Josh Jackson was shipped to the New York Giants for Isaac Yiadom in a swap of cornerbacks with the Green Bay Packers on Tuesday.

Jackson, 25, was a second-round pick in 2018 but some teams evaluated him as a safety coming out of Iowa due to average straight-line speed. He was considered to be on the bubble to make the 53-man roster in Green Bay.

Yiadom, also 25, joins his third team in four seasons. The 2018 third-round pick started 10 games with the Giants last season after spending the first two years of his career with the Denver Broncos.

The swap follows another move made by the Giants on Monday to bolster their secondary, acquiring cornerback Keion Crossen in a trade with the Houston Texans.
