1 post in this topic

The Indianapolis Colts today released inside linebacker D’Qwell Jackson. 

“D’Qwell is a consummate professional,” said Head Coach Chuck Pagano. “The way he approaches the game is second to none. His leadership and mentorship provided a valuable example for the younger players on this team. We are grateful for all of his contributions to the organization and wish him the best.”

 

Jackson, 6-0, 242 pounds, was signed by the Colts as a free agent on March 6, 2014. He has started 140-of-141 career NFL games and totaled 1,350 tackles (838 solo), 19.5 sacks, 42 passes defensed, seven forced fumbles, 13 fumble recoveries (one returned for a touchdown) and nine interceptions (two returned for touchdowns). Jackson started all three playoff contests he appeared in and recorded 33 tackles (20 solo), two passes defensed and one interception. He has registered eight-career 100-tackle seasons and has led his team in tackles in eight of his 11 seasons in the NFL.

 

Jackson led the Colts in tackles in each of his three seasons in Indianapolis. In 2016, he started all 12 games he played in and tallied 82 tackles (56 solo), 1.0 sack, three passes defensed and two fumble recoveries. Jackson recorded a career-high 193 tackles (105 solo) in 2015 and added 3.0 sacks, 10 passes defensed, one forced fumble and one interception (returned for a touchdown). He was selected to his first career Pro Bowl in 2014 after collecting 184 tackles (111 solo), 4.0 sacks, one pass defensed, one forced fumble and four fumble recoveries (one returned for a touchdown).

    • Sorry to hear what happened to your oldest adopted grandson CC1. I wouldn't wish that level of concussion trauma on anybody. It's not my place to condemn any parents decision to let them play football or not. Car crashes can happen behind the wheel on any road or freeway too, but that wouldn't stop parents from teaching their kids how to drive a vehicle composed on metal, plastic, glass, & rubber either.    Look, tragedy can happen to anybody at any moment doing a variety of different things. I get where you're coming from--A quality of life vantage point. Both before & after the number of concussions grew. I also don't have any kids biologically speaking so I can't really say with authority my POV from a fatherly perspective. Sure, I have cousins & nephews of course. I would just tell them can you handle getting slammed or contacted every play? If it's not your cup of tea try something else. My nephew Matthew wrestles & my other nephew played football for a while, but he gave it up when he didn't get much playing time.    Again, my deepest sympathies for your grandson. I will say this though. I always chuckle when people create the misguided impression that football is the only sport where team bonding is built though. It's not. Most people go out for football & they either stick with it or they say forget this & move on. I'm fine either way. 
    • Brew Crew lost again, if the Cubs hang on and win they will be .5 back in the Division at 24-21. The Brew Crew is now at 25-21. Cards/Dodgers just starting up, Cards are at 22-20.
