Broncos View Re-Signing Malik Jackson & Danny Trevathan As “Priorities”, Plan To Talk To Their Reps Soon

Broncos president John Elway told reporters on Tuesday that re-signing impending free agents DL Malik Jackson and LB Danny Trevathan are “priorities” for them, via Lindsay Jones.

Elway added that they plan to begin speaking to their representatives right away.

Jackson, 26, is a former fifth-round pick of the Broncos back in 2012. He’s played out his four-year, $2,313,612 rookie contract and is in line to be one of the most sought after free agents in this year’s market.

In 2015, Jackson appeared in all 16 games for the Broncos and recorded 46 tackles, 5.5 sacks, two fumble recoveries, seven pass defenses and a safety. Pro Football Focus has him rated as the No. 9 defensive end in a 3-4 defense out of 57 qualifying players.

Trevathan, 25, was taken in the sixth round of the 2012 NFL Draft by the Broncos. He’s in the final year of his four-year, $2,204,072 rookie contract and will be an unrestricted free agent this March.

In 2015, Trevathan appeared in 15 games for the Broncos and recorded 110 tackles, no sacks, two interceptions with one of them being returned for a touchdown and six pass defenses. Pro Football Focus has him rated as the No. 6 inside linebacker out of 60 qualifying players.

We have both players featured in our Top 100 – 2016 Free Agents list.
