The Browns have released linebacker D'Qwell Jackson, their undisputed team leader and the longest-tenured member of the team.
I's all about the Benjamin's baby. Jackson wanted more than the Browns wanted to pay (he was slotted to earn a $4.1 million roster bonus on March 15th). Jackson received $19 million in guarantees and bonuses for the extension he signed through 2016, but with the bonus he was due and the $3.93 million in salary, the Browns decided not to commit $8 million to him for 2014.ANALYST: Ray Flowers
John Brown is practicing Thursday.
Brown should be a full-go this week and will see a fair share of the targets regardless of Michael Floyd's status. Obviously he'll see more if Floyd is out, but even if he's in, Brown should have ample opportunities this week. Analysis: Howard Bender
