Texans' Kareem Jackson: Seals win with pick
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jackson recorded three tackles, one for a loss, three passes defensed and an interception in Sunday's 20-13 win over the Bills.

Jackson's interception, his second in as many weeks, sealed the deal with 35 seconds left and the Bills desperate for a touchdown. The 30-year-old Jackson has come up big for the Texans this season, sliding between safety and cornerback while setting a career-best tackle pace thus far. He's averaging nearly six stops per game (35 in six games), threatening his previous best set last season when he had 73 in 16 games (4.6 per game).

Texans' Kareem Jackson: Interception in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jackson recorded five tackles (all solo_, two passes defensed and an interception across 62 defensive snaps in Sunday's win over the Cowboys.

Jackson was gifted an interception after Tavon Austin had a ball bounce out of his hands late in the second quarter. It marks Jackson's 15th pick as a Texan, making the 30-year-old the team's all-time leader in interceptions.

Texans' Kareem Jackson: Moves to cornerback
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jackson was shifted to cornerback for Week 2 and had six tackles in Sunday's 20-17 loss to Tennessee, Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle reports.

Jackson had a successful debut at safety last week, but with Kevin Johnson sidelined by a concussion, they moved Jackson back to his old position. Always known for his support in defending the run, Jackson is second on the team with 14 tackles over the first two weeks.

Texans' Kareem Jackson: Sets up touchdown
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jackson had an interception in Saturday's preseason loss to the Rams.

The cornerback-turned-safety looked like he'd been playing the position his entire career. On his interception, Jackson monitored quarterback Sean Mannion as he went through his progressions, then jumped the crossing route and returned the ball to the Rams' 3-yard line. One play later, Alfred Blue found the end zone to give Houston a first-quarter lead. The position switch to safety, where responsibilities are different than at cornerback, could lead to more interceptions for Jackson who has just two over the last 30 games.

Texans' Kareem Jackson: Handling transition to safety
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jackson has improved his technique at safety as he gets more reps at the position, Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle reports.

Texans secondary coach Anthony Midget described Jackson as "instinctive" and "physical," qualities that will aid in his transition from defensive back to safety. "He's a guy that has played the position for us in the past when we needed to, so now he's concentrating on it and the more practice reps he gets at it, he'll just continue to get better," said the coach. Jackson recorded 73 tackles, one sack and one forced fumble in 16 games (14 starts) last season. He's entering the final year of a four-year contract and could be in line for a new contract if the position move works out.
