The Seahawks extended an original-round tender to Jackson, meaning his one-year deal for 2020 will pay him $2.133 million—the same as wide receiver David Moore and center Joey Hunt. Jacob Hollister, tendered at a second-round level, will receive $3.259 million.

Jackson, entering his fifth season in the NFL, started a career-high three games in 2019, with his only other start coming in 2018. Playing in 15 games last season, Jackson posted career-highs in sacks with two, as well as QB hits, with three.

If Jackson makes the 53-man roster, 2020 will be the 27-year-old’s fourth season in Seattle after originally signing with the Raiders as an undrafted free agent out of Texas Tech in 2016.
