Panthers’ Donte Jackson unhappy with portrayal in ‘All or Nothing’

Donte Jackson

Rising sophomore cornerback Donte Jackson of the Carolina Panthers is not feeling how he was portrayed on Amazon’s sports docuseries “All or Nothing,” which captured behind the scenes footage of the Panthers’ season.

In the series, a Week 10 matchup with Antonio Brown and the Pittsburgh Steelers saw the then-rookie cornerback Jackson heated over his bouts with the wide receiver Brown.

Jackson took to Twitter to clear the record on who he is:

In the footage, Jackson blew up on teammates and coaches due to being “tired of losing” and “All or Nothing” captured his emotional state.

The Panthers selected Jackson from LSU in the second round of the 2018 NFL Draft. In his introductory professional season, Jackson recorded 74 total tackles, four tackles for loss, and four interceptions in 16 games. Carolina finished the season 7-9, however, and outside the playoff picture.

Panthers veterans like Mike Adams, Captain Munnerlyn, and Eric Reid sat down with Jackson to explain his behavior, per 247Sports:

“I understand you gonna be good and you all that,” Adams tells Jackson. “But we – us three – we gonna sit you down and be like ‘Nah, you ain’t that good.’ Until you shut some [expletive] down, nah, bro! And we here to see you dominate. What I told you: That No. 2 receiver shouldn’t eat [expletive]. Now you got a No. 1.”

Jackson and the Panthers enter the 2019 season with high expectations under head coach Ron Rivera.

Jackson must buy into the team and minimize blow-ups in order to focus his energy and defensive effort on the field and get Carolina back in the postseason.
