Supplemental Declarer Jackson Signs with DallasPosted: July 31, 2013
Toby Jackson, one of the players who declared for the 2013 NFL Supplemental Draft that occurred in mid-July, became the first of the six declarers to sign with an NFL team.
The defensive end, who declared for the supplemental draft following an academic dismissal from the University of Central Florida, was ineligible to play in 2012. Jackson played in nine games in 2011, including two starts, totaling three tackles and a blocked punt. Dallas will likely utilize Jackson as depth at both end and tackle in their new 4-3 defensive scheme, as both Anthony Spencer and Jay Ratliff are expected to be out until the preseason at the earliest.
No other supplemental declarer has received interest from teams at this point, although representatives of multiple NFL teams were in attendance for ex-Southern Alabama defensive back Damond Smith’s pro day just days prior to the draft on July 11.
