Malik Jackson remains a priority for the Denver Broncos to re-sign, but he could be poised to test the free agent market if the team places its exclusive franchise tag on Von Miller, the Denver Post reports.
Jackson is reportedly seeking a contract worth around $14 million per season, but the Broncos have only offered less than $11 million thus far. As a result, the parties haven't been able to strike agreement on a long-term deal. With Miller's situation at a similar, albeit more expensive, hurdle, Denver may have to prioritize one player for its franchise tag before Tuesday's deadline. That almost certainly will be Miller, thus leaving Jackson to take calls from interested teams and potentially sign elsewhere this offseason.
Malik Jackson recorded five tackles, one tackle for a loss, one quarterback hit, a fumble recovery and a touchdown in Denver's Super Bowl 50 victory over Carolina.
Jackson pounced on Von Miller's first strip sack of Cam Newton, giving Denver a 10-0 lead in the first quarter. The team never looked back. Jackson didn't record a sack in the playoffs, and managed a modest five during the season, but established himself as a disruptive interior force. The Denver Broncos locked up Jackson's other half, Derek Wolfe, and have Von Miller's contract to worry about, likely making Jackson one of the better free agent defensive linemen.
Malik Jackson had five tackles, including two sacks during Sunday's loss to the Steelers.
Jackson started off the season very well, picking up 3.5 sacks in the first five games, but he hadn't gotten to the quarterback since Week 6 before Sunday's two-sack effort.
Malik Jackson had three tackles, including a sack, Sunday against the Browns.
Jackson has now picked up at least a half-sack in four of six games this season, recording 3.5 so far, putting him well on pace to best his career-high of six. That being said, he's a marginal fantasy IDP option given his low tackle totals (career-high of 42).
