Anyone interested?

I feel that he could play the inside role that the team is looking for...he's been healthy and productive for Cleveland.

Reading on PFF, Jackson has not been as good in recent years, but prior to that he excelled in a 4-3 base scheme. Seems like he might be a decent fit for us if the price is right.

I usually ignore these "this guy got cut...interested?" threads...

But Jackson? Can't see how the Bills will not at least inquire...He's a good player at a need position... B-)

Can we claim him off waivers? Minnesota is the only team that concerns me if so.

I'm not sure.  I'm also wondering, in conjunction with this, since he has been cut is he free to negotiate now?  Or does he have to wait until March 11th as well?

as he has more than 4 years service, he was released not waived. which should make him a fully unrestricted free agent today-- unless there was some tweak in the cba update about this i missed he can be signed just like any other guy on the street.

That is what I thought.  I would think this would be great move for the Bills.  It would fill a definite need and push down the priority of drafting one at 9.  It would certainly give them options heading into the draft.

Yes, he can sign right away

I guess he doesn't fill what Pettine wants in his scheme there, but this seems to be a no-brainer for the Bills. Also, if he lived in Cleveland for that long, he could definitely be just fine with living in Buffalo. He may have his pick of the litter as he is a strong player that any number of teams should pursue. Fingers are crossed

the twist being that so many have said we will be keeping much of pettines scheme here as a counter to discussion about schwartzs schemes.

really, until we see some more info, its hard to advocate for any defensive players right now as we dont know what we will be running.

This is a NO BRAINER. Much better option than Spikes. Please FO make a move ASAP. As said on twitter, moving van and limo should already be on I-90 to stalk him.

I'm not convinced of that...the Browns have done a lot of strange things organizationally in the last year, cutting Jackson to avoid paying his $4M roster bonus without consulting the coach would be but a pebble on a mountain of dysfunction.
