We had a post the other day outlining why Tanard Jackson would be a logical pick up for the Redskins when he was cut by the Buccaneers for failing a physical. Well... it seems as if the Redskins agreed with our logic and Jackson will be reunited with his old head coach Raheem Morris.
Jackson has spent his whole five year NFL career in Tampa where he was a 4th round pick in 2007. He was a starter for the Bucs since Day 1, but has been plagued by injuries the past two years. Jackson enters a safety competition that is set to feature Reed Doughty, DeJon Gomes, Madieu Williams, Brandon Meriweather, and possibly Cedric Griffin.
