D'Qwell Jackson with scheduled visits in Tennessee and Denver

The former Browns linebacker is in an intriguing debate in Cincinnati.

For those of you hoping that D'Qwell Jackson becomes the next displaced linebacker in the AFC North to settle in Cincinnati, you may want to hold off for a moment. According to ESPN NFL Nation reporter Jeff Legwold, the former Cleveland Browns linebacker has already lined up visits with the Tennessee Titans and Denver Broncos.

Jackson, who was scheduled to earn a roster bonus worth $4 million on March 15 with a $9.43 million cap number in 2014, was released on Wednesday. Over the last three seasons, the veteran linebacker generated 417 tackles, 8.5 quarterback sacks, four interceptions, a touchdown and four forced fumbles.

Though it would appear unlikely that Cincinnati is interested in Jackson, he would be an obvious candidate to replace Rey Maualuga at inside linebacker (the difference in production isn't even close). However, in time, I see the Bengals shifting Vontaze Burfict inside and, provided that he blossoms, Emmanuel Lamur going with a more active role at WILL.
