2. CB Adoree’ Jackson
When healthy, cornerback Adoree’ Jackson has been the leader of the Giants secondary. Since his arrival in 2021, he has been arguably the most productive member of the group. But that has only been the case when he has remained healthy. And unfortunately for this Giants defense, he has at times struggled to stay on the field.
Over the past two seasons, Jackson played in 23 total games. During the 2021 campaign, he missed four games, and in 2022, he missed seven. In his absence, the Giants secondary struggled. When playing, he has been highly productive. With just one year remaining on his contract, the Giants could look to move on now. By releasing Jackson, they’d be freeing up nearly $9 million in space.
For a team with several needs to still address, and a draft class full of talent in the secondary, this could be the sort of move that they need to make. They could immediately address the position.
