by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Ravens signed Jackson on Tuesday.

The state of the Ravens' secondary means Jackson has a good shot to at least contribute on special teams Sunday against the Seahawks.

Giants' Bennett Jackson making transition to safety
by Shawn Krest |

Giants second-year cornerback Bennett Jackson is spending the offseason transitioning to safety. 

"At the end of the day, I’m a DB,’" Jackson said, per the New York Post. "I think my strengths are cover skills, I got good speed and I got good ball skills. The thing it’s gonna take for me to get out there and make an impact is, I just got to learn the defense and really just communicate the calls fluently."

"It is all in front of him," coach Tom Coughlin said. "We think he can cover. He has done a good job of getting us lined up and then we will see how he plays."
