Cornerback Adoree' Jackson had plans to visit the Eagles after meeting with the Giants, but he won’t be making it to Philadelphia.

Adam Schefter of ESPN reports that Jackson has agreed to a three-year deal with the team. The contract has a value of $39 million.

Jackson was released by the Titans earlier this month after he was limited to three games last season because of a knee injury. He had 200 tackles, two interceptions, three forced fumbles, two fumble recoveries, and 33 passes defensed while with Tennessee.

The Jackson signing is the second in three days for the Giants. They also added wide receiver Kenny Golladay on Saturday and both moves address areas of considerable need for a team that’s been to the playoffs once in the last decade.

  1. gettleman’s tenure as the blue new york team’s gm is on life support. hopefully these deals are somewhat cap friendly for when the new regime takes over.

  2. Reminds me of Giants 2005 off season when they got some combination of Plaxico, McKenzie, Pierce and others.

    They can’t afford Adoree Jackson without another move. Perhaps a Peppers extension being that he was a major recruiter in the 2 big acquisitions.

    Depending on how much money they free up, Carlos Dunlap and Trea Turner may be next.

    Jordan Ranaan is still batting 0000 for the off-season.

  3. I have never posted on here before. But why in the world are the giants paying Adoree Jackson 3 yrs 39 million? He has 2 career int. He never played as fast as advertised and basically laid out all of last year. No one else was going to pay him anything close to that this late in free agency. If you want a titans cut corner pay Malcolm Butler 5 million and get a football player.

  4. Adoree’ Jackson basically gave the Tennessee Titans depth production….certainly didn’t match where he was drafted. Makes Gettelman look desperate with all the money he just threw at this guy.

  5. Wow the Giants are really loading up! I can see the Giants winning the NFC east.

  6. Adoree Jackson is a rare talent who can change games in a single play. The best ability is availability, so he needs to stay on the field, but you can say that about anybody. You have to get lucky and keep everyone healthy if you want to win a super bowl, so at least The Giants are gathering the horses. I can’t blame a team for signing a blue chipper.

  7. Adoree Jackson, turn on his USC tape, then turn on the nfl tape. Giants fans you are not getting the USC Jackson. He cannot field a punt. He is not physical, has 2 picks in his career, watch titans packers tape from last year, football speed in pads not there, and you are paying him 13 million a year and where bidding against yourself for yet another player! Good luck!

  8. We have depth now at the corner position. We can sign a blue chipper in the draft like pitts or slater

  9. Haters are coming out in full force. Makes me feel better they’re on the right track.

    That’s only a little more than $ 1 million for each pass defensed.
    Hyper-inflation, just biden it’s time.

  11. The Titans’ biggest problem all 2020 was DB play. If Vrabel is releasing him, I’m sure as hell not signing him for much over the veteran minimum.
    Not to mention, the Peppers trade really didn’t net them anything more than middle f the road safety talent, if that. But it did clear cap room for awful contracts like this.

  12. There’s mixed opinions about him on here but Pro Football Focus is high on him. They had him graded as the 4th best coverage corner since 1998 when lined up outside,which is where the Giants will play him opposite Bradberry. 2 years ago they had him as the 9th highest rated CB in the league.

    Bradberry, Jackson, McKinney, Peppers, Ryan…the Giants have a very good secondary.

  13. People need to give it up for future NFL executive of the year Dave Gettleman. He got a big assist from salary cap maven Kevin Abrams for green lighting the necessary wheeling and dealing. Dallas, Philly, WFT all pale in comparison to the football Giants.

  14. Signing good players is always stupid and you always pay too much … unless it’s the team you root for. Then it’s brilliant.

  15. The cap hits after this year will be awful so either the cap needs to grow by 30 million next year or the giants will have a new Gm if they don’t win the division

  16. “Adoree Jackson, turn on his USC tape, then turn on the nfl tape. Giants fans you are not getting the USC Jackson….[W]atch titans packers tape from last year, football speed in pads not there”

    I’m sure you are a tape watching expert. Internet commenters who think that they can glean more than professional general managers and coaches from allegedly watching tape amuse me.

  17. “Wow the Giants are really loading up! I can see the Giants winning the NFC east.”

    hahahahahahahahahahaha, The NFC East

  18. Mysterious injury last year right before week 1. Stayed out most of the year. Played a few games at the end and was terrible.

    Was a good cover corner – mostly avoided – in his earlier years. Took the occasional unnecessary DPI, so didn’t play with football smarts.

    I was very excited about his as a returner. He was literally the worst NFL punt returner I have even seen. Could not ever decide whether to let it bounce or come up to catch it – always got it wrong. Muffed punts cost them at least one game. Had one return for TD that was called back – maybe another in preseason. Eventually, they had to get him off the field for returns, even though the Titans did not have a better option. Terrible special teams sense.

    I hope he is over his injury and is successful with NYG. Good guy, just was never a difference maker here. Thought he would be electric with the football – he played a little offense as a rookie – but coaches never trusted him.

  19. Just when the dust was settling from the from the worst FA signing in Golladay Gettleman said to himself hold my beer , switched hands and signed a legit contender to Golladay for the worst FA signing . Just another on the ever growing list of Gettleman’s Gaffes .

  20. Great signing for the Gmen. The Titans cut him, he then got a $39M raise. Let that sink in.
