2018 AFC Playoffs

The growing (literally) legend of Patriots rookie cornerback J.C. Jackson

FOXBOROUGH — Since he left Maryland last year, J.C. Jackson has grown. Literally, if you believe the measurements he’s faced since he declared for the draft.

At the combine last year, the corner was measured at 5-foot-9 3/4. That’s after being listed as 6-foot-1 on the Maryland site. On the Patriots’ website, the rookie is listed at 6-foot-1.

So what’s the deal, J.C.?

What?” he replied when I asked him about the discrepancy after practice on Wednesday.

I explained the difference, and he just shook his head.
