Running into Rickey Jackson

Posted by ESPN.com's Pat Yasinskas

METAIRIE, La. -- Just had a very cool pre-practice moment in the Saints' media room.

Rickey Jackson, who I argued on Wednesday should be in the Pro Football Hall of Fame, walked in. Wearing a shirt that says "Mr. Saints, 57," Jackson stopped in the media room with former New Orleans running back Dalton Hilliard to get their practice credentials. Yes, even Jackson needs a credential around here.

I got a chance to meet briefly with Jackson. He thanked me for my story, but didn't have anything complimentary to say about my Penn State hat. Jackson, of course, went to the University of Pittsburgh.
