And D'Qwell Jackson puffed.


In the end, however, he opted against blowing the house down.


In early March, agent Brian Mackler complained loudly to the Cleveland Plain Dealer regarding the contention that the team made promises to Jackson that hadn't been kept. As the next few months unfolded, Jackson stayed away from all offseason activities.


But with the June 15 deadline threatening to take more than $1 million away from his pending tender offer, Jackson opted to suck it up and sign the one-year, $1.759 million contract, according to Mary Kay Cabot of the Cleveland Plain Dealer.


We've separately been told that Jackson's gesture doesn't mean only that he's protecting his money. Instead, it's our understanding he plans to move on from his claim that promises were broken, and he plans to focus on having a strong season as a member of the Browns.


He caved. He all knew he would. Obviously, it's the smart move for him. If he can prove that he can stay healthy, make tackles at the line of scrimmage and cover his man without giving up a completion 7-10 yards down the field, then pay him. Otherwise, let him go next off season.

All 5 of them caved in, now lets hope that there is no hard feelings and they all want to play their asses off to prove their worth, abe elam will make a decent 3rd stringer even though he is being overpaid about 800k vs actual skills.. to bad toughness doesnt count as talent..
