According to Mary Kay Cabot of the Cleveland Plain-Dealer, linebacker D’Qwell Jackson’s agent said that he had a “very positive meeting” with the Cleveland Browns on Saturday at the NFL scouting combine, regarding a multi-year contract.
“We’re working really hard on this and hopefully we can get something done,” said agent Brian Mackler per Cabot. “We’re working hard on it every day.”
If the Browns and Mackler are unable to get a deal done before free agency begins, they’ll likely place the franchise tag on Jackson
“After the season was over, D’Qwell and I met and he instructed me to do everything in my power to get a long-term deal done with the Browns,” said Mackler. “He wants to retire as a Cleveland Brown and likes the direction the team is going in. He thinks (coach) Pat Shurmur and (defensive coordinator) Dick Jauron are tremendous.
“The Browns have made it clear how much they’d like to have D’Qwell back. Now it’s up to Matt and I to accomplish the goal for both parties.”
