Ravens waived/injured CB Asa Jackson (ankle).

He'll revert to injured reserve once he clears waivers. A role player, Jackson was thrust into heavy snaps in 2014, but is a fringe NFLer. He turns 26 in December.

Giants waived CB Asa Jackson.

Jackson was claimed off waivers just two days ago. Jackson tore his PCL last December, and may have been in rougher shape than the G-Men were anticipating.
Tue, Sep 8, 2015 04:55:00 PM

Giants claimed CB Asa Jackson off waivers from the Ravens.

Jackson opened Ravens camp as the favorite to return kicks but was cut after losing two fumbles during the preseason. He was a below average defender last year, grading 96th out of 110 qualified cornerbacks on Pro Football Focus.

Ravens waived CB/KR Asa Jackson.

Jackson started six games for the injury-ravaged Ravens last season before ending up on injured reserve with a torn PCL in December. Jackson appeared to have earned a roster spot as a kick returner early in the preseason, but he fumbled twice in the final two preseason games.

Ravens CB Asa Jackson is done for the season with a torn PCL.

Baltimore has suffered an unruly amount of cornerback injuries this season. Jimmy Smith, Tramain Jacobs, Danny Gorrer, and Aaron Ross are already all on I.R. Jackson is under contract for the minimum in 2015 and will compete for a job.
Mon, Dec 15, 2014 04:07:00 PM

Ravens activated CB Asa Jackson off injured reserve/designated to return.

Jackson was a disaster before injuring his toe Week 5 against the Colts, but the injury-ravaged Ravens will welcome him back with open arms. Jackson is expected to play extensively Week 14 against the Dolphins. CB Tramain Jacobs was played on injured reserve in a corresponding move.
Sat, Dec 6, 2014 12:36:00 PM

Ravens placed CB Asa Jackson (toe) on injured reserve/designated to return.

Jackson has a severely sprained toe. He'll be eligible to return Week 15. The Ravens signed CB Dominique Franks to take his roster spot. Franks will compete with Chykie Brown to be the Ravens' No. 3 corner while Jackson is out.
Wed, Oct 8, 2014 10:29:00 AM

Ravens CB Asa Jackson was forced from Baltimore's Week 2 game against the Steelers with a concussion, and will not return.

It's bad news for a team already missing RCB Lardarius Webb (back). The Ravens now have precious little depth behind Jimmy Smith and Chykie Brown.
Thu, Sep 11, 2014 09:54:00 PM

Asa Jackson has emerged as the favorite for the Ravens' No. 3 cornerback job.

Chykie Brown is Jackson's main competition. Jackson picked off Blaine Gabbert in Thursday night's preseason opener and has been the better player in training camp. He just needs to stay on the field; Jackson has been suspended in each of his first two NFL seasons. Jimmy Smith and Lardarius Webb are the starters.
Fri, Aug 8, 2014 09:39:00 AM

Ravens CB Asa Jackson's eight-game suspension has ended.

Jackson, a 2012 fifth-round pick out of Cal Poly, has been suspended twice due to unauthorized use of Adderall. He'll contribute on special teams.
Sat, Nov 9, 2013 11:32:00 AM

NFL suspended Ravens CB Asa Jackson eight games for violating the NFL's policy against performance enhancing substances.

The Ravens may have to cut the cord on Jackson after this one. He was banned four games late last season for the same violation of PED policy. Jackson was a fifth-round pick in 2012. He's a slot corner and special-teams type.
Fri, Aug 2, 2013 04:12:00 PM

Ravens CB Asa Jackson has been suspended four games for violating the NFL's policy on performance enhancing substances.

The Baltimore Sun hears it's an Adderall-related suspension. The fifth-round rookie had been active as a special teamer the past three weeks. He won't be eligible to return until the second week of the playoffs, provided the Ravens make it that far.
Tue, Dec 11, 2012 04:55:00 PM

Ravens agreed to terms with No. 169 overall pick CB Asa Jackson on a four-year contract.

Baltimore is deep at cornerback with Lardarius Webb, Jimmy Smith, and Cary Williams. Jackson's biggest contribution will come on special teams, where he's expected to compete for both kickoff and punt-return duties. Jackson averaged 14.7 yards on punt returns and 25.1 yards on kickoffs at Cal Poly.
Tue, May 8, 2012 05:10:00 PM

Ravens selected Cal Poly CB Asa Jackson with the No. 169 overall pick in the 2012 NFL draft.

Jackson played plenty of off zone coverage in college and lacks a real physical nature to fight through blocks on the edge when facing the run. He has some wasted movements in coverage but has a great vertical and ball skills to make interceptions. Perhaps most of all, Jackson is a solid special teams returner with break away speed and plays to his timed 4.49 forty. He offers potential in the slot.
