It wouldn’t be an offseason with general manager Brandon Beane and head coach Sean McDermott if they didn’t take a look at a former Carolina Panther. Donte Jackson was a second-round pick by the Panthers in 2018, and while both Beane and McDermott were already in Buffalo, Jackson fits what the Bills could look for at the position.
He has been a turnover machine for the Panthers in his four years with Carolina with 12 interceptions in 51 career starts as well as having 38 passes defended.
There are certainly concerns with Jackson as he has only played a full 16 game season once, which was his rookie year. He currently is on injured reserve with a groin injury that is likely to cost him the remainder of this year.
If the Bills are comfortable with the injury history, Jackson could be a bargain free agent that is looking for a short-term deal that he could turn into a longer-term deal in 2022 as a way to get past this recent injury.
