CB - NE
Patriots corner J.C. Jackson has officially signed his second round tender, meaning no offer sheet. However, teams can still offer picks to create a trade.
It will be interesting to see how this situation with Jackson and the Patriots unfolds. Rapoport compared this to the situation that unfolded with Malcom Butler and the Patriots a few years ago. Keep an eye on trade rumors with Jackson involved.
Per Ian Rapoport of NFL Network, the Patriots have placed a second round tender on CB J.C. Jackson.
By placing a second round tender on Jackson, the 25-year old CB would make $3.38M if he were to stay with the Patriots. Jackson is an emerging star for New England as he finished 2020 with nine interceptions and two fumbles, which was a takeaway record for any player under Bill Belichick. If any other team were to sign Jackson to an offer sheet the Patriots would have the ability to match.
