Jackson was recently released by the Titans, a move that cleared up $10.2 million in cap space for the team. The 5-foot-11-inch cornerback battled a knee injury for the majority of the 2020 season, as he only saw the field in Tennessee’s final three regular season games plus an additional playoff game against the Baltimore Ravens.

Prior to last season, Jackson had spent three years with the Titans and proved to be an impactful starter from day one. In his rookie season, the young defensive back out of USC made 16 starts and tallied 70 tackles and 17 pass deflections, as well as earning a PFF grade of 75.1.

Year two was more of the same for Jackson, as he posted similar numbers with 73 tackles and 10 pass deflections. This season, however, he was able to pick off two passes and recover two fumbles to generate four turnovers for Tennessee. His PFF grade was also still in the 70s, more specifically, a 73.0.

Another layer of Jackson’s game is his ability to return kicks if necessary. His rookie season he logged 34 punt and 25 kick returns, with his longest being a 57 yard scamper in week 16 against the Los Angeles Rams. As his career has gone on, his returns have become less and less frequent, but the talent and explosiveness likely still lies within him.

Before being selected 17th overall in the 2017 NFL Draft, Jackson was making plays in southern California for USC. Over 39 collegiate games, he was able to register 139 tackles and 6 interceptions, including one he took for a touchdown in his sophomore season.

Jackson has proved throughout his collegiate and professional career that he is a dependable, athletic cornerback that a team can count on to bring solid coverage in the secondary.
