Sources: CB Jackson to visit Eagles

Free-agent cornerback Marlin Jackson will visit the Eagles, sources told the Daily News. Jackson is first scheduled to visit the Ravens.

Jackson, of Sharon, Pa., has played five seasons, all with the Indianapolis Colts. He played 56 games with Indy and had 284 tackles and four interceptions. He played collegiately at Michigan. Jackson, 6-0, 196, has played safety as well as corner. He is coming off two successive seasons ended by serious knee injuries.

Also, as expected, a team source said the Eagles will pick up the $1.5 million bonus due Michael Vick on Tuesday. There was little chance the team would be able to trade Vick as long as other teams thought he might pop free, by way of the Birds declining to pick up the bonus. Picking it up doesn't really make him any more or less likely to be traded before the 2010 season.
