It's time for the Texans to discontinue the practice of handing young players jobs they have not earned. Kareem Jackson has yet to earn a job as a Houston Texan.
FYI, this is what Kubiak said at the combine:
(on what’s been said to cornerback Kareem Jackson this offseason) “I think he’s going to be a great player. I really do
. We drafted him. We put him in a tough spot. As a player, we start him from day one. We know he went through some tough times. The whole back end went through some tough times. To be a great player in this league, I think you have to go through some of that. The thing that I’m impressed with Kareem is through last year he never missed a day. Never missed a practice. Never missed a game. When you’re able to withstand that type of stuff, you’re able to go through tough times. The biggest bounce you usually make is from year one to two. I’m expecting him to do that.”
