The New York Giants made their second big move in three days when they agreed on terms with former Tennessee Titans cornerback Adoree ‘Jackson, according to sources.
The deal is for three years and $ 39 million, sources told ESPN’s Adam Schefter, and includes $ 26.5 million in guarantees and more than $ 20 million fully guaranteed.
The Giants also signed catcher Kenny Golladay to a four-year, $ 72 million deal over the weekend.
Jackson, 25, was recently released by the Titans. He was in high demand with the Philadelphia Eagles in the mix until the final moments, according to a source. Jackson was scheduled to visit the Eagles after the Giants on Monday.
New York now adds Jackson to a defense that already had Pro Bowl cornerback James Bradberry on the side. The hope is that the speedy Jackson will be the ideal complement to the longer, more physical Bradberry.
Jackson also brings versatility with the ability to play the slot and serve as a returner.
The Titans selected Jackson 18th overall in the 2017 draft. Tennessee had chosen his fifth-year option last year, but released him last Tuesday, a day before his $ 10.244 million salary for the season. 2021 was fully guaranteed with the start of the new league year.
He started 41 of 46 games with Tennessee, but a knee injury just before the start of last season limited him to three games in 2020.
