Tony Jefferson wasn't drafted.
But the bottom line is, the Big 12's second-leading tackler last season signed with Arizona. Jefferson faced long odds to make the roster but recorded two interceptions last week against Dallas, a performance that has him on the Cardinals' radar.
“I played fast, how I can play,” Jefferson said in a telephone interview with The Oklahoman. “It showed coaches they can trust me a little bit. I feel that game will help.”
Arizona head coach Bruce Arians said earlier this week that Jefferson's recent performance gives the San Diego area product an opportunity to make the practice squad.
Jefferson has a higher goal.
“I want to make the team,” Jefferson said. “My focus is to go out and show them the potential I have and continue to make plays. After that, it's up to the coaches.” (The Oklahoman)
