Longtime Cleveland Browns linebacker D’Qwell Jackson was released by the team Wednesday, but he’s already lining up potential suitors.

Jackson is scheduled to visit with the Tennessee Titans over the weekend, according to a report from Jim Wyatt of The Tennessean.

Jackson had 141 total tackles, 1.5 sacks and one interception last season with the Browns, his seventh in Cleveland. He could follow his defensive coordinator last season, Ray Horton, to Tennessee, where he now holds the same position.

From Wyatt’s report:

“D’Qwell has been a coach’s dream as far as leadership, intelligence,” Horton told theCleveland Plain-Dealer last season. “He demands a lot from himself and his teammates. He really is a locker room coach (with) some of the things he says after the game and at halftime.”

The 30-year-old Jackson has spent all seven of his pro seasons in Cleveland.
