As deep as the Los Angeles Rams’ receiver room was last season, it got even better this year with the additions of DeSean Jackson and Tutu Atwell. That left Trishton Jackson on the outside looking in.

After making the team as a rookie in 2020, he was waived by the Rams this week as part of final roster cuts. He’ll take on a new venture in Minnesota, though, signing to the Vikings’ practice squad on Thursday.

He teased the move on Twitter and after it was initially unclear if he’d be joining the 53-man roster or the practice squad, the NFL transaction wire shows it was the latter.

When Jackson was cut by the Rams on Tuesday, he shared a message for the Rams on Twitter, thanking them for the opportunity to get his career started “with one of the best organizations in sports.”

Jackson has what it takes to play on Sundays, he just needs to keep developing his skill set, which he’ll be able to do in Minnesota.
