The Cleveland Browns have re-signed Middle Linebacker D'Qwell Jackson yesterday - five-years, $42.5 million, including $19 million in guaranteed money.

Jackson missed almost 2 full seasons with torn pectoral muscles on both sides of his chest that could have very well ended his career.

He fought back and worked hard to become a star on the Brown's defense. Cleveland was set to apply their franchise tag on him if a deal could not be reached.
