Jackson Jeffcoat lands on Redskins practice squad


Jim Jeffcoat played in a lot of Cowboys-Redskins games during his career in Dallas, but his son might find himself on the opposite side of those games in the future.

The Redskins announced that they have added linebacker Jackson Jeffcoat to their practice squad. The younger Jeffcoat spent training camp with the Seahawks after signing with Seattle as one of the highest profile undrafted free agents in May.

Jeffcoat wasn’t able to make Seattle’s 53-man roster, but he did win the Big 12 defensive player of the year and Ted Hendricks Award for the top collegiate defensive end during his final year at Texas. Brian Orakpo won the same award in 2008 and he’s set to be a free agent after the season, so Jeffcoat could work his way into Washington’s future plans if he does well in practice this season.

The Redskins also signed offensive lineman Braxton Cave to the practice squad and dropped linebacker Chaz Sutton and offensive lineman Tevita Stevens.

    No that’s what I like to see!! Jackson Jeffcoat is playing Iron Man Football! He’s now a tight end! Coach Gennaro would be pleased!

    This kid was a real disappointment in pre-season. And that is a typo above….Ted Hendricks Award is for Defensive End not Tight End. Good luck Jackson fix those pec muscles.

    Looked kinda small and slow in the preseason. Hope things can work out for him.

    Would liked to have kept him and developed him into a pass-rusher but saw too little out of him in exhibition action.

    It is interesting that both the Big 12 defensive player of the year & the SEC co-defensive player of the year didn’t make a 53 man roster. It probably says something about the different levels of competition.

    Lots of PED rumours about this kid at Texas. Was always thin and underweight. Then coming off a torn pec he suddenly blows up with muscle his senior year, gains an explosive first step, and has a monster season. He appeared shrunken at the combine and looked like a shadow of his former self in the preseason.
