Cleveland Browns linebacker D'Qwell Jackson is excited to be part of an attack-style defence for the first time in his NFL career.

D'Qwell Jackson has said that he is excited to be part of an aggressive defence with the Cleveland Browns in 2012.

The linebacker recently praised the changes made by new head coach Rob Chudzinski and defensive coordinator Ray Horton.

The 29-year-old told The Plain Dealer: "Thus far, I haven't been in a defense where it's an aggressive, attack-style defence. I'm excited to see how I react to it, let alone the guys around me.

"It gives everyone a chance to be a playmaker from the strong safety to the outside linebackers. In this defense, he gives everyone an opportunity to either rush, cover or make big-play opportunities.

"I'm going to have a lot more opportunities to blitz. I won't be stationary. We have a lot of different fronts, so it won't be one look all the time."

Jackson recorded 3.5 sacks, two forced fumbles and two interceptions in 2012.
