WR Jackson Returns to Practice Squad

Posted Dec 1, 2011

The New York Jets have signed wide receiver Dexter Jackson to the practice squad. The announcement was made by general manager Mike Tannenbaum.

Jackson (5'9", 182) was signed to the Jets practice squad Nov. 9 and released eight days later. He spent time with the UFL’s Virginia Destroyers during the 2011 season before being released.

Jackson was selected by Tampa Bay in the second round, (58th overall) of the 2008 NFL Draft. He played in seven games for the Buccaneers in 2008, returning 20 punts for 97 yards and 14 kickoffs for 327 yards. He was signed by Carolina Oct. 12, 2009, after being waived by Tampa Bay on Oct. 31, 2009, and spent the final 12 games of the 2009 season on the Panthers' practice squad. He also saw time with Carolina in the next year's training camp before being waived on Aug. 31, 2010.

Jackson played 55 career games (25 starts) for Appalachian State, helping the school win three consecutive NCAA Division I Football Championship Subdivision titles.
