Texans resign Jackson to a 4-year-deal worth $32 million, $20 million of it guaranteed.
Jackson drafted in the first round in 2010 has been a starter ever since. The 26-year-old Jackson would have been one of the top defensive backs available once NFL Free Agency begins on Tuesday.

According to reports, Jackson drew some serious interest from the Eagles and the Jets, their offers were comparable, but Jackson likes what's being built in Houston.
