Agrees to contract restructure

RotoWire Logo Published: 2024-05-06

Jackson restructured his contract with the Seahawks on Monday to clear roughly $1.89 million in cap space, Brady Henderson of reports.

Jackson signed a restricted free agent tender with Seattle to re-up with the team early April, but he now boasts a league-minimum base salary of $1.055 million in exchange for a new signing bonus of $167,500. A 2019 fifth-rounder, Jackson played a depth role on cornerback and contributed regularly on special teams across 17 games last season. He lacks a clear path to fantasy relevance in IDP formats, barring a player ahead of him on the depth chart missing time.

Inks RFA tender

Jackson signed his contract with the Seahawks as a restricted free agent Monday, John Boyle of the team's official site reports.

Jackson started all 17 regular-season games for Seattle in 2022, though he logged just four starts in 2023 despite the same amount of appearances. He figures to reprise in a key defensive role at cornerback for the 2024 campaign.

Role diminishes in 2023

Jackson posted 34 tackles (28 solo) and five pass breakups across 17 games during the 2023 season.

Jackson was a full-time starter during the 2022 season and racked up 75 tackles, 12 pass breakups and an interception. But things dropped off fiercly in 2023 with the addition of first-round pick Devon Witherspoon, as Jackson ended up starting just four games. He still put forth a solid tackle count. Jackson will be a restricted free agent in March, so there's a decent chance he's still in Seattle next year.

Listed as backup

Jackson is listed as a backup to Tre Brown on the depth chart ahead of Sunday's game versus the Rams, Bob Condotta of The Seattle Times reports.

Head coach Pete Carroll expects both Jackson and Brown to play in Sunday's game, but it appears Brown has the edge after Jackson had a rough preseason. Both cornerbacks will look to make an impact to secure a larger role once first-round rookie Devon Witherspoon (hamstring) is healthy and ready for NFL play.

Competing for starting spot

Jackson is competing for a spot as a starting corner, Curtis Crabtree of Fox 13 Seattle reports.

Jackson will have a chance at starting Week 1 despite struggling in Saturday's win versus the Cowboys. Rookie first-round pick Devon Witherspoon is now getting playing time in the slot, leaving the starting spot on the outside opposite Riq Woolen is open for the 26-year-old.

Projects as backup

Jackson will likely serve as a backup in 2023 after the Seahawks selected Devon Witherspoon in the first round of this year's draft, Bob Condotta of The Seattle Times reports.

Head coach Pete Carroll mentioned that Jackson and Witherspoon will compete for the job at left cornerback while second-year corner Tariq Woolen starts on the right side and Coby Bryant mans the slot. Carroll embraces competition, but when a team picks a corner fifth overall, he's going to start sooner than later. Jackson posted 75 tackles (63 solo) last season as a starter, so he'll be a useful IDP option if he does crack the starting lineup.

Re-signs with Seattle

Seattle re-signed Jackson, who was an exclusive rights free agent, on Monday, Bob Condotta of The Seattle Times reports.

Jackson posted 74 tackles, 12 pass defenses, two fumble recoveries and one interception across 17 appearances in 2022, his first campaign as a full-time starter. The 2019 fifth-round pick currently projects to be the top cornerback opposite Tariq Woolen in Seattle's secondary, but the Seahawks could add more cornerback depth in the 2023 NFL Draft.

Productive in first year as starter

Jackson posted 75 tackles (63 solo), 12 pass breakups, two fumble recoveries and an interception over 17 regular-season games in 2022.

Jackson played just 28 defensive snaps through his first three NFL seasons, but he started all 17 games in 2022 and played nearly every snap. The 2019 fifth-round pick was quite productive for fantasy purposes. However, he'll be a free agent in March, and he'll likely need to battle for a starting job in 2023 whether in Seattle or not.
