Report: Free agent cornerback Jerry Jacobs visiting the Vikings

As the search for cornerback depth continues, the Minnesota Vikings are preparing to host free agent Jerry Jacobs this week, according to ESPN's Jeremy Fowler, who says Jacobs is also making a visit to the Atlanta Falcons.

Jacobs was a solid corner for the Lions in 2023, racking up 55 tackles to go along with three interceptions and eight passes defensed.

According to Pro Football Focus, Jacobs ranked 96th among NFL cornerbacks who played at least 20% of defensive snaps. His coverage grade ranked 103rd among cornerbacks.

Minnesota's cornerback room is led by veterans Byron Murphy Jr. and Shaq Griffin, with Mehki Blackmon, Akayleb Evans, Andrew Booth Jr., Khyree Jackson, Najee Thompson, Joejuan Williams, Jaylen Williams, A.J. Green III and Dwight McGlothern rounding out the depth chart.

The Vikings wrapped up rookie minicamp last weekend and the next big offseason dates are mandatory minicamp on June 4-6.
