CB - NYG
This Week Outlook
Per Giants beat writer Pat Leonard, CB Adoree' Jackson (quad) has also tested positive for COVID-19 and will not play Sunday vs the Cowboys.
Jackson had already been dealing with a quad injury so the fact that he has been declared out for Sunday isn't shocking. More so than anything this might be an indication to keep an eye out for other possible COVID-19 cases for the Giants as they get ready to play the Cowboys on Sunday.
Per Adam Schefter of ESPN, Former Titans’ CB Adoree Jackson reached an agreement today on a three-year, $39 million deal with the New York Giants
After being released before his fifth year, the Giants have signed Jackson to a strong three-year contract. The deal will pay the veteran $39 million through the lifespan of the contract but he will receive $16 million in year one, and $27 million just over two seasons. The Giants continue to add defensive help and get better through as they added star Lions receiver Kenny Golloday earlier in the week.
Current free-agent and former Tennesse Titans CB Adoree' Jackson is reportedly interested in visiting with both the New York Giants and potentially the Philadelphia Eagles afterward, per ESPN's Josina Anderson.
Jackson enters his fifth season as a free agent after being released by the Titans earlier in the offseason. He is reportedly interested in visiting with both the Giants and Eagles, two teams in the NFC East that have seen defensive back departures and could use help from the spry, sure-handed tackling of Jackson. After playing just three games in 2020 due to suffering a knee injury, Jackson would be an immediate upgrade to either team. He has impressive career totals of 200 tackles, 33 pass deflections, three forced fumbles, and two interceptions throughout his four years as a starter in Tennessee.
The Titans have released cornerback Adoree' Jackson. Releasing the former first-round pick creates $10.244 million in cap space for Tennessee.
Jackson, 25, appeared in 43 games from 2017 to 2019. However, his status took a hit in 2020 as a knee injury held him out until Week 15. Over 46 career games (41 starts), he has two interceptions, 33 passes defended, and 200 tackles. He also has some experience on special teams, returning 53 punts (464 yards) and 27 kickoffs (601 yards) in his first three years as a pro.
Tennessee Titans cornerback Adoree' Jackson will miss Wednesday's practice due to a knee injury.
Jackson was active for Week 12 but did not play a snap for the Titans. He is still working his way back from injury and may be eased back into his number one corner roe. His participation level over the next two days should give us a better indication regarding his potential Week 13 role.
