INDIANAPOLIS COLTS RELEASE ILB-D’QWELL JACKSON 

Recommended Posts

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).

    • Love:  NFL Films   *In the voice of John Facenda* - "They call it Pro Football"     Hate:  That they didn't have HD cameras back then...    (Sidenote  -  If I get into heaven, I expect St. Peter to be like "Ok, now before you enter, here is John Facenda with your life highlights."  And then the classic NFL Films music starts up while I get to listen to "It all started on a frozen January morning, in the rugged hills of West Virginia, where a Mountaineer was born, and a life well-lived had just begun..."  )
    • on paper they are a 'Dynamic Duo'. But because of health concerns, especially Geathers, I'm concerned about how often they will be on the field together.
    • Who cares about Grigson, I just want to know where this awesome gif is from! 
    • I honestly believe that if Andrew Luck is healthy and our O-Line plays like we think they can then the Colts will be in the hunt for the division title and a playoff berth. I think Jacksonville is the favorite because of that defense, but I'm not very high on the Titans or Texans. Just a gut feeling, but I think the Colts will finish 10-6 and end up with a wild card berth.
    • Great topic @coltsfeva.  Enjoyed thinking about this.   Love: The coverage. As a football (soccer) fan, there is no equivalent to Redzone and that is such a brilliant way to watch the games.  Also an easy way to get friends/family involved in watching as they struggle to watch a full game on its own from an outside perspective.  The detail.  You could spend hours analysing one play, with the amount of people involved in key areas.  So much substance in everything that happens on the field (well expect that fake punt thing Pagano ran!) Tony Romo.  He brings so much to the table in terms of entertainment and knowledge, makes every game he commentates on more interesting and hopefully more like him enter the booth in the coming years. Playing in all conditions.  Some of the snow games can be brutal to watch (perfect example was the Bills game) but they are such a great spectacle.  The parity.  Again, linking back to soccer, teams can buy their way to the top but the salary cap gives all teams hope for the future with draft stock.  The only risk IMO is the ever increasing salary cap limit.   Hate: Over the top analysts.  People who just have hot takes to get their names out there on twitter.   The off-season.  Why does it have to be so long! I am not sure what the answer is as more games means more likely injuries before post-season, but this time of year is so dull!  Maybe more games and more bye-weeks to compensate? The Patriots.  Because, well, you know.
