He struggled covering wide receivers in space or man-to-man coverage this preseason, according to the Atlanta Journal-Constitution. A former standout at LSU, Jackson started three games for Atlanta.

His biggest play was returning an interception 95 yards for a touchdown against the New Orleans Saints during his rookie season.
