Iloka, 29, is a former fifth-round pick of the Bengals back in 2012. He was in the third year of his five-year, $30 million contract that includes $5 million guaranteed when the Bengals elected to cut him loose during the 2018 preseason. 

The Vikings later signed Iloka to a one-year contract worth the veteran minimum of $790,000. Iloka signed on with the Cowboys this past March.

In 2018, Iloka appeared in all 16 games for the Vikings and recorded 16 tackles, no interceptions, and a forced fumble.

Jackson, 25, was selected in the sixth round of the 2016 draft by the Cowboys. Dallas waived Jackson towards the end of the 2016 season and he was later claimed off waivers by the Browns.

The Cowboys signed Jackson to a contract in May, but elected to cut him loose as they trimmed their roster down to 53 players. Jackson was signed off of the Cowboys’ practice squad by the Packers, but he lasted just a few weeks in Green Bay before returning to Dallas.

In 2018, Jackson appeared in four games for the Packers and Cowboys, carrying the ball six times for 16 yards.
