Browns inducts legends to Browns' of Legends 2021 class
Cleveland, OH- The Cleveland Browns announced earlier this week that they were going to honor Linebacker D’Qwell Jackson and the late quarterback Bill Nelsen.
Jackson and Nelson had an immediate impact with the Browns' organization when they played and the Browns felt like it was only right to recognize and honor them during week 3 of the regular schedule.
“We are always honored to recognize Browns alumni who mean so much to our organization and fans, and it is even more special this year as we have the opportunity to do it throughout our 75th anniversary season,” said Dee and Jimmy Haslam. “After not being able to host the event in 2020, we greatly look forward to 2021 Alumni Weekend, when we will induct four deserving men – D’Qwell Jackson, Bill Nelsen, Webster Slaughter and Josh Cribbs – into our Legends program as we celebrate them and all of our alumni’s achievements and commitment to the Browns.”
Jackson played seven seasons with the Browns (2006-2013) and was a defender that everyone feared when he was on the field. In 2008, Jackson had a NFL best of 154 tackles and broke his career tackles in 2011 with 158. After leaving the Browns' organization in 2013, he finished his career up with the Colts. Jackson left everything on the field and finished his career with 1192 tackles, 19.5 sacks, and 9 picks.
