New York Giants 2022 Training Camp Roster Preview: CB Michael Jacquet

Michael Jacquet might be relatively new to playing cornerback, but there's enough to like about his skillset.

The New York Giants are projected to carry over a dozen cornerbacks in training camp this summer, and one of those is former Eagles and Jaguars defensive back Michael Jacquet III, 6-oot-2, 201 pounds.

Jacquet, who was added to the Giants roster in part following the release of James Bradberry and in part due to some of the other cornerbacks being limited in the spring, originally signed as an undrafted free agent with the Eagles in 2020 out of Louisiana but did not make the 53-man roster.

He was signed to the Eagles' practice squad, though, and would go on to be a standard practice squad elevation for the Eagles' games in Week 8 and 10. On November 17, 2020, Jacquet was signed to the Eagles' 53-man roster, and he appeared in seven games with two starts, registering 18 tackles, one sack, and three pass breakups.
