Free agent center Jamaal Jackson gave coach Tom Coughlin the strong impression that he would retire following last weekend’s unsuccessful tryout at Giants rookie minicamp.

Either Jackson misspoke or Coughlin misheard, however, because the onetime Eagles starter isn’t ready to call it quits, officially, just yet.

“I don’t know what I’m going to do yet, so it’s kind of funny to keep hearing that I decided to retire,” Jackson, 32, told Reuben Frank of CSN Philly. “… The truth is I don’t know. I haven’t filed any papers. I haven’t made the decision, and I won’t until the summer.

I don’t know what I’m going to do yet.”

So if a team needs a center, they might want to call Jackson.
