D’Qwell Jackson looking for “more stability” after leaving Cleveland


D’Qwell Jackson wants to go “somewhere else where there’s a little bit more stability and a situation that’s a little bit better for me,” he said after he was cut by the Browns on Wednesday.

Jackson told Northeast Ohio Media Group that he was “more than willing to restructure,” but he and the Browns couldn’t come up with a contract that both sides thought would work.

In Jackson’s eight seasons with the Browns, there hasn’t been much stability in Cleveland. They’ve gone from Romeo Crennel to Eric Mangini to Pat Shurmur to Rob Chudzinski to Mike Pettine as head coach, and never made the playoffs. Still, Jackson said he would have enjoyed staying in Cleveland and trying to turn things around, if they had been able to agree to a contract.

“I gave Cleveland everything I had,” Jackson said. “This time around I have a chance to choose where I want to go. I’ve saved my money and it’s time for me to experience something different. I hate to say it, but I think it was necessary.”

Jackson may not be a free agent for long, as he has reportedly scheduled a visit with another team today.

    Take the art Modell express down to baltimore and we’ll show you what a real franchise looks like. And a real defense for that matter.

    The Patriots have that “stability” that you’re looking for.

    I hate to see you go D’Qwell. You were one of the few bright spots during your time here. Good luck to you where ever you go.

    You can’t win much with 5 head coaches in 8 years.

    Mr. Jackson, welcome to Tennessee.

    I thought maybe the Bills would be smart and make a serious play for him.

    But then he started talking about wanting stability, something new, etc. which I’m assuming means playoff football. So there goes THAT pipe dream.

    Chicago has what you’re looking for DQ

    Mike Pettine, welcome to the Factory of Sadness!

    Don’t know if it’s being considered but would love to see him in Minny. I can’t see is doing a Cleveland and firing our coach after one season. Unfortunate to see Cleveland sports loose another good player on one of their teams.

    Every team wants him but Cleveland?

  18. timbuttrum says: Feb 27, 2014 12:27 PM

    So much for coming to Washington

    I wonder if Carolina will take the number 4 pick for Kuechly? They can draft Sammy Watkins and the Browns can get the Linebacker that should have been here all along.

  20. urbusted2 says: Feb 27, 2014 12:47 PM

    The Browns may pick a linebacker at 26, not 4.

  21. usher716 says: Feb 27, 2014 12:52 PM

    So really if he’s looking for some more stability, he can to any team in the league that’s not the Browns.

    Ray Horton might like him in Tennessee. Our coach just got a 5 year deal!
