Recently released by the Jacksonville Jaguars, defensive tackle Malik Jackson has reportedly found a new home in Philadelphia.

ESPN’s Josina Anderson broke the news Monday morning ahead of the tampering period.



Anderson’s colleague at ESPN, Adam Schefter, notes it’s a three-year, $30 million deal.

Jackson was a highly coveted free agent a few years back coming out of Denver. He signed a massive deal with Jacksonville in 2016 but saw his playing time and production fall off last year.

In seven years as a pro, Jackson has tallied 239 tackles, 32 sacks and one safety. The 29-year-old also was named to a Pro Bowl in 2017. He should be rock-solid complement to superstar defensive tackle Fletcher Cox in Philly.
