The Philadelphia Eagles are hoping last season was a fluke season for Malik Jackson. The Eagles signed him to a three-year deal on Monday morning.
Jackson was recently released by the Jacksonville Jaguars on Friday. Despite having they had season, he is still young at 29.
He is still a quality pass rusher who would replace Michael Bennett in the defense. Bennett will be traded to the New England Patriots once the new league-year starts on Wednesday, March 13th.
The 29-year-old Northridge, California native spent the last three seasons with the Jaguars. This past season, he appeared in 16 games with 10 starts.
He had 32 tackles, including seven tackles for a loss, and 12 quarterback hits. He also had 3.5 sacks and one pass deflection.
The 3.5 sacks were the second fewest in his career. He also had 3.0 sacks in 2014 with the Denver Broncos.
He was released three-years into a six-year, $90 million deal. Jackson was a fifth-round draft pick by the Broncos in the 2012 NFL Draft.
One-year ago, during the 2017 season, Jackson had a career-best 8.0 sacks. He has made one Pro Bowl in his career, which came after the 2017 season.
