Vikings Sign Former Rams WR Trishton Jackson to Practice Squad

Formerly of the Los Angeles Rams, wide receiver Trishton Jackson has signed with the Minnesota Vikings.

As a result of the NFL roster cutdown, wide receiver Trishton Jackson was waived by the Rams on Tuesday.

Jackson, 23, joined the Rams as an undrafted free agent last season as a rookie. He registered five receptions for 55 yards and one touchdown this preseason.

Listed at 6-foot-1 and 191 pounds, Jackson has adequate length to win contested catches. However, his slender frame will be put into question as he'll have to prove he can get off press coverage on a regular basis.
