D’Qwell Jackson the line-backer the Cleveland Browns released today, was clearly one of the best defensive players the team had. He was a leader both on and off the field. He always kept a winning attitude and helped develop the right attitude in the younger players.
Today the team that says over and over, how they aren’t the same old Cleveland Browns released Jackson. Could it be because of the 4.1 million dollar roster bonus Jackson would be due, if he was still on the team on March 15th?
It is hard for the fans in Cleveland to accept the fact Browns owner Jimmy Haslam III always says this is not the same old Cleveland Browns. Then he turns around and lets one of the best producing players on the Browns defense walk.
It is my understanding that both sides met, and they both agreed on the release. Jackson was sure he would be back in a Browns uniform at the end of last season. The team could have just made one big mistake letting this guy go.
Jackson had the ability to be a play maker on the teams defense and I think the Browns are going to miss this guy.
