Houston Texans “Danger Zone” player number two: J.C. Jackson
The Tennessee Titans were one of the worst teams in passing yards allowed last season. They ranked 25th in passing yards allowed, with over 4,500 yards through the air. While their pass rush improved, first-round draft pick, Caleb Farley hardly played and hopefully doesn’t have any injury issues this year.
The Titans got the AFC’s top seed and sacked Joe Burrow nine times in their divisional-round loss. If Jackson were to follow another former Patriots cornerback (Malcolm Butler), Jackson would end up in the Music City and be the AFC South’s top cornerback.
Jackson would finally give the Titans’ defense a playmaker at each level, and maybe they won’t have to put the ball in Tannehill’s hands that much. Instead, Jackson could keep games closer and let Tennessee do what it does best.
That’s letting Derrick Henry take the rock and ravage defenses. Another long-shot signing due to how much Jackson is going to demand, but the worst thing for the Titans is that he says no.
