The Browns just added depth to their defensive line, signing Malik Jackson to a deal per ESPN’s Jeremy Fowler.

The Eagles released Jackson this week ending what was supposed to be a dynamic, game-wrecking duo with Fletcher Cox, but injuries and inconsistent made it hard to warrant the $10+ million salary he was due before restructuring his contract.

Jackson missed the bulk of the 2019 season with a foot injury and after returning in 2020, he logged 1½ sacks and 11 QB hits the first six games of the year but no sacks and just one QB hit in the final eight.

Jackson was scheduled to earn $2 million next year plus a $1 million roster bonus and carries a $5.61 million cap hit.
