When reports surfaced about the Giants trading cornerback Isaac Yiadom to the Packers on Tuesday, there was not any immediate word about what was going back to the Giants.

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.

  1. Brian Gutekunst: Not only are we NOT discussing Clay Matthews, we are actively making changes to the defensive side of the ball and NOT discussing Clay Matthews.

    Your move, Aaron.

  2. Either the giants wanted out of a salary or something else stinks in this deal. Jackson is a smallish, slowish, unable to cover corner that a high school team wouldnt want. So there has to be some other hiden item not mentioned in this deal, like the giants get the next first born on the GM or half the concessions on beer day?

  3. Jackson is slow and always has been. I wanted DJ Chark with that pick who has speed and had a great senior bowl. Go with the LSU WR with speed over the slow CB from Iowa.

    Yeah, no.

  5. I like the trade, but will miss Jacko. Hope a fresh start turns out to be positive for him.

    Looking forward to the joint practices starting tomorrow with the Jets.

    Let’s Go! Week 1 is 26 days away.

  6. Now both GMs won’t be forced to cut their underperforming corners. Instead they get to cut someone else’s mistake.

  7. I watched the first couple series for the packers game Saturday night. Jackson couldn’t cover anyone on the Texans team.
