Denver Broncos potential surprise cut at safety: Kareem Jackson

The Denver Broncos gave Kareem Jackson $2 million guaranteed to return to the Mile High City for another season in 2022.

That would be a tough pill to swallow come time for roster cuts if they decide that they are going to go a different direction at the position.

One of the latest bits of news coming out of OTAs is that PJ Locke has done very well in Kareem Jackson’s place, even if it’s early on in the offseason program.

The Broncos have drafted three players at the safety position in the first two years George Paton has been on the job at general manager.

Caden Sterns had a really good rookie season working in the dime. It makes sense the team would be trying to get him more playing time this year, not less.

We don’t know what Jamar Johnson is going to bring to the table this season after essentially redshirting his rookie year.

Delarrin Turner-Yell was one of the team’s fifth-round picks this year and the coaches obviously like him quite a bit.

Something’s got to give at the safety position and the team can’t make long-term sacrifices if they believe in the players at the position.

Maybe a player like Jamar Johnson is a more likely cut candidate at the safety position but what happens if all of the young guys ball out?

The Broncos might save the additional potential cash Kareem Jackson could earn this year and move forward with the young guns.
