Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Harold Leon Jackson (born January 6, 1946 in Hattiesburg, Mississippi) is a former American football wide receiver who played in the National Football League from 1968 through 1983. Jackson was drafted in the 12th round (323 overall) of the 1968 NFL Draft by the Los Angeles Rams. After appearing in only two games during his rookie season, he was traded to the Philadelphia Eagles and quickly emerged as one of the top receivers in the NFL, finishing the 1969 season with 65 receptions for a league-best 1,116 yards and 9 touchdowns. During his years with the Eagles, Jackson led the NFL in receptions in 1972 and in receiving yardage in both 1969 and 1972. Prior to the 1973 NFL season, the Eagles traded Jackson back to the Rams for quarterback Roman Gabriel. Jackson led the NFL in receiving touchdowns in 1973 with 13 and helped the Rams rebound from a 6-7-1 record the previous season to a 12-2 finish that won them the first of 7 straight NFC West Division Championships.
