Roster move

The Packers signed free agent safety Bobby Jackson on Friday.<p>

Jackson (6-3, 214) originally signed with the New York Jets as an undrafted free agent out of the University of Illinois in April of last year, then was released the following month. He signed as a free agent with the Indianapolis Colts in June 2002 and subsequently was waived (Aug. 26) in training camp.

Jackson, a native of Crescent Valley, Ore., started every game in his last three seasons (1998, 2000-01) for Illinois with a redshirt year in 1999 due to a knee injury. He finished out his career with 228 tackles (159 solo), 16 stops for loss, six interceptions and 26 passes defensed. He added six hits with a pair of stops behind the line of scrimmage against Wisconsin in 2001 and was named to the All-Big Ten Conference second team that season.
