3. Adoree’ Jackson
Jackson was billed as a No. 1 starting cornerback in the NFL, which was the case earlier in his career with the Tennessee Titans and the first two years with the Giants.
However, things didn’t go well for the veteran cornerback this season, who is set to become an unrestricted free agent in March. Opposing quarterbacks didn’t fear throwing the ball toward the vet, who was a liability in pass coverage at times.
The 5-foot-11 cornerback had 63 combined tackles, eight pass deflections, and an interception. He also had a 65.9 completion percentage allowed on targets and a 95.5 pass rating allowed when targeted (second-highest in his career), but only gave up two receiving touchdowns.
It wasn’t an overly spectacular season by Jackson. But he might’ve done enough to convince the Giants’ front office to bring him back.
However, at 28 years old, Jackson might only have a couple of good seasons left before the dropoff happens. The Giants might be better off going with a youth movement at cornerback after drafting Deonte Banks in the first round of the 2023 NFL Draft.
