NFL: Preseason-Dallas Cowboys at Los Angeles Rams Jayne Kamin-Oncea-USA TODAY Sports

Darius Jackson was reunited with the Dallas Cowboys this week. Yes, really.

It must be quite the story for Darius to return to the team that drafted him just two years ago. There’s a lot to the story, and to get the skinny on it we went straight to the source.

Darius joined a special podcast-only edition of BTB’s OchoLive to discuss his return, status, faith, and much more. Give it a listen below.

Among all the things Darius discussed, some of the highlights include:

  • What his life has been like since being released by the Cowboys in December of 2016
  • How he realized the experience was a blessing and what he was able to make of it
  • That the Cowboys were not the first team he worked out for after Cleveland released him
  • The bonds that the 2016 draft class share with one another
  • Exactly how much it means to him to return to the Cowboys and this fanbase

It’s been big week for interviews on BTB’s OchoLive. On Tuesday I spoke with Shannon Furman of NFL Films, one of the four directors on “All or Nothing”, to discuss everything behind-the-scenes that went into following the Cowboys all last season. You can listen to that episode right here.
