LB D’Qwell Jackson to Possibly Sit Out Through Training Camp


Don’t expect linebacker D’Qwell Jackson’s holdout to end anytime soon, as he will wait until at least the June 15th deadline to sign the one-year tender that has been offered to him. Obviously, Jackson is not happy about being offered the second-round tender for a four-year player – $1.759 million – especially since he was promised a new deal by the previous regime. I don’t know if he’s noticed, but those aren’t the same people as last season working in the front office now.

By waiting until June 15th to make a decision, Jackson will most definitely miss the mandatory minicamp that runs from June 10-12. More importantly, he seems prepared to miss parts, or all, of training camp if he isn’t given the long-term deal that he believes he deserves. Jackson says that he wants to retire as a member of the Cleveland Browns, but with each day that he sits out, he falls further from the minds of the fans and the coaching staff.

Am I the only one who would have a guilty conscience for skipping all these team workouts and camps?
