Browns moves-Claim Darius Jackson

The Cowboys released their sixth round pick Darius Jackson from Eastern Michigan in order to make space for activating veteran runner Darren McFadden and the Browns jumped on Jackson,claiming him off waivers.
The rookie running back has been inactive for every game,yet Cowboys followers have been upset about losing Jackson due to his preseason performance (141 yards on the ground) and are actually preferring Jackson over McFadden to most of the people I've read.
It made sense that Jackson was inactive on a team with Ezekiel Elliott,Alfred Morris and now McFadden,but a back with his size (6'1 220) with good speed and able to catch the football could turn out to be an interesting claim on the part of the Browns.
Cleveland cut linebacker Corey Lemonier to make space for Jackson.
Lemonier had two sacks earlier in the season,but had lost playing time after the trade that brought Jamie Collins to Cleveland and the increased playing time of Cam Johnson at linebacker
The Browns also promoted defensive tackle Gabe Wright to the active roster with the space made by the PED suspension of wide receiver Jordan Payton and lost linebacker Scooby Wright to the Cardinals.
Wright was a seventh round pick by the Browns,but the Cardinals took Wright off the practice squad with the opportunity for Wright to return to Arizona,where he had played college football.
