Yeah buddy!

Let’s do some legal tampering.

Today NFL teams are allowed to begin contacting agents of available players, resulting in a rumor mill of tasty Eagles-related tidbits and morsels.

Apparently the Birds are in on DT Malik Jackson:

EDIT:

Adam Schefter originally reported this was a three-year, ten million dollar deal, then explained this:

Okay, so it’s $10 million a year. It’s not a Howie Roseman fleecing.

Pro Football Talk was first to report the interest.

Malik Jackson is a player. 6’5″, 290 pounds, 29 years old, a 2017 Pro Bowler and Super Bowl champion with the Broncos. He was released by the Jags recently as a salary cap casualty (around $15 million) but could be a very good Tim Jernigan replacement, depending on whether or not the Birds overpaid.

He had a bit of a down year in 2018, as Jeremy Bergman writes:

Jackson started every game during his first two seasons in Duval and recorded 14.5 sacks and four forced fumbles. But Jackson played just 61.4 percent of the Jaguars‘ defensive snaps in 2018 and fewer than 30 snaps in each of Jacksonville’s final three games. The DT finished with 3.5 sacks, his fewest total since 2014.

Change of scenery? Might help a guy who has put up these career stats, after the jump:

One of the big things here is that Jackson has loads of playoff experience, 11 games total under his belt. He’s been to one Super Bowl and two AFC Championship Games and would (will?) be a nice fit here as a veteran replacement on the defensive line.

It’s more money than originally reported, but I still like the deal, I think.
