Report: Broncos signing DB Jackson for 3 years, $33M

The Denver Broncos are signing longtime Houston Texans defensive back Kareem Jackson to a three-year, $33 million deal with $23 million guaranteed, NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport reported Monday.

Jackson, who turns 31 in April, has been a starter in the Houston secondary since the Texans drafted him in the first round in 2010.

After playing his first eight seasons at cornerback, Jackson also spent time at safety last season after teammate Andre Hal was diagnosed with lymphoma. He started all 16 games and finished 2018 with 87 tackles, 17 passes defensed and two interceptions.

In 132 career games with Houston (124 starts), Jackson collected 559 tackles, 16 interceptions and three pick-sixes.

The Texans have lost three members of their 2018 secondary, with cornerback Kevin Johnson agreeing to terms with the Buffalo Bills and safety Tyrann Mathieu joining the Kansas City Chiefs.
