The Cleveland Browns decided to release linebacker D’Qwell Jackson and Browns general manager Ray Farmer commented on Jackson’s release in a statement.
“We had positive discussion with D’Qwell and his agent over the last several days, and we came to the mutual agreement to go in different directions. D’Qwell is the epitome of class, leadership and professionalism.
“Every day of his NFL career, D’Qwell has been a solid representative of the Browns and the City of Cleveland, both between the lines on Sundays and off the field in our area community. We want to thank him for his eight years of service and wish him nothing but the best in his future endeavors.”
With him hitting the free agent market, he is likely to draw interest from multiple teams. Beat writer Jim Wyatt of the Tennessean expects the Tennessee Titans to be amongst the teams competing for his services.
