Former Texans DB Kareem Jackson has agreed to a 3-year deal with the Broncos. ESPN's Adam Schefter reports it'll pay out $33 million, with $23 million of that guaranteed. Jackson spent time at both CB and safety with the Texans, primarily lining up at corner. He finished 2018 as the #14 graded CB by Pro Football Focus, garnering his best PFF grade since 2014. We'll see where Jackson lands in Denver's defense, heading into his age-31 season.
Texans CB Kareem Jackson left Sunday's loss to the Eagles early with a knee injury and did not return despite lobbying coaches to let him back into the game, according to the Houston Chronicle. HC Bill O'Brien said Monday, though, that he thinks Jackson will be able to return for next Sunday's clash with Jacksonville. We'll keep an eye on his status heading into the weekend.
The Texans agreed Saturday to a new 4-year deal with CB Kareem Jackson, keeping him from reaching free agency. The 26-year-old reportedly got $20 million guaranteed on a 4-year, $34 million deal. Jackson's no shutdown corner but has spent nearly all of his 5 seasons in Houston as a starter and showed steady improvement. He also has yet to finish a season among the top 50 fantasy DBs.
