3 potential trade scenarios for New England Patriots star CB J.C. Jackson
Feb. 29, 2024 – 01:37 – An undrafted free agent of the New England Patriots back in 2018, cornerback J.C. Jackson jumped on to the scene as a third-year player for the team this past season. The Maryland product recorded 40 tackles, 14 passes defended and an eye-opening nine interceptions.
Pro Football Focus metrics note that the 25-year-old Jackson has allowed a mere 51.5% completion mark since joining the Patriots in 2018. As an undrafted free agent, Jackson hit the open market as a restricted free agent this past March. In turn, New England handed him a second-round tenure that the former Terp star almost immediately signed.
Even then, there’s no guarantee that Jackson will be on the Patriots’ roster in 2021. According to NFL Media’s Ian Rapoport, the Pats are potentially looking to move him ahead of or during the coming 2021 NFL Draft. Here’s a look at three potential trade scenarios.
