Browns LB Jackson to skip next week’s voluntary OTAs

Add LB D’Qwell Jackson to the list of Browns players who plan on skipping voluntary organized team activities next week.

Jackson informed the Cleveland Plain Dealer in a text message: “I won’t be attending OTAs, but I have a clear head and ready for the season so I can play the best ball I’ve played of my career!”

Jackson’s planned absence apparently is in response to the team not fulfilling its promise of a long-term extension before last season. The four-year veteran missed 10 games in 2009 with a torn pectoral, one season after recording a team-high 154 tackles in 2008.

Jackson joins S Abram Elam, RB Jerome Harrison, LB Matt Roth and FB Lawrence Vickers as Browns players expected to skip OTAs, which will begin Monday, according to the Plain Dealer.
