Jackson chooses Colts over Broncos, others

D'Qwell Jackson has agreed to a reported four-year deal to join the Colts; according to PFT, Jackson will get $11M in guarantees (probably not all full guarantees) as part of a $22M contract.

Jackson had visited Denver, Tennessee, and Miami, and had reportedly drawn interest from Arizona and Minnesota as well.

Other top pending free agent linebackers include Arizona's Karlos Dansby, Baltimore's Daryl Smith (who played under Jack Del Rio for eight seasons), and New England's Brandon Spikes.

According to Cecil Lammey, the Broncos are interested in Alabama linebacker C.J. Mosley, although they might have to trade up from #31 to get him.
