Raiders TE Darren Waller is a “Dominant Player”, but the Patriots “have something going for him this weekend”
Darren waller is one of the most unique tight ends in the NFL.
The 6 feet 6 inches Raider sprinted 4.46-40 yards at the NFL Combine in 2015, and he turned on the Saints for 12 catches, 103 yards and a touchdown last week on Monday Night Football.
“I mean, he can play anything”, JC Jackson noted. “Like they say, he’s a catcher, that’s not (that) he’s a tight end. He’s just an athlete, all around if you ask me. He can do anything. He has the body. He has the hands, he has the He is a dominant football player.
That said, Jackson does think the Patriots have something up their sleeve.
“I mean, the guy is good, man,” Jackson said. “That’s all I have to say about him. He’s good and we’ve got something for him this weekend.”
The third-year cornerback suffered a two-week whirlwind on a personal level. Jackson became a father for the second time, as his daughter, Journey, was born after New England’s season opener win over the Dolphins.
“It’s a big blessing for me this year outside of football,” Jackson said.
Life with a newborn baby can be tough for a game-planning NFL player like Waller, but Jackson managed to make it work.
“I mean, as a father, as a father, as a man, you have to do what you have to do,” Jackson said. “I have to do what I have to do. I’m not sure what to say about this. Like I said, I’m just going to do what I have to do. I try to be a good dad when I’m at home and a good teammate when I’m – like, I hold onto what I’m doing here, try to keep it at home. Like having the same energy as me on the pitch and with my teammates at home with my family.
It was a life changing experience.
“It really motivated me, man,” Jackson said. “Like, I just wanna go and do it right. Just be awesome. I just wanna be awesome now.
