It’s another addition to the defensive side of the ball for the Cleveland Browns.
The Cleveland Browns are not done improving their defense through free agency. After making deals with John Johnson, Troy Hill, Takk McKinley, and Anthony Walker, Cleveland has signed Malik Jackson to a one-year deal.
Malik Jackson will join a Browns defensive line which includes Myles Garrett, McKinley, Sheldon Richardson, Jordan Elliott, Andrew Billings, and Porter Gustin. This is quite the impressive group that now has a bit more versatility with the addition of Jackson. Jackson has the ability to play in multiple spots on the defensive front which should allow Joe Woods to be a bit more creative with his looks.
The 31-year old veteran appeared in 15 games for the Eagles last season resisting 2.5 sacks and 28 tackles in addition to 2 pass defenses and 1 fumble recovery. Malik Jackson only appeared in just under 50% of defensive snaps for Philadelphia in 2020 and he could fill a similar role with the Browns this season.
