Malik Jackson aims for ten sacks in his contract year

"The sky is the limit... I think I gotta go out there and at least break ten (sacks)."

Gary A. Vasquez-USA TODAY Sports

Three quick hits from Broncos defensive end Malik Jackson, who joined Eric Goodman and Zach Fogg on Mile High Sports radio's Afternoon Drive Tuesday.

On his goal for sacks this season

"I think a realistic goal for me - I think I put myself in a position coming up these past few years to say the sky is the limit," Jackson said. "I think I gotta go out there and at least break ten. Go out there and get more than I've gotten before, and then try and double it and double it and try to break the record."

On Sylvester Williams' growth in Wade Phillips' defense

"I've seen him grow in the NFL. Came in first round pick, trying to find his way. Now he's trying to find his way in a defense he can strive in and be great in. It's awesome to see."

On a possible contract extension mid-season

"To me it's more pressure to be great. I understand what's coming up, and I understand what could happen," Jackson said. "I just look at it as trying to go out here and go by each game and get better each game and do great games and just let some of those things fall into place.

"I'm trying to put myself in a position where I don't have to leave Denver. I like Denver." -Malik Jackson on entering a contract year in 2015

"I can't be looking for a second contract if I don't go out there and do anything. So I think my mindset is kind of, know that's going to happen at the end of the year but go out here and put myself in a position where I don't have to leave Denver. That's what I'm trying to do. I like Denver."

Jackson continued: "My mindset is to just go out here and destroy whoever lines up in front of me."
