Holdout still appears to be out of question for Browns linebacker D'Qwell Jackson

Browns linebacker D'Qwell Jackson plans to attend the first day of the team's training camp July 31 in Berea, Jackson's agent, Brian Mackler, wrote in an e-mail.

After Jackson, pictured left, signed his one-year tender for $1.759 million on June 14 to end his contract dispute as a restricted free agent, reports surfaced indicating that Jackson would not hold out for a long-term deal. On Tuesday, Mackler confirmed nothing has changed, and his client should be on time for training camp.

Browns safety Abram Elam, who, like Jackson, was a restricted free agent before signing his tender just before the June 15 deadline, recently suggested on his blog that he'll also be at training camp on time.

Linebacker Matt Roth, running back Jerome Harrison and fullback Lawrence Vickers were the Browns' three other RFAs who signed their tenders to avoid giving the team a chance to reduce their offers to 110 percent of their 2009 base salaries. No word yet about how they'll handle training camp.

Earlier this summer, Harrison and Vickers attended some of the Browns' voluntary organized team activities as well as their mandatory minicamp. However, Jackson, Elam and Roth did not show.
