Jackson, who the Cowboys took 216th overall in the 2016 NFL Draft, gives the Packers some needed backfield depth behind Jamaal Williams and Ty Montgomery, with Aaron Jones set to miss two games out of the gate, as he serves a suspension.
Jackson carried the ball four times for eight yards while catching four of his six targets for 28 yards in Sunday's preseason game against the Cardinals.
He doesn't appear to be any threat to Rod Smith or Bo Scarbrough for the No. 2 RB job behind Ezekiel Elliott, but Jackson may have shown enough as a passing-down option this preseason -- both with his receiving and blocking -- to still be in the running for a roster spot.
Jackson (knee) was seen going through agility drills in late June, per his official Instagram account.
Jackson spent the entirety of last season on the Browns' injured reserve list after clearing waivers. He was waived by the team in May of 2018 and was signed by the Cowboys a few weeks later. In the drills, Jackson showed no signs of limitation with his previously-injured knee and should be set to go for training camp.
Jackson was one of the Cowboys' four sixth-round draft picks in 2016. He was let go by the team in December of that year and quickly being picked up by the Browns. Jackson spent all of 2017 on injured reserve and has yet to appear in a regular-season contest.
Jackson (knee) was waived by the Browns on Thursday.
Jackson was claimed by Cleveland near the end of the 2016 season, missed ended up missing all of 2017 after he was waived/injured in June and reverted back to the Browns' injured reserve with a knee injury. Now that he's presumably healthy again, he'll look to secure another depth gig.
