Heads-up: Rickey Jackson's HOF case coming soon

8/4/2009

Posted by ESPN.com's Pat Yasinskas

Just a heads-up that we'll have a Double Coverage feature Wednesday in which I'll make the argument that Rickey Jackson belongs in the Pro Football Hall of Fame.

It's going to be a fairly easy assignment, thanks to you. I asked for your help a couple of weeks ago when I first drew this task. Your passionate responses about why Jackson belongs in the Hall of Fame helped me prepare for this one.

I also talked to Carolina assistant head coach Jim Skipper, who was a New Orleans assistant back during the Jackson days. I've also got a request to talk to Panthers assistant coach Sam Mills III Tuesday. Mills grew up around Jackson because his late, great father played with Jackson.

Again, thanks to all who responded to help me make Jackson's case for the Hall of Fame.
