Titans CB Adoree’ Jackson wants to play more offense

In his NFL debut season, Titans cornerback Adoree’ Jackson finished just one snap away from tying Arizona’s Tyrann Mathieu for the league lead in playing time.Mike Mularkey’s coaching staff put a lot on the rookie’s plate, asking him to cover inside and outside on top of kick-return duties. Now that new coach Mike Vrabel is in town, Jackson is pushing for an opportunity to play more snaps on offense.”I’m hoping so,” Jackson told NFL Network’s Good Morning Football on Friday. “I’m that bug in his ear just trying to make sure I keep being out there if I can. Whatever he needs me to do. Focusing on defense and special teams as in returning, but if he throws me out there I’m going to be excited and fired up.”A multi-purpose threat in college, Jackson caught 39 passes and took 15 handoffs in three years at USC.Although he carried the ball just five times last season, Jackson became the first player since Hall of Famer Mike Renfro in 1966 to start at least eight games on defense and rush for 50 or more yards on offense, per Football Perspective.
