The Patriots have landed themselves a new cornerback who happens to share a name with an icon.
New England on Sunday traded a 2022 draft pick to the Detriot Lions in exchange for second-year cornerback Michael Jackson. Of course, people on Twitter couldn’t help but point out the obvious and they had a ball with it once the news broke.
Check out some of the tweets:

These probably won’t be the last of the Michael Jackson jokes you’ll hear this season.
