J.C. Jackson returns to Patriots from Chargers.

According to sources speaking to ESPN on Wednesday, the New England Patriots and Los Angeles Chargers have agreed to a deal for cornerback J.C. Jackson.

According to a source who spoke to ESPN, the Chargers will send Jackson and a 2025 seventh-round pick to New England while the Patriots will send them a 2025 sixth-round pick.

According to sources speaking to ESPN's Jeremy Fowler, the Patriots and Chargers are rearranging Jackson's remaining $9.33 million contract for 2023 to allow the deal.

With New England covering about $1.5 million and the Chargers covering the rest as a signing bonus. 

Otherwise, according to the sources, Jackson's contract, which is valid through the 2026 season, remains in place.

In Sunday's 38-3 loss to the Dallas Cowboys, promising Patriots rookie cornerback Christian Gonzalez, the team's first-round pick this year, sustained a shoulder injury. 

Gonzalez is out indefinitely due to a ruptured labrum, a source told ESPN's Adam Schefter.

After four seasons with the Patriots, Jackson agreed to a five-year, $82.5 million contract with the Chargers last offseason.
