Malik Jackson rumors: "Cool" to play for Giants, per report

Let the speculation continue.

Malik Jackson, the talented young defensive tackle for the Denver Broncos, seems like an obvious target for the New York Giants in free agency. We talked about Jackson earlier this week. Jackson, prepping for Super Bowl 50 with the Broncos, said this week that he also has an eye on playing with the Giants.

"It'd be cool,'' Jackson said Wednesday. "Great market, great fans.

"If I did have an opportunity to go there, it would be cool to reunite with my boy Robert Ayers. I know Devon Kennard's out there, too. If that was the case, it'd be dope. Hopefully me and the Broncos work something out, but if not, there's definitely a chance that I'll be looking for a new home. It's a business, you got to do what you got to do."

Let's be honest. This could simply be a case of a free-agent-to-be asked a question about a potential free-agent suitor and simply not wanting to close a door. The 26-year-old would slide nicely into the Giants defense as a versatile defensive lineman who could play both inside and outside, though, so the comment is worthy of filing away for future reference.
