Giants continue signing spree, adding cornerback Adoree Jackson
The New York Giants continued their free-agent spending spree, signing cornerback Adoree Jackson.
The team reached a three-year deal with the former Tennessee Titan. 
The deal is believed to be worth roughly $13 million annually.
Jackson was due $10.24 million under the fifth-year option the Titans picked up last year. But he became a salary cap casualty last month after a knee injury just before the start of the season limited him to three games in 2020. Jackson started 41 of 46 games for the Titans and has only two career interceptions.
The first-round pick out of USC had 33 pass deflections, three forced fumbles and two fumble recoveries. He also can return kicks.
Since the start of free agency, the Giants have signed wide receiver Kenny Golladay, two-time Pro Bowl tight end Kyle Rudolph, fellow Vikings defensive end Ifeadi Odenigbo, quarterback Mike Glennon, inside linebacker Reggie Ragland, running back Devontae Booker, receiver John Ross, fullback Cullen Gillaspia - all as free agents.
The team worked out a new major deal with defensive lineman Leonard Williams and re-signed receiver C.J. Board, defensive tackle Austin Johnson and long snapper Casey Kreiter.
General manager Dave Gettleman also re-worked the contract of offensive tackle Nate Solder and released veteran guard Kevin Zeitler.
New York had a 6-10 record under first-year coach Joe Judge last season.
