Paul Kuharsky is reporting that the Titans have picked up the 5th year option on Adoree Jackson. This comes as no surprise as he has been really productive and his option is significantly cheaper than that of Corey Davis (who they declined earlier today). Mike broke down both decisions in a fantastic post earlier. As always, he was right on the money with his prediction.
From Mike’s post:
He’s coming off a season where he graded out as PFF’s 8th best cornerback in the league and carried the 5th best coverage grade among corners with at least 700 defensive snaps. Even if you don’t buy into PFF grades, it’s not hard to see the impact that Jackson had on the Titans defense last year. When he was in the starting lineup, Tennessee allowed just 19.6 points per game. When he was out with a foot injury late in the year, they allowed 24.3 points per game, and one of those matchups came against a resting Texans squad with A.J. McCarron at the helm.
I am excited to see the corner group this year that includes Adoree, Malcolm Butler and 2nd-round pick Kristian Fulton.
