08:57 PM ET 05.27 | Jackson gave a stunning demonstration on how well he's picking up the new defense during a six-play sequence in last Thursday's offseason practice session. Jackson, a 6-4, 296-pounder, leaped high and swatted two passes in four plays by quarterback Alex Smith. Two plays later, he crashed through the line and would have been credited with a sack if full contact were allowed in practice. "I'm very impressed with Tyson," said new head coach Andy Reid. "I've been impressed since we've been together here. Not many guys are going to outwork him on the field. Pass rush was not his forte, but he's working like crazy to get better. As a coach, that's all you can ask for. He's a big man who can move a little bit."

Deflecting passes thrown by Alex Smith isn't news worthy since Smith hasn't even made 1 single Pro Bowl.
