Lions trade CB Jackson to Patriots for draft pick

The Lions traded cornerback Michael Jackson to the Patriots on Sunday after the Lions had announced they were planning to release Jackson. The Lions receive a conditional 2022 seventh-round draft pick, a source told ESPN's Mike Reiss.

The backstory of how the Patriots traded for Lions CB Michael Jackson on Sunday is notable. The Lions had announced on their website that they were waiving Jackson, but before processing that transaction officially, the Patriots traded for him. That ensured the Patriots wouldn't have to wait out a waiver claim, where they are lower in the priority order. Jackson (6-1, 210) adds depth at cornerback, where the Patriots are already deep, with his best shot to make the club coming on special teams.
