The Browns have re-signed cornerback Robert Jackson, Mary Kay Cabot of reports.

The team waived him Feb. 11.

Jackson, 27, played 10 games for the Browns last season, mostly on special teams. He made six tackles, no interceptions and a pass breakup. He saw action on only six defensive snaps.

Jackson hurt his hamstring while playing 76 snaps in the wild-card playoff win over the Steelers and went on injured reserve.

He played six games for the Browns in 2019.

The 16 games played over the past two seasons — plus one playoff game — stands as Jackson’s only career action.

He entered the league in 2018 with the Colts and spent time on the Texans’ practice squad that season.

  1. I’m assuming he took a pay cut which is why they had to release him prior to re-signing. I commend him for stepping up when the team needed him thanks to covid and injuries but hopefully he won’t see much action outside of special teams ever again (unless of course he progresses). Teams took full advantage of him being in to the point I felt bad.
