With last year’s trade of Aqib Talib and this year’s loss of former first-round pick Bradley Roby, it’s become abundantly clear that the No Fly Zone is in need of some new crew members.
The first move the Broncos made in the free agent negotiating window was to sign a former first-round pick of the Houston Texans — Kareem Jackson — to a three-year contract.
Though Jackson is a cornerback by trade, the coaching staff loves his versatility and believes he can play any number of positions on a given week to help the team match up against whatever weapons they are facing.
Does this mean we’ll see Jackson as the Broncos’ primary matchup player going forward?
It doesn’t seem like he will be limited to playing outside corner, that’s for sure.
Even though he won’t be limited there, he is a phenomenal cornerback and has been for a long time in the NFL.
Jackson is as physical as they come and brings some of that edge back to Denver’s secondary.
