The Eagles have signed former Colts CB Marlin Jackson to a two-year deal to play free safety.

Jackson is a talented player whose interception of Tom Brady in the 2006 AFC title game sent the Colts to the Super Bowl, where they eventually won a title. But knee injuries have derailed his career the past few seasons.

The plan is for Jackson to compete at free safety with Macho Harris and get a chance to play in the nickel defense.

"The opportunity here to play free safety and to play nickel was very appealing," Jackson said on a conference call with the media on Wednesday. "This defense is a very aggressive, tough, physical defense and that’s the type of player that I feel I am. I feel that I bring a lot to the free safety position as far as being able to have some coverage ability and being able to blitz and being able to tackle well.”
