The New York Giants and Carolina Panthers have swung trades as they attempt to whittle their roster down to 85 players by Tuesday’s 4 p.m. cutdown deadline.

The New York Giants traded cornerback Isaac Yiadom to the Green Bay Packers in exchange for cornerback Josh Jackson, a source told PFF. The trade was first reported by Matt Lombardo of Fansided.

Yiadom was selected by the Denver Broncos in the third round of the 2018 NFL Draft. The Boston College product started 10 games for the Giants in 2020, registering a 56.8 PFF grade.

Jackson was selected by the Packers in the second round of the 2018 NFL Draft. He’s played in 42 games, starting 15, in three seasons. He earned a 52.0 PFF grade in 2020.

The Miami Dolphins have acquired offensive tackle Greg Little in a trade with the Carolina Panthers for a 2022 seventh-round pick, Carolina announced Tuesday. Little, a 2019 second-round pick out of Ole Miss, has played in 14 games, starting six, in two NFL seasons. Little earned a 44.1 PFF grade in 10 games and 134 offensive snaps last season.

NFL IMPACT

A disappointing start: Yiadom's 51.7 PFF coverage grade since 2018 ranks 53rd among the 62 outside corners who have played at least 500 coverage snaps in that span.

Don't count on him racking up the PBUs: The former Boston College Eagle has the length NFL teams covet, but he's struggled to make impact plays in coverage. His career 9.7% forced incompletion rate on the outside is well below the 50th percentile at the position.

Panthers content with Cam Erving at LT: Erving's 44.4 PFF grade since 2018 ranks last among all offensive linemen with at least 1,500 offensive snaps in that span. He tops the Panthers' depth chart with Trent Scott behind him.

No LT has allowed pressure at a higher rate since 2019: Little's 10.9% pressure rate allowed since entering the league leads all left tackles with at least 150 pass-blocking snaps in that time.

Another tackle option for Miami: Austin Jackson‘s preseason debut (47.3 PFF grade) shared many of the same struggles that derailed his rookie season. Jackson's 52.3 PFF grade in 2020 ranked 37th among 38 qualifying left tackles. Little gives them another option to compete with Jackson and Jesse Davis, the two projected starters, for a starting job and provide more depth.
