Robert E. Jackson (born April 1, 1953) is a former American football guard who played eleven professional seasons with the National Football League's Cleveland Browns. Jackson attended Duke University where he arrived as a quarterback (a position he played at North Mecklenburg High School) with his twin brother Ken, a tight end. Robert filled out over his time at Duke, eventually landing on the offensive line. From a humble start as a free agent, Robert was honored as a Cleveland Browns Legend in September 2014.
Robert started working in the insurance business in the offseason during his playing career. He and Doug Dieken eventually formed Jackson-Dieken and Associates in Westlake, Ohio, where Robert serves as principal.
