Adoree’ Jackson Could be the Solution for Cowboys’ CB Issues

In a rather surprising move the released their former 2017 first-round pick .

Adoree' Jackson is more than likely the top-ranked CB in now and a player who the should absolutely try to add to the mix for 2021 and beyond.

If rumors are true the former USC standout was someone the Dallas Cowboys were targeting in the . Unfortunately, the Tennessee Titans swooped in and selected Adoree' Jackson with the 18th overall pick in the first-round, leaving the Cowboys to address the CB position later when they selected (2nd-round) and (3rd-round).

Fast-forward to the present and all three look as if they will be playing for different teams in 2021. In fact, Chidobe Awuzie just announce his goodbyes to after a three-year, $21.75 million deal with the . With Awuzie officially out of the picture, could the Dallas Cowboys set their sights on Adoree' Jackson?

Wounds have a way of healing pretty slowly at times and missing out on a player they were high on back in 2017 could rekindle the affection the Dallas Cowboys had for Adoree' Jackson coming out of USC. Believe it or not, but those fires might've even intensified considering the way he's played in the NFL since then and the fact is just 25 years old.

Since 2018 Adoree' Jackson has had one of the highest coverage grades amongst outside CBs in the entire league. Surprisingly enough though, you seldom hear his name mentioned in the same company as any of the above-mentioned players. That would definitely change if he signed with one of the most recognizable sports organizations in the entire world, the Dallas Cowboys.

If his coverage grade amongst outside CBs since 2018 wasn't convincing enough, his deep coverage numbers since entering the league should be all of the convincing the Dallas Cowboys need to make him a priority signing.

An added bonus, since he was released by the Tennessee Titans Adoree' Jackson wouldn't count towards the compensatory pick formula. That's something the Dallas Cowboys seem to put a lot of stock in when navigating through free agency every year.

So… What's it going to take to put Adoree' Jackson in Dallas Cowboys uniform in 2021?

I'd be lying if I had any idea what it would take to unite these two. Fortunately though KD Drummond is a lot smarter than I am and laid out a hypothetical contract that could work well for both parties concerned.

Honestly, I think both Adoree' Jackson and the Dallas Cowboys would be more than happy to ink this deal. The Cowboys would be upgrading the CB position with one of the best, young players in the league and Jackson would not only be receiving a favorable contract, but also get hit free agency again at the age of 28. Sounds like a win-win all around.

The only thing we can do now is what we've been doing all along. Sit and wait to see when the Dallas Cowboys will finally throw their hat into the free agency circus and make moves that will without a doubt be upgrades to their roster. Signing Adoree' Jackson would absolutely qualify as such a move.
