Janzen Jackson is not the brightest kid in football, but when it comes to talent he has a tons of it. Many might remember Jackson from his years at Tennessee in one of the best defensive backfields in college football, before leaving for McNeese State.  When he transferred to McNeese State, many believed he would be the ultimate starter, but he never really could unseat Malcolm Bronson as the starter at McNeese.

Today the NFL suspended the free agent Jackson who was on the Giants roster earlier this season. The undrafted rookie out of McNeese State was abruptly cut by the Giants early on in camp. Jackson was on a zero tolerance policy after getting booted off the Tennessee football team in August of 2011. It can’t get much better for the ex-Tennessee standout.
