Auld Lang Syne
Should auld acquaintance be forgot and never brought to mind? Should auld acquaintance be forgot and days of auld lang syne? – Lyrics to Auld Lang Syne, unknown
For the sake of old times, the LA Rams should sign former wide receiver Trishton Jackson off the practice squad of the Minnesota Vikings. After all, the young man signed with the Vikings after he realized that he was destined to start the 2021 NFL season on the practice squad. After spending a season red-shirted on the Rams 53-man roster in his rookie season, he decided to take his chances elsewhere.
Now, it makes complete sense for the Rams to reacquire the promising young receiver. He knows the LA Rams offense, coaches, and players. He was on the Rams roster a year ago, so he is already very familiar with the Rams offensive plays, playbook, and strategy. Now, he can rejoin the team in a role that could very likely lead to playing time in this offense.
As an added bonus, his time with the Minnesota Vikings is ideal for the Rams, as the team will face the Vikings in the near future. In fact, he could even help the team advance scout the Baltimore Ravens as well, a team that the Rams will face in January 2022.
Jackson may simply make the most sense, as he is quite familiar with the Rams, yet possesses enough talent and potential to be worth developing as a player on the roster. At 6-foot-1 and 191-pounds, yet running a 4.50-second 40-yard dash, Jackson first caught the Rams’ attention in 2020 because he is blessed with speed and solid route running. The Rams need what Trishton Jackson has, let’s hope that the team gives him a chance to showcase what he can do.
