Jackson also shared posts of Nation of Islam leader Louis Farrakhan, who has been labeled anti-Semitic by the Anti-Defamation League.

Jackson apologized for the posts while the Eagles released a statement calling the posts "harmful" and "appalling."

Edelman said he decided to identify as Jewish later in life and is proud of his heritage, the community, and the culture. Edelman said he was once called a "k---" on the football field in 2011, saying there is "no room" for anti-Semitism in the world.

"Anti-Semitism is one of the oldest forms of hatred," Edelman said. "It's rooted in ignorance and fear.
