The Philadelphia Eagles would be smart to target this cornerback who played for a division rival.

The Philadelphia Eagles have been one of the most active teams in free agency this year. They have brought in Saquon Barkley, Bryce Huff, Chauncey Gardner-Johnson, and Devin White. They also extended Landon Dickerson and decided to retain Josh Sweat after taking calls on him.

They have bolstered this squad to bounce back in 2024 after a disappointing campaign. One area where they still need to improve is in the secondary, and Philly should think about bringing in former Giants' cornerback Adoree' Jackson.

Eagles Rumors: Philly Should Bring in Adoree' Jackson

The Eagles need to find a way to improve their pass defense next season. In 2023, Philadelphia struggled to stop the pass and was ranked 31st in pass defense (252.7). Both Darius Slay (33) and James Bradberry (30) are getting up there in age.

Bringing in Jackson would raise the floor of the secondary. The USC product has great speed and light feet to quickly change directions in coverage. Since 2017, Jackson has compiled 376 total tackles, 56 pass deflections, and four interceptions.

Getting a veteran in the secondary while potentially still drafting one would be a wise move for the Eagles. A one-year-flier makes sense for both sides. Philadelphia weakens a division rival while also improving an area of need.
