Browns LB D’Qwell Jackson mentioned that he’s hoping to re-sign with the Cleveland Browns, per Greg Bedard of the Boston Globe.
Jackson has missed 26 games after suffering multiple torn pectoral muscles during the last few years but this season he was able to finish second in total tackles and is a one of the top candidates for Comeback Player of the Year.
“I want to be in Cleveland,” he said. “If it’s the franchise tag, it’s the franchise tag. As long as I still have my health, that’s what is most important.”
Jackson should drawn plenty of interest during the offseason but it’s hard to assume that teams will be offering him a long-term deal.
We have Jackson listed as the #26 best available free agent in our Top 50 Free Agents list.
