In a move that surprised absolutely no one, the Washington Redskins have signed safety Tanard Jackson just days after he was cut by the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. Jackson will be reunited with former head coach Raheem Morris, who is now the defensive backs coach in Washington. You can view a picture taken of Jackson signing his contract by clicking here.
Obviously the failed physical that was listed as the reason for Jackson being cut by the Bucs doesn't concern the Redskins. Morris has stuck with Jackson through thick and thin, so it's not surprising he wanted him to join him in Washington.
Bucs Nation would like to wish Tanard Jackson good luck. Hopefully he will conquer his personal demons and learn how to tackle again.
