Tanard Jackson Participating in Minicamp?

Here's an interesting note: it seems that Tanard Jackson will participate in the player-organized three-day minicamp at IMG in Bradenton, so notes Anwar Richardson of the Tampa Tribune. This is noteworthy because Tanard Jackson hasn't had any contact with any team officials since Week 3 of the 2010 Season. The talented free safety was suspended indefinitely by the NFL after violating the substance policy for the third time. The Bucs are not allowed to contact the fifth year player until he is reinstated by the league, which will be in week 3 of the regular season at the earliest. 

While the team is not allowed to communicate with Tanard Jackson in any way, the same is not true for his teammates now that they are locked out. This would allow him to participate in any player-organized workouts, and his presence at the IMG Performance Institute is a good sign. Jackson would be the most talented safety on the Bucs' roster if he were to return to the team, and it will only be a matter of time and being in shape for him to grab a starting spot after his return to the NFL.
