The Broncos have agreed to terms on a three-year deal worth $33 million with defensive back Kareem Jackson, Ian Rapoport of NFL Media reports. The move is a boost over last years starting cornerbacks including Shareece Wright, and cornerback turned safety turned cornerback again Kareem Jackson. But Roby is a decent Plan B at cornerback.

It was unlikely Bradley Roby would return to the Broncos.

According to ESPN's Adam Schefter, that will include signing former Miami Dolphins offensive tackle Ja'Wuan James to a whopping four-year, $52 million contract with $32 million in guarantees. However, that didn't quite work out in Denver as Roby struggled in 2018.

In that time, Jackson's racked up 16 interceptions (three for touchdowns), 88 passes defensed, six forced fumbles, three fumble recoveries, two sacks, and 559 tackles (468 solo).
