INDIANAPOLIS (WISH/AP) - Cornerback Marlin Jackson tells 24-Hour News 8 he will not be offered a new contract with the team and will not return next season.
Jackson was probably best known for intercepting the pass of Patriots quarterback Tom Brady in the final moments of the 2006 AFC Championship Game. The play sealed the Colts' win and sent them to the Super Bowl, which they would go on to win.
Jackson joins cornerback Tim Jennings and safety Aaron Francisco on a growing list of players the Colts have declined to offer new contracts, allowing them to become free agents.
Defensive end Raheem Brock tweeted Thursday that he too is headed out of town.
"The superbowl was the last time ull see me in a colts uniform! Its been real indy!" read the tweet.
Agents for Jennings and Francisco confirmed the decisions Thursday to The Associated Press.
Jennings and Francisco on Friday will become unrestricted free agents who can sign with any team and the Colts will not be compensated for the loss. Jennings played primarily in nickel packages last season and was ninth on the team with 51 tackles.
Francisco played primarily on special teams after being claimed off of waivers from Arizona in September.
The Colts were still trying to work out a deal with starting linebacker Gary Brackett and debating whether to offer tenders to five other starters from last season.
