NASHVILLE, Tenn. – The Titans have reached a deal with cornerback Adoree' Jackson.

Jackson, the 18th overall pick in the NFL Draft, joined the veterans in the offseason program last week, and was on the field when the team kicked off organized team activities on Tuesday. He signed his contract with the team after practice.

The Titans have now reached deals with six of their nine picks from the 2017 draft class.

At USC, Jackson was the 2016 Jim Thorpe Award winner as the nation's top cornerback. He finished the season with 55 tackles, five interceptions and 11 passes defensed while totaling 1,230 all-purpose yards and five touchdowns.

Jackson was the 2016 Pac-12 Defensive Player of the Year, and he ranked first in Pac-12 history in career kickoff-return touchdowns (four), and fourth all-time in career punt-return scores (four). He was a two-time finalist for the Paul Hornung Award, given annually to the most versatile player in major college football.
