Former Giants DB Bennett Jackson announced via his Twitter account that he’s signed a futures deal with the Ravens for the 2018 season.
Futures deals are essentially camp invites that will give players the opportunity to compete for roster spots during offseason workouts and training camp.
Jackson, 26, is a former sixth-round pick of the Giants back in 2014. He was unable to make the 53-man roster during his rookie year but later signed on to their practice squad.
In 2015, Jackson suffered a season-ending ACL tear that led to him being placed on injured reserve. The Giants elected to bring him back on a future/reserve contract but once again waived him coming out of the preseason.
Jackson has yet to appear in an NFL game.
