According to the Kansas City Star, Chiefs head coach Andy Reid has been very impressed with how well defensive lineman Tyson Jackson is picking up their new defense. “I’m very impressed with Tyson,” said Reid. “I’ve been impressed since we’ve been together here. Not many guys are going to outwork him on the field. Pass rush was not his forte, but he’s working like crazy to get better. As a coach, that’s all you can ask for. He’s a big man who can move a little bit.” Jackson had a rough start to his career after switching from a 4-3 in college to a 3-4 in the NFL.  The good news is that he’s picking up the Chiefs new 3-4 defense. “It’s football, and it’s never the same,” Jackson said. “With new coaches coming in, they’re bringing their own system in. There are a lot of moving parts, and there’s a learning curve you have to go through and learn what they’re trying to teach you. “We’re doing a whole lot of moving. We’ll be flip-flopping from right side to left side. It’s our job to understand what they’re asking of us, what our gap responsibilities are on each play. You would be amazed how just walking through plays will help you get things down pat, where you should be on each play … on what blitz you need to pick what hole …” Need NFL Tickets?
