Running Back Brandon Jackson Signs Two-Year Deal With Cleveland

NFL Network's Jason La Canfora wrote on Tuesday that the Cincinnati Bengals expressed interest in Green Bay Packers running back Brandon Jackson. This was later confirmed by Chicago Sun-Times Bears and NFL columnist Sean Jensen, as well as Cincinnati's own Joe Reedy. Take note that if the Bengals signed Jackson, it wasn't meant to replace Cedric Benson or supplement a full time running back that could carry the football 25-30 times a game if necessary. And for as much as we know, the reported "interest" could just be an exploratory phone call to Jackson's agent.

Not that it matters really.

According to ESPN NFL Insider Adam Schefter, the Cleveland Browns signed Jackson to a two-year deal worth $4.5 million.

We wrote earlier this week:

Comparative to Cedric Benson, Jackson has a mediocre 3.8 yard/rush average on 347 career carries compared to Benson, who posted a 3.5 yard/rush average last season.

Ultimately it's not that big of a loss; the only reason we're posting on it is because of reported interest by the Bengals.
