The Winnipeg Blue Bombers have signed American receiver Lucky Jackson.

The six-foot-one, 190-pound target spent four seasons at Western Kentucky, becoming one of the best wideouts in school history. He recorded 94 receptions for 1,133 yards and four touchdowns in his senior season and was named the MVP of the First Responder Bowl after a 17-catch performance.

He finished his collegiate career with 209 catches for 2,680 yards and 13 touchdowns with the Hilltoppers before going unselected in the 2020 NFL Draft.

Jackson ran an unofficial 4.36 forty-yard dash at his pro day in March 2020, showing serious straight-line speed.
