There is now word of that compensation and it has turned out to be a cornerback-for-cornerback swap between the two teams. Rob Demovsky of ESPN.com reports that the Packers are sending Josh Jackson to the NFC East club.
Jackson was a 2018 second-round pick in Green Bay who started 10 games as a rookie, but has started just five of the 26 games he’s played for the last two seasons. He was listed as a third-stringer behind Kevin King on the team’s most recent depth chart.
Jackson has 86 tackles and a fumble recovery in 42 career appearances.
