From Adam Schefter:
Former Packers RB Brandon Jackson reaches agreement with the Browns on a 2-year, $4.5 million deal.
Jackson will be a nice compliment to the Browns' established starter Peyton Hillis. Browns head coach Pat Shurmur is installing a version of the West Coast Offense that will utilize Jackson's ability to catch the ball out of the backfield. Also, with a young quarterback in Colt McCoy, Jackson's exceptional pass protection was no doubt intriguing to Browns' President Mike Holmgren.
The Packers will now most likely turn to 3rd round draft pick Alex Green to fill the vacated third down back role, though James Starks and Dimitri Nance could also see time in that capacity, not to mention fullback John Kuhn (if he resigns with the team) who Packers coach Mike McCarthy used extensively on third downs in the Packers' Super Bowl run.
