The Jets have signed wide receiver Dexter Jackson to the practice squad. To make room, they have waived DT/TE Jarron Gilbert. Jackson was Tampa Bay's second round pick in 2009, and most recently spent time on Marty Schottenheimers UFL team, the Virginia Destroyers, in 2011. Jackson is 5'9" and 182 pounds. He apparently ran a 4.27 40-yard dash at the Combine.

This obviously isn't a huge move. I liked Gilbert and his potential, but I imagine Marty said to his son that there might be something hidden with Jackson. Moves with the practice squad rarely have any effect on the team, although it is curious how many small manuevers the team has made this year. Let us know what you think below.
