According to Tony Pauline, the Patriots have reportedly left the door open to bring back recently released defensive back J.C. Jackson once the embattled player gets “his off-the-field issues in order.”

Jackson was recently released for what appeared to be financial reasons but was coming off a season where the club had acquired him back from the Rams to bolster their secondary following the loss of rookie defensive back Christian Gonzalez, who suffered a season-ending shoulder injury.

However, an issue ahead of the Germany game where Jackson reportedly missed curfew with Jack Jones saw him get left behind, although unlike Jones, Jackson appeared to be remorseful after the trip and things seemed to be headed in a positive direction.

However, Jackson played the next three contests, taking part in 92%, 100%, and 83% of the snaps against the Giants, Chargers, and Steelers, respectively, before dressing against the Chiefs but not playing a snap.  He then finished the 2023 campaign on the reserved/non-football list as he dealt with what was reported as “mental health” issues.

Hopefully for Jackson’s sake, he’s able to get himself back to a better place and potentially resume his football career.  The situation in Las Vegas with Chandler Jones remains a scary reminder of what players sometimes go through, and one can only hope Jackson’s situation isn’t as severe as what Jones appears to be dealing with.
