NBC Sports Philadelphia's Ray Didinger thinks you shouldn't sleep on Eagles' Malik Jackson


Plenty of hype and fanfare surrounded DeSean Jackson's return to the Eagles this offseason, and understandably so — even at 32 years old, Jackson is still a dynamic deep threat

But Eagles fans shouldn't overlook another Jackson, according to NBC Sports Philadelphia's Ray Didinger. 

Malik Jackson, a Pro Bowl defensive tackle for the Jacksonville Jaguars in 2017, is "really one of the best pass rushers in all of the NFL when he's on his game," according to Didinger.

With Michael Bennett and Chris Long notable departures on the Eagles' defensive line, Didinger thinks Jackson has a key role to play in 2019.

“Fletcher Cox is one of the top players at his position in the league, but he can’t play there alone," Didinger says. "He needs a companion next to him.”
