, and he started every game in 2006, 2007, and 2008 and the first 15 of 2009 before tearing the anterior cruciate ligament in his left knee at the end of that season. He came back for the 2010 opener but tore his triceps, and he lost his starting job last summer to rookie Jason Kelce.
