In the deal, Jackson agreed to plead guilty, but whether or how much jail time he will serve will be up to a judge, the station said.
The deal would require the former congressman from the South Side to repay "hundreds of thousands of dollars" that he allegedly spent on a Rolex watch, furniture and travel expenses, NBC said.
Jackson resigned after winning re-election in November, citing the federal probe and his treatment for depression. The district is currently without a congressman until a special election April 9.
