Jackson is in the first year of a $2 million contract with Buffalo, having signed a reserve/future contract this summer. Jackson has an $815k cap hit for the 2021 season. However, there is no dead cap if he is cut.
Last year, the Bills selected Jackson in the seventh round of the draft, but he was cut before the start of the regular season. He was placed on Buffalo’s practice squad after being released from waivers.
He spent the whole season on the team’s practice squad, despite being promoted to the active roster many times. Initially, Jackson was activated for Buffalo’s Week 5 game against the Tennessee Titans, but he did not see any game action.
Jackson was activated once more for the Week 7 game against the New York Jets, and with Josh Norman and Levi Wallace out with injuries, he started the game and played every snap. An early contributor, he finished with three tackles, two pass breakups, and a game-changing interception right before halftime that the Bills used to rally for an 18-10 victory.
Jackson continued to play in four more games during the regular season, including key roles against the Arizona Cardinals (in which he had eight tackles) and the Miami Dolphins (in which he made two tackles).
Jackson was promoted to the active roster from the practice squad before the Divisional Round and AFC Championship Game, although he was not used in either game.
