Jackson, Doane, Randall Sign Free Agent Deals


Posted Apr 29, 2003


Three former Longhorn football players agreed to free agency contracts with NFL clubs Monday. LB Lee Jackson agreed to terms with the Tennessee Titans. Meanwhile, OTs Robbie Doane and Alfio Randall-Veasey both agreed to terms with the Green Bay Packers.

The trio joins with third-round draft picks DE Cory Redding (Detroit), OG Derrick Dockery (Washington) and Chris Simms (Tampa Bay) and fourth-round choice CB Rod Babers (New York Giants).

Jackson started 28 contests (16 at strong safety/12 at strongside linebacker) and registered 186 tackles, 18 TFLs and six sacks during his career. He capped his NCAA tenure by turning the tide in Texas’ 35-20 Cotton Bowl win over LSU when he recorded the first fumble return touchdown in Cotton Bowl history (46 yards) in a Tiger-dominated first-quarter. He also earned Texas' Community Service Award for football the past two years.

Doane played in 51 career games and started the final 26 contests of his career at left tackle. He was an honorable mention All-Big 12 selection in 2002 as well as a three-time Academic All-Big 12 selection. Doane also earned Texas' Lan Hewlett Academic Award for football the past two years.

Randall-Veasey served as a backup at both left and right tackle. He played in eight games as a senior and nine as a junior after transferring from Blinn Junior College (2001).
