J.C. Jackson is ready for action.
The AFC West turned into a flat-out arms race this offseason. The Chargers traded for Khalil Mack and signed J.C. Jackson while retaining star wide receiver Mike Williams. The Raiders traded for star receiver Davante Adams and signed pass-rusher Chandler Jones, while the Denver Broncos found a new quarterback in Russell Wilson.
All three of those clubs will be looking to top the Kansas City Chiefs, who lost a big chunk of their offense when they traded Tyreek Hill to the Miami Dolphins.
On Tuesday, Jackson was asked about shadowing Adams twice a year moving forward. Instead of answering how he will handle the challenge, he said Adams and the Raiders better be prepared for him and his new squad.

“They better be ready for us,” Jackson said, via the Chargers website. “I don’t want to talk about him. They better be ready for us.”
Jackson led the NFL in passes defended last year with 23, earning Pro Bowl and All-Pro honors for his efforts.
He will have his hands full as Davante Adams has made five straight Pro Bowls and two First-Team All-Pro teams catching passes from Aaron Rodgers. In eight years with the Packers, he has 8,121 yards and 73 touchdowns on 669 receptions.
Derek Carr may be a major step down from Rodgers, but he can sling the ball as well.
The undrafted defensive back out of Maryland has 25 interceptions since entering the NFL in 2018, which leads the league.
These teams playing twice a year will be fun for years to come.WANT MORE FROM TOTALPROSPORTS? FOLLOW US ON GOOGLE NEWS.
