Vikings Claim Linebacker Justin Jackson Off Waivers From Lions

Posted Aug 18, 2014

On Monday the Vikings announced that the club has claimed LB Justin Jackson off waivers from Detroit.

Jackson originally joined the Lions as an undrafted rookie free agent earlier this offseason. While at Wake Forest, Jackson appeared in 36 games, tallied 193 tackles, recorded 7 sacks, forced 3 fumbles and recovered 2 fumbles as a three-year player. The Richmond, North Carolina native redshirted in 2009 as a freshman and missed the 2010 season with a knee injury. 

To make room for Jackson, the Vikings waived (injured) LB Dom DeCicco.
