The Denver Broncos have added a key need to their team by addressing the cornerback position with Kareem Jackson signing to play in the Mile High City.
A little over nine hours into the tampering stages of free agency finally sees the Denver Broncos agreeing to terms with a player outside of the organization. Houston Texans cornerback Kareem Jackson has agreed to terms to play for the Denver Broncos.
According to Ian Rapoport, the deal is for three years at $33 million dollars with $23 million of it guaranteed. Not a bad deal for one of the biggest free agent corners out there. But the biggest factor in all of this is that the Denver Broncos was able to take care of a huge need on defense.
With the departure of Aqib Talib, the Broncos have been missing a player that can compliment Chris Harris Jr. on the other side of the field. Kareem Jackson is that player that can do that. One of his biggest traits is that he can tackle, and can tackle like a smash mouth football player.
His ability to play all over the field can really come in handy when it comes to designing different defensive packages. And did I mention his speed? He is incredibly fast, which can help close in on a receiver trying to catch the ball.
This is a smart move by John Elway without any doubt. The cornerback position gets addressed with a player who can make huge plays on the field at any given moment.
I do not believe the Denver Broncos will be done at the cornerback position just yet. But it could eliminate the possibility that Denver drafts a cornerback. It will highly depend on their slot corner position.
Either way, this is a move that should excite the members of Broncos Country. In what is likely the biggest need for the team was focused on right away with Kareem Jackson as the newest member of the Denver Broncos.
