Professional careerEdit

He attended East Stroudsburg High School South in East Stroudsburg, Pennsylvania before attending Virginia Tech.[1][2] Jarrett was drafted in the sixth round, 181th overall, by the Washington Redskins in the 2015 NFL Draft.[3][4] He signed a four-year contract on May 11, 2015.[5] During the regular season finale against the Dallas Cowboys, Jarret suffered severe damage to his brachial plexus during a helmet-to-helmet collision with running back Darren McFadden.[6][7] Unable to fully regain strength in his arm in the months following the injury, Jarret was waived by the team before the start of training camp in 2016.[8][9] In 2018, Jarret began a coaching internship with the Redskins, and was hired fulltime as a defensive quality control coach the following year.[7][10]
