According to ESPN’s Josina Anderson, defensive end Malik Jackson confirmed to ESPN that he will be leaving the Super Bowl 50 champion Denver Broncos to join the Jacksonville Jaguars on a six-year deal worth up to $90 million.
The deal includes $42 million guaranteed with an average of a $15 million salary per year. That means if things hold to form, the Broncos will have already paid Jackson $45 million halfway through the contract.
What a time to be alive

Jackson, 26, was a 5th round pick by the Broncos in 2012. He had a career best 45 tackles this year, batting down seven passes – another career high.
As for the Jaguars, we already saw their potential on an offense that was led by Blake Bortles. Jackson will add to a promising defense that will have Dante Fowler Jr. this year. You also can’t forget about Paul Posluszny, Johnathan Cyprien, Davon House, Dwayne Gratz, and Demetrius McCray on that promising defense.
