Jack had 2 standout seasons at UCLA. As a linebacker and running back, he was recognized as both the Pac-12 Defensive Freshman of the Year and Pac-12 Offensive Freshman of the Year. He made the All-Pac-12 second team in each of his first 2 seasons.
In September 2015, Jack tore his meniscus during UCLA practice, ending his junior season prematurely. Jack withdrew from the team in October to focus on rehabbing and preparing to play professionally.
The Jacksonville Jaguars selected Jack No. 36 overall in the second round of the 2016 NFL Draft. Jack spent his first 6 seasons with the Jaguars.
Jack was released by the Jagaurs in March 2022. He signed a 2-year deal with the Pittsburgh Steelers, but was released after 1 year with the club. The Eagles signed Jack on Aug. 6.
In 7 seasons, Jack played in 103 regular-season games, making 95 starts, recording 617 tackles.
