New England Patriots Expected To Cut All-Pro Superstar
Get the Boston tea spill on the flipside on who the New England Patriots are expected to cut in the off-season…
CelebnSports247.com is hearing rumors that the Los Angeles Chargers signed JC Jackson to a five-year, $82.5 million deal in March of 2022, but traded him to the Patriots four games into the 2023 season.
Then they traded Jackson and a 2025 seventh-round pick for a 2025 sixth-round pick from the Patriots. Los Angeles paid Jackson $38.5 million for seven games over two seasons.
In December, the Patriots placed Jackson on the reserve/non-football illness list that ended his season.
Now he might be on his way out of town.
A new rumor floating on the internet states that the Patriots might cut the cornerback this offseason and save themselves $14 million in cap space while costing them nothing in dead cap.
Hre is the tea we just got from Savage:
The Patriots will likely cut JC Jackson before the 2024 season.
Cutting JC Jackson would save the Patriots 14 million in cap space and cost them 0 dollars in dead cap.

Jackson was said to be dealing with “mental health issues” which caused him to miss the Patriots’ Week 15 loss to the Kansas City Chiefs.
The 28-year-old spent from 2018-21 with the Pats — a four-year stint which included a Super Bowl championship (LIII) and earning nods as a both Pro Bowler and an All-Pro. Since his return, he logged 25 tackles and six passes-defensed.
The New England Patriots are in the midst of a new era after they parted ways with head coach Bill Belichick and signed Jared Mayo as the head honcho.
Bill Belichick is one of the greatest coaches in NFL history, but his record without Tom Brady couldn’t be ignored. The franchise is still trying to recover.
