Head coach Sean McVay recently talked about Jackson, praising his physical ability and potential contributions to the offense.

“He’s does,” McVay told reporters on Thursday via Pro Football Talk. “It’s unbelievable. I mean, this guy, he’s a freak. For him to be able to sustain that level of speed. I mean, even when you just look at some of the data, it shows even last year after he came back from the ankle injury, one of the fastest speeds when he catches the long touchdown against the Cowboys late in the year, I want to say it was a couple days after Christmas. He’s a special player. I’ve really enjoyed being back with him again. He definitely looks like the same DeSean that I’ve seen.”

Jackson possesses the opportunity to fill a crucial role in the passing game. He can quickly become the team’s primary deep-ball threat behind his big-play ability. His struggles with injuries have prevented him from showcasing that talent over the last couple of years. Jackson could excel in that area due to Stafford’s strong arm.

The pairing may become a staple in the Rams’ offense that has an opportunity to be one of the best units in the league. It’s created a tremendous level of expectations ahead of Los Angeles in what may be a special 2021 campaign.
