Colts Cut LB Jackson, Save $5.5M Against Cap – The Colts have released veteran linebacker D’Qwell Jackson, the team announced Thursday. Jackson led the Colts in tackles in two of his three seasons with the team. He missed the final four regular-season games in 2016 after being suspended for using performance-enhancing drugs and finished one tackle behind Mike Adams for the team lead. Age and money likely played a factor in his release. The Colts will save $5.5 million in salary cap space as the 33-year-old Jackson was scheduled to make a $5 million base salary in 2017 as well as a $500,000 roster bonus due March 13.
