10-Year NFL Veteran & Pro Bowler Announces Retirement

Malik Jackson, a former Pro Bowl defensive tackle in the NFL, recently announced his retirement after a solid 10-year career.

He began his journey with the Denver Broncos, contributing to their Super Bowl 50 victory and establishing himself as a reliable interior pass rusher.

Jackson's skills and impact on the defensive line earned him a lucrative contract with the Jacksonville Jaguars, where he achieved a career-high eight sacks and received a Pro Bowl selection in 2017.

After a brief stint with the Cleveland Browns in 2021, Jackson decided to call it a career.

Throughout his impressive tenure, Jackson accumulated impressive statistics, including 35.5 sacks, 292 tackles, 63 tackles for loss, 106 quarterback hits, 29 passes defended, and four fumble recoveries.

Despite being a fifth-round pick in the 2012 NFL Draft, he surpassed expectations and proved to be a reliable and impactful player on the field. Jackson's contributions to the Broncos' Super Bowl run and the Jaguars' unexpected journey to the AFC Championship Game showcased his ability to make a significant impact.
