Jackson signed with the Cardinals in July, but he finds himself among the first wave of cuts ahead of Tuesday's 53-man roster deadline. The 2018 second-round pick spent his first three seasons in the NFL with Green Bay before appearing in just two contests with Kansas City last year.

  • Giants' Josh Jackson: Traded to Giants

    Jackson was traded to the Giants from the Packers on Tuesday in exchange for cornerback Isaac Yiadom, Rob Demovsky of ESPN.com reports. Jackson, a third-year cornerback, was a second-round draft pick for the Packers in 2018, but he saw his most defensive snaps in his rookie season. Since then, he has split time between defense and special teams, as he recorded 26 tackles (11 solo) and two passes defensed in 12 games last season.

  • Packers' Josh Jackson: Clears concussion protocol

    Jackson (concussion) has cleared the league's concussion protocol and will play in Sunday's game versus the Eagles, Wes Hodkiewicz of the Packers' official site reports. Meanwhile, Jaire Alexander, Kevin King and Chandon Sullivan are all healthy for Week 13, so Jackson likely will stick to special teams. The third-year cornerback out of Iowa has been a dependable backup tasked with being ready to contribute when any of the starting three suffers an injury.

  • Packers' Josh Jackson: Fills in Monday

    Jackson recorded two solo tackles in Monday's 30-16 win over the Falcons. Chandon Sullivan (concussion) exited after just three snaps, and Kevin King (quadriceps) left early as well, so Jackson took over at outside cornerback and logged 28 of 70 defensive snaps (40 percent). The 2018 second-round pick has struggled to get his footing in the NFL, and he could drop back to a reserve role following the Week 5 bye if King and Sullivan are cleared to play.

  • Packers' Josh Jackson: Plays every game as rookie

    Jackson played all 16 games in his rookie season and tallied 49 tackles (39 solo), 10 pass deflections and no interceptions. Jackson started 10 games for the Packers but his performance was rather inconsistent. He should play a key role again in his second season, though he'll head into the offseason no higher than the No. 3 corner on the depth chart, assuming both Jaire Alexander (groin) and Kevin King (hamstring) are healthy for the start of OTAs.

  • Packers' Josh Jackson: Big impact in preseason game

    Jackson had one solo tackle, returned an interception for a touchdown, and added a 41-yard punt return in Thursday's preseason game against the Steelers. Jackson showed the playmaking ability that made him a second-round pick in April's draft. He figures to open as the Packers' fourth or fifth cornerback, but he'll have a chance to make an impact in his rookie season.
