1. What does the future hold for Adoree' Jackson?

Speaking of Jackson, he is currently entering the final year of the three-year, $39 million deal he signed with the Giants before the 2021 season.

Jackson has been the Giants best corner since being signed as a free agent. He did miss seven games for them last season due to injuries and his absence was felt during that time when he was out and the Giants were spread very thin when it came to their corner position.

Jackson was one of several players many felt would be a possible extension candidate when the offseason began since he currently owns a $19 million cap hit, but the Giants have not done anything with his contract and have left it as is.

Whether the Giants do anything with Jackson's contract in the summer or not remains to be seen since they are near the bottom of the league for teams with cap space. The Giants could always decide to let Jackson play out his deal and figure it out with him after the season. Or, the Giants could decide to simply let him play out his deal and let him walk in free agency.
