This is the second installment of a series of articles covering each player on the Cleveland Browns roster. There will be a new player released every day from now until the Browns preseason begins. If you enjoy (tolerate) this article, I encourage you to check back each day to read each one. I promise to make them a quick read. I actually call these articles “Kyler Murrays” because they are so short.
#34- Robert Jackson– CB- UNLV
Jackson is of no relation to Hue. I actually don’t know this for sure, but I am willing to jump in Lake Erie if I am wrong. He has bounced around from practice squad to practice squad over the last year so I’m only going to give him a 1-31 chance of making the Browns roster this season. To be fair, I should probably watch the tape on him before coming to any conclusions though.
As previously mentioned, he spent his rookie year bouncing around on various practice squads. He spent time with the Colts, Texans, and Browns, but was never able to find the field in an NFL game. However, in college, he recorded 52 tackles and had 9 passes defended in two seasons at UNLV.
Just like any practice squad player, it is going to be tough for Jackson to make the opening day roster. This is especially true seeing how John Dorsey has spent considerable assets on the cornerback position. The Browns used a 2018 first round pick on Denzel Ward and their 2019 second-round selection on Greedy Williams (well 2013 pick according to Jim Brown). Also, when I typed in “Robert Jackson Browns” in Google Images, 90% of the pictures are of Hue and RGIII. Not a good omen for this Robert.
If you haven’t yet checked it out, yesterday’s Browns Breakdown was on Eric Kush.
