Count me among the many of people who had written off Austin Jackson and I am so sorry that I was wrong about the offensive tackle. Up to this point, Jackson had not lived up to the expectations of being a first round selection and prior to this season, the Miami Dolphins did not exercise Jackson’s fifth-year option. But everything has come together for Jackson this year as he is playing like a Pro-Bowler and for that effort, the Dolphins rewarded him with a 3-year contract extension. Kudos to Jackson for silencing the doubters and being rewarded for his remarkable turnaround this season.

You can check out that story here, and the rest of the day’s round-up below.
