CB Robert Jackson
Robert Jackson was not among the most likely to make the team. He still isn’t and his stock only got worse. Jackson’s play against the New York Giants was anything but good. Aside from not getting beat deep, Jackson didn’t do anything of value against the Giants, in fact, the Giants looked pretty dang good throwing the ball in his direction.
As a team, the Giants went 21 of 32 for the day. While the Browns were able to keep the Giants’ receivers in front of them all day, that didn’t change the fact that Jackson got picked on a lot in the second half and saw the Giants gain ground.
Jackson also found himself getting in some hot water in the fourth quarter, where a facemask from Jackson allowed the Giants to get inside the red zone and eventually score. It was one of the more costly mistakes on the day and considering Jackson isn’t realistically playing for a main roster spot, but for a practice squad roster spot, errors like that one are costly. Those are the moment’s coaches remember the most when you’re a fringe player.
Jackson has a deep group of corners ahead of him, and his inconsistent play hasn’t been helping him. One thing that has, however, is the injury bug. Greedy Williams suffered a groin injury during the game, making Jackson someone who might stick around longer than expected.
