Malik Jackson signs with Eagles while sporting Birmingham High letterman’s jacket

Birmingham football coach Jim Rose received a text from an assistant coach on Thursday bragging about former Patriot star Malik Jackson wearing a Birmingham letterman’s jacket to his introductory news conference with the Philadelphia Eagles.

“I think he’s had that one specially made since he’s gotten larger,” Rose said.

Jackson, a defensive lineman, graduated from Birmingham with his twin brother, Marquis, in 2008. He signed a three-year deal worth as much as $30 million.

He has returned to Birmingham to run a free camp for kids during the summer.
