Wright, 29, is a former first-round pick of the Titans back in 2012. He played out his four-year, $8.218 million contract with the Titans before they elected to pick up his fifth-year option back in May of 2015.

Wright spent the 2017 season with the Bears before joining the Vikings the following years. Unfortunately, the Vikings released Wright coming out of the preseason and he was on and off of the Cardinals’ roster last year. 

In 2017, Wright appeared in all 16 games for the Bears and caught 59 passes for 614 yards receiving and one touchdown. Pro Football Focus has him rated as the No. 40 receiver out of 116 qualifying players.

Darboh, 25, is a former third-round pick of the Seahawks back in 2017. He was entering the third year of his four-year, $3.175 million contract when the Seahawks waived him coming out of the preseason last year.

The Patriots later claimed Darboh off of waivers. However, he lasted just a week in New England before he was waived with a failed physical designation.

Darboh’s contract was reinstated with Seattle and he reverted to their injured reserve. The Seahawks once again placed him on waivers last week. 

In 2017, Darboh appeared in all 16 games for the Seahawks and caught eight passes for 71 yards receiving and no touchdowns.

Jackson, 21, originally signed on with the Bills as an undrafted free agent out of Buffalo back in May. He was among the Bills’ final roster cuts coming out of the preseason. 

During his four-year college career at Buffalo, Jackson recorded 533 completions on 955 pass attempts (55.8 percent) for 6,999 yards, 49 touchdowns, and 24 interceptions to go along with 201 rushing attempts for 757 yards (3.8 YPC) and 16 touchdowns.
