The Browns still haven’t made a giant splash in free agency, but they have added some very important running back depth. Adam Schefter tweets that the Browns have signed Jackson to a 2-year deal worth $4.5 million. That isn’t a lot of money for a 25-year old running back who had over 1000 yards between running and receiving last season with the Packers as he filled in for the injured Ryan Grant.
So, the Browns now have Brandon Jackson to go along with Peyton Hillis, Montario Hardesty, Owen Marecic, and Mike Bell. Regardless of Hardesty’s health, it is good to have options at running back. It never seems like you can have enough in the NFL, especially with a Madden Curse hanging over your head.***
Now, if you would like to see a meaningless highlight of Brandon Jackson running behind an army of blockers, here you go.
*** I don’t really believe in curses.
