That was supposed to be a deep out but Brees threw the ball a tad early and too short (due to pressure); even the receiver didn't expect the ball to be there.
All i know is that when I watched a coaching video, they prefer the ball to be throw between 35 to 40 yards on such a route.
It's understandable that Jackson looked much higher up in the air if he expected the ball to be thrown deeper (and thefore with a higher trajectory).
But since the ball was thrown short and low, it went below his eyesight.
