The trio of Jamaal Williams, Aaron Jones, and Devante Mays join the veterans — Ty Montgomery, Christine Michael, and Don Jackson.
That number was at six at least until Monday morning, however. Today, it appears that the Packers are parting ways with Jackson, at least based on this tweet from Jackson himself:
Gods got a new plan for me and the NFL is a business !! Thank you to the Packers organization for taking a chance on me a year ago! #God100— Don Jackson (@DonnyjGLA6) May 1, 2017
Jackson was an undrafted free agent signing last season, meaning he had the least amount of capital invested in him by the team and is therefore a victim of a numbers game. The Packers likely would not have enough snaps to divide up among six tailbacks in OTAs or training camp, so letting him loose now is probably a mutual benefit; the Packers get to focus on developing their rookies while Jackson can get a head start on finding a new NFL home.
Jackson rushed 10 times for 32 yards last season in three games.
We wish Jackson the best of luck in his continuing NFL career.
