Browns Sign RB Terrence Magee, Waive/Injured RB Darius Jackson

The Cleveland Browns announced Thursday that they’ve signed RB Terrence Magee to a contract and waived RB Darius Jackson with an injury designation.

Should Jackson clear waivers on Friday, he would revert the team’s injured reserve list.

Magee, 24, signed on with the Ravens as an undrafted free agent out of LSU back in May of 2015. However, he was waived at the start of the 2015 season before later ending up on their practice squad.

The Ravens brought him back on an exclusive rights contract back last March but cut him a few months later.

After brief stints with the Rams and Seahawks, Magee signed on to the Browns’ practice squad during the season. The Seahawks signed Magee off of the Browns’ practice squad toward the end of last year before bringing him back on an exclusive rights contract a few months ago.

Unfortunately, Seattle cut him loose shortly after this year’s draft.

In 2016, Magee has appeared in two games and rushed for 12 yards on three carries and no touchdowns.

Jackson, 23, was selected in the sixth round of last year’s draft by the Cowboys. Dallas waived Jackson late last season and he was later claimed off of waivers by the Browns.

Jackson currently in the second year of his four-year, $2.44 million contract and stands to make a base salary of $630,000 for the 2017 season.

Jackson has yet to appear in an NFL game.

During his college career at Eastern Michigan, Jackson ran for 1,596 yards on 321 carries (5 YPC) to go along with 44 receptions for 375 yards receiving and 21 touchdowns.
