Mike Sando, our friend at the Trib, report that we have officially signed FB/TE Tony Jackson to a three-year deal.
Fullbacks usually take a while to develop in the NFL. But this guy is going to be a good one, I can feel it.
Just like we speak NOW of what a genius move it was to draft Michael Boulware, a linebacker, and convert him to safety, so it will be about converting this young tight end to a 265 lb. fullback.
Just watch- we'll be using him and Mack Strong in short yardage situations this season. read this scouting report to see what I mean, if you haven't already.
