The first big deal of the pre-free agency period came in Jacksonville, with the news that Malik Jackson had agreed to terms.

Here are the specific terms to which he agreed: It’s a base deal of $85.5 million that can be nudged to $90 million.

Jackson gets $10 million to sign, a fully-guaranteed base salary of $8 million in 2016, and a fully-guaranteed base salary of $13.5 million in 2017. The deal includes a $13.5 million base salary for 2018 that is guaranteed for injury only, but that becomes fully-guaranteed on the fifth day of the 2018 league year.

The remaining non-guaranteed base salaries are $13 million, $13.75 million, and $13.75 million. The deal also includes up to $1.5 million in escalators for 2019 through 2021 based on playing time, wins, and playoffs. The specifics of the triggers for unlocking the remaining $4.5 million aren’t known.

    Can he push it to $90 million before he’s cut in 2 years due to salary cap reasons?

    Pay him up front. Take the cap early. No sweat for The Jags Cap situation. Signed the best FA. Can’t complain. Go Jags

    Ok, I’m a huge Bronco fan and saw how much havoc this dude caused years ago and he only got more disruptive. I’m glad the man got paid, but he benefited last year from Miller, Ware, Barrett, and Ray. I’m sure most teams, concentrated on stopping our outside pass rush. He won’t be as effective in J-Ville.

    Actually without effective interior pressure, Von and Ware aren’t as effective. Pressure up the middle will flush out a QB into likely the hands of an edge rusher.

    As a Broncos fan, I think Malik Jackson is good but we’ll really find out now. Malik was never double teamed because the other teams focus was on Von Miller and Ware. It’ll be interesting to see if Malik can handle the double team and still be disruptive.

    Go watch Super Bowl 50 and you’ll see a man that took over the game in Von Miller. Miller was getting to Newton so fast he wasn’t even set after his drop back. A man cutting the edge at blazing speeds has nothing to do with interior pressure.

    3 years $45 mill. Not bad
