FEB. 17, 2021 – The whole situation was bizarre considering Jackson made more than $70 million in his NFL career and was widely loved in the community by family, friends and law enforcement.

So, why was he at that hotel alone? Sheriff Chronister has a theory…

“Well this is true speculation but what the family is telling me is that he suffered from CTE. They believe he had a lot of concussion problems and when you suffer from that, you’re not yourself.” Sheriff Chronister continued, “[The family believes] wholeheartedly all of these actions are the result of what he suffered while he was playing in the NFL.”

Jackson spent 12 years in the pros — making 3 Pro Bowls during his time with the San Diego Chargers and the Tampa Bay Bucs. He formally retired in 2018 but last played in 2016.
