A former member of the Green Bay Packers secondary is joining the Kansas City Chiefs just nine days before Matt LaFleur’s team travels to Kansas City to take on the Chiefs.

Cornerback Josh Jackson signed to the Chiefs practice squad on Friday, per the league’s transaction wire.

Jackson, a second-round pick of the Packers in 2018, was traded to the New York Giants in exchange for Isaac Yiadom in August. He was waived by the Giants earlier this week.

Jackson spent almost of training camp with the Packers and would have at least some level of knowledge on the inner workings of Green Bay’s secondary and defensive scheme, potentially creating extra prep work for defensive coordinator Joe Barry and defensive backs coach Jerry Gray this week.

The eventual value is probably overrated, but it is possible Jackson could provide insight on the Packers for Patrick Mahomes and Andy Reid.

Jackson didn’t play a single snap for the Giants.

The Chiefs had a chance to take Jackson in the 2018 draft. Kansas City traded up to No. 46 overall but ended up selecting Breeland Speaks two picks before the Packers took Jackson.

The Packers play Mahomes and the Chiefs at Arrowhead Stadium next Sunday.
