The Philadelphia Eagles are one of a handful of franchises that have a quarterback competition this offseason. Theres has been one of the more highly covered however. Earlier this offseason he said that he thinks Michael Vick will win the quarterback competition.

“Oh, really, honestly, I just really took a guess,” Jackson told reporters, via Comcast SportsNet Philadelphia. “I took an honest opinion that came from myself.”

“At the end of the day, Vick has been here, he has been going on (13 years), and I just think he has accomplished some great things — and the maturity level,” Jackson said. “He’s matured a lot since the situation happened and coming out of jail.”

Perhaps Jackson didn’t consider that he’d be catching passes from Nick Foles if he wins the competition. What he said could be taken as a slight towards Foles but Jackson thinks he understands.

“He understands what I said and what I basically put out there,” Jackson said. “Nick’s a great player, nothing to take away from him. [I] never said anything bad about him. Just an opinion I thought.”

But despite a disappointing season last year, optimism is abound with jackson.

“I still feel we’re a top team in the NFL,” Jackson said.
