Malik Jackson took to Twitter tonight as he celebrated signing a mammoth six-year deal with the Jacksonville Jaguars, worth a reported $90 million.
Jackson was of course an essential part of Denver’s defence as the Broncos won the Super Bowl against the Carolina Panthers back in February.
However with coach Gary Kubiak pulling out all the stops to keep Von Miller in Denver, someone was bound to fall between the cracks, making Jackson one of the most in-demand free agents in football.
The Broncos loss is definitely the Jaguars gain.
And it seems Jackson is pretty pleased with the switch… that, and the amount of money which is about to steam roll its way into his bank account:
What a time to be alive

The 26-year-old has spent four seasons in Denver, however, he only became a full-time starter in 2015.
And what a year it was for Jackson, who compiled 45 tackles and five sacks, turning Denver into the most fearsome pass rush in football alongside Miller and DeMarcus Ware.
Whether Jackson can remain as impressive without Miller and Ware remains to be seen, but for now at least, what a time to be alive.
