Veteran linebacker D'Qwell Jackson agreed to a deal with the Indianapolis Colts on Thursday.

Jackson received four-year deal worth $22 million, including $11 million guaranteed, a league source told ESPN NFL Insider Adam Schefter.

Colts owner Jim Irsay and the team's official Twitter account welcomed Jackson to the team in separate tweets Thursday morning.

The Browns released the Jackson, cutting ties with one of their most popular players who was due a $4.1 million roster bonus in March. He made visits to several teams in the days after he was released.

In joining the Colts, Jackson is reunited with former Browns coach Rob Chudzinski, who was hired by Indianapolis to assist head coach Chuck Pagano after being fired by Cleveland after just one season at the helm.
