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.
New #Redskins S Tanard Jackson signs his contract this morning at Redskins Park: yfrog.com/nuthakxj— Redskins (@Redskins) April 13, 2012
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.
