Dane Jackson

The Buffalo Bills drafted Dane Jackson in the seventh round of the 2019 NFL Draft and over his career he primarily was a backup. However, he would start a number of games during that period due to injuries to players ahead of him.

In total he would play in 52 games and start 28 games, 20 of which were in the last two seasons, with three interceptions and 28 passes defended. However, this past season was his worst in terms of QB rating allowed at 109.6.

Dane Jackson can be an important part of the secondary as that experienced backup who can start if needed. However, based on the contract he received from the Carolina Panthers of two years and worth up to $14.5 million, it would appear they believe he can be a full-time starter. If that is the case, it will be unlikely that he can play up to the level of his new deal.
