Jackson appeared in 13 games last season with the Jets and even started in 6 of them. He recorded no interceptions but had 2 passes defended along with 28 total tackles (26 solo).
Before he was signed by the Jets as an undrafted free agent, he played 4 years at Nebraska (2016-2019) and had 5 career interceptions. His best individual season came during his senior year when Jackson finished with 40 total tackles (30 solo) with 3 interceptions and a fumble recovery.
His full stats over his 4 seasons come out to 123 total tackles (92 solo), 22 passes defended, plus the 5 interceptions touched on earlier.
It’s likely he’ll still be in the NFL for this season as he’d be good depth on any team that brings him in.
