CLEVELAND — The Cleveland Browns have signed defensive tackle Malik Jackson, a move that will add some veteran experience to the defensive line.

Jackson, who spent the past two seasons with the Eagles, will enter his 10th year in the NFL with Cleveland.

Jackson has appeared in 126 games, including 73 starts. He was a starter with the Broncos during their 2015 Super Bowl season. He scored the first touchdown in Super Bowl 50 when he fell on a fumble in the end zone during the first quarter of Denver’s 24-10 victory.

The past year with the Eagles, Jackson had 28 tackles and 2.5 sacks over 15 games.

Jackson joins the team’s defensive line led by All-Pro Myles Garrett and anchored in the middle by Sheldon Richardson. The signing of Jackson comes after DT Larry Ogunjobi signed as a free agent with the Bengals.
