This puts one of the best defensive tackles next to Fletcher Cox, definitely making their front four even more menacing. Jackson has eclipsed 32.5 career sacks to go with 252 career tackles. He’s a force inside and the Eagles are helping their front four out a lot by adding him.
Jackson is a very good deal for the Eagles especially for the number they are getting him at. He’s one of the best interior defensive linemen in the league. He comes to Philadelphia to win a Super Bowl and with him on defense, the Eagles will like their defensive chances. The Eagles have always made sure their trenches were bolstered and now, they are going to go into every game thinking their defensive line can beat the opposing offensive line.
