D’Qwell Jackson heads to Denver for Broncos visit
Free-agent linebacker D’Qwell Jackson made his first visit since being cut by the Browns to the Titans. He’s now on his way to see the Broncos.
According to Mary Kay Cabot of the Cleveland Plain Dealer, Jackson currently is en route to the land of legalized marijuana. (Which could be a selling point for some free agents.)
Because he was released, Jackson can sign with any team, at any time. It gives him a head start on free agency, which opens March 11.
The Cardinals and Vikings reportedly are interested in Jackson, a second-round pick of the Browns back in 2006.
Former Browns G.M. Tom Heckert currently serves as director of pro personnel with the Broncos. Heckert worked in Cleveland when Jackson signed in 2012 a five-year, $42.5 million contract.
