The Indianapolis Colts are trading third-year cornerback Nate Hairston to the New York Jets for a sixth-round draft pick in 2020.
Hairston, 25, played in 27 games and registered 65 tackles, two sacks and one interception over the past two seasons. He made 11 starts.
A fifth-round pick in 2017 out of Temple, Hairston has two years left on his rookie contract.
The Colts are deep at cornerback, and Hairston was seen a potential casualty heading into Sunday’s roster cutdown.
