Report: Colts worked out cornerback Asa Jackson

NFL: Preseason-Baltimore Ravens at Atlanta Falcons Brett Davis-USA TODAY Sports

The Indianapolis Colts are pretty beat up in the secondary, and that has led to plenty of roster shuffling in the past few days - most recently the signing of cornerback Rashaan Melvin yesterday in order to give the Colts “four healthy bodies” at the position, as Chuck Pagano pointed out Wednesday.

The Colts are looking all over for potential help at cornerback, and that likely won’t stop anytime soon. According to the Houston Chronicle’s Aaron Wilson, the Colts recently worked out corner Asa Jackson.

It’s unclear whether this workout occurred before or after the signing of Melvin, though the timing would help indicate how much the Colts liked Jackson following his workout.

Drafted in the fifth round of the 2012 NFL Draft by the Baltimore Ravens, Jackson has played in 18 career games and has recorded 30 tackles and three passes defensed. Though most of his career has been spent with the Ravens (both on the practice squad and active roster), he also spent a couple of days with the New York Giants, has spent time on the Cincinnati Bengals’ practice squad, and this offseason was with the Arizona Cardinals before he was cut during the first wave of roster cutdowns.

Again, it’s unclear whether anything will come of the workout, but it’s just another sign of what we already knew: the Colts are looking for help at cornerback, and they’re making moves and looking at guys who might be able to help them at the position.
