BEREA, Ohio – The Browns have agreed to terms with free agent running back Brandon Jackson on a 1-year contract.
Jackson played in just two games for Cleveland last season. In the finale against Pittsburgh, he rushed for 54 yards on eight carries. Jackson was inactive for 13 games.
The Browns had high hopes for the 27-year-old when they signed him in 2011. But he sustained a toe injury in the second preseason game and was placed on injured reserve. The previous season, Jackson set career highs in rushing, touchdowns, receptions and receiving yards for Green Bay.
The 5-10, 216-pound Jackson is not expected to sign his new deal with the Browns until Monday. The team has to make another move to clear a roster spot before his deal can be finalized.
