Having watched Jackson since he was rookie, I might be most impressed with how he's grown into the leader of this team. Not only is he the team's most recognizable player, he's now their voice.
In other news from today's practice, Mark Clayton was on the field working in Donnie Avery's old spot. Getting Clayton was a smart, low-cost move to give the team a capable wide receiver, with a good track record for staying healthy. Hopefully, what they lost in Avery's speed they can make up for with Clayton's route running. He's going to have to work on those hands though.
SS James Butler practiced today. And a full injury report will be released later this afternoon.
