Taylor, 26, is a former fifth-round pick of the Giants back in 2013. He’s currently in the final year of his four-year, $2.34 million rookie contract and stands to make a base salary of $675,000 for the 2016 season.
In 2015, Taylor appeared in six games for the Giants and recorded 11 tackles and no interceptions.
Jackson, 24, is a former sixth-round pick of the Giants back in 2014. He was unfortunately waived coming out of the preseason, during his rookie year, but was later signed to the team’s practice squad.
The Giants brought him back on an exclusive rights deal.
He has yet to appear in an NFL game.
White, 26, wound up signing on with the Packers as an undrafted free agent out of Louisiana Tech back in 2013. He spent a good amount of time on the Packers’ practice squad, but managed to make the 53-man roster last year.
However, White was unfortunately waived to make room for James Jones. He wasn’t out of a job for long, as the Giants signed him to their practice squad just a few days later. New York brought him back on a one-year exclusive rights deal.
In 2015, White appeared in 12 games for the Giants and recorded seven receptions for 88 yards receiving and a touchdown.
