Browns Agree to Three Year Deal With Seneca Wallace; D'Qwell Jackson Returning Too

New, comments

The Cleveland Browns were wheeling and dealing the night prior to the "original" end of the collective bargaining agreement as they re-signed two of their players: QB Seneca Wallace and LB D'Qwell Jackson.

According to Adam Schefter, Cleveland is bringing Wallace back under a three-year deal worth $9 million. That means we are currently paying both backup quarterbacks a lot of money, although I imagine Wallace's deal might be worth more in his later two years or might be incentive-laden.

According to the Plain Dealer, Jackson is returning under an incentive-laden one-year deal that could be worth up to $4.5 million. That sounds fair because if Jackson ends up being healthy again and has a tremendous year, he'll earn his dues. I like the motivation factor when it comes to things like that. On the other hand, we are telling Jackson that he has been a big injury risk over the past two years, so he needed to provide them with an "out."

I don't want to really get into discussing tenders because I don't know if they apply after the CBA expires, but CB Eric Wright was given a second-round tender.
