Broncos' Kareem Jackson: Lines up at safety
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jackson lined up exclusively at safety during minicamp, Zac Stevens of BSNDenver reports.

If you listen to head coach Vic Fangio's full interview, there is some additional context here -- that safety is harder to learn than corner in his defense and so he wanted Jackson to get his initial reps there. Still, the fact that he lined up exclusively at safety at camp signals, at the very least, that he won't be plugged in on the outside and left to fend off opponent's top vertical threat. Instead -- with Chris Harris, Jr. and Bryce Callahan similarly able to move inside and out -- it is more likely that Fangio will move the three around based on the opponent. Given his familiarity with playing safety in Houston, it might very well be the case that Jackson plays safety on a base down only to move all the way out wide on the next play if the opponent spreads it out. Look for Jackson to thus have the opportunity to tally more tackles than the typical corner while also not missing out on too many opportunities to play the ball in passing situations.

Broncos' Kareem Jackson: Figures to operate in hybrid role
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jackson has experience at both corner and safety and could occupy both roles in Denver's defense, Troy Renck of The Denver Channel reports.

Shortly after Jackson's introductory press conference, the Broncos signed Bryce Callahan, who played the nickel in Vic Fangio's scheme in Chicago last season. That may push Jackson outside more often than not. It also creates an interesting dynamic in Denver with three smaller corners -- Jackson, Callahan, and Chris Harris, Jr. -- who all have a lot of experience in the slot. Expect Fangio to mix things up and find ways for Jackson to play around the line of scrimmage, where he has excelled as a tackler over his career.

Texans' Kareem Jackson: Commits to join Broncos
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Broncos have agreed to sign Jackson to a three-year contract, Mike Klis of 9News Denver reports.

A first-round selection of the Texans in 2010, Jackson will move on from the only organization he's ever known. The defensive back has positional versatility, having played both cornerback and strong safety in his career. Considering the Broncos released their previous starting strong safety (Darian Stewart) last week, Jackson may take over that spot in the starting lineup. However, this transaction also may be insurance in the event cornerback Bradley Roby moves on as an unrestricted free agent.

Texans' Kareem Jackson: Heads into offseason as UFA
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jackson recorded four tackles in Saturday's 21-7 wild-card round loss to the Colts.

Jackson had his highest snap count since 2012 and recorded a career-high 87 tackles during the regular season. He was moved from cornerback to safety to start the year but played both positions due to injuries. He enters the offseason as an unrestricted free agent, one that the Texans will attempt to bring back. He'll turn 31 in April and showed there's still plenty in the tank.

Texans' Kareem Jackson: Ready for Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jackson (knee) doesn't have an injury designation for Sunday's game against Jacksonville.

Jackson has nursed knee issues throughout December but was able to return as a full practice participant Friday. The 30-year-old should serve his usual starting role at cornerback for the Texans this week.
