Klis says that Jackson will sign a deal that will “make him the NFL’s fourth highest-paid defensive lineman”. If that is true, Jackson’s APY should at least $13.6M APY. (Gerald McCoy is currently 4th at that amount, if Muhammad Wilkerson’s franchise tag is ignored.) That will be quite easily a 3rd round compensatory pick due to Denver in 2017 if they do not sign a UFA that cancels him out.
