Good article on Jackson' release and his interest in the Skins
Shocked By His Release, Jackson Hopes To Land With Redskins-Pewter Report: Your source for inside and breaking news on the Tampa Bay Buccaneers
It's good to see that they did not release him due to an actual failure in physical or drug test. I hope we sign Jackson. His past problems don't concern me that much -- we just factor all of that in when working out an agreement. If he had to choose between weed or cash I bet he would choose the cash but if not, we protect ourselves just in case.

According to John Keim, the Redskins have signed Madieu Williams. Love this move....if it was 2008

Re: 2012 Redskins Free Agency (and Trades) Tracker (Chapter III)

Here's what we have now
FS: M. Williams, C. Griffin, (Possibly T. Jackson)
SS: Meriweather, Doughty, Gomes

I'm hoping we still pursue T. Jackson despite signing Williams... Now let's assume we sign T. Jackson as well; do we still draft a FS? (I say No)

i hope so and i say yes, jackson is a ballhawk type fs. he would start at free and ill say merriweather starts at strong. i hope this happens. Hes a player and makes things happen.

I don't get why people get so upset over these moves. We have a 90 man roster right now, just because we signed them doesn't mean they'll make it out of preseason. A little roster competition never hurt anyone, especially in a known area of weakness.

As I've said before, I don't mind having a camp competition for the safety position.

I hope we bring in T Jax and I hope spend a draft pick at either Safety position.

People forget our safety play last year was maybe worst league or at least bottom 3 worst in the league. We need a complete 180 so the more bodies in camp the better. We need mass improvement at that position.

I just saw on Twitter that the Redskins are going to sign Leigh Torrence. Did I miss something??

I was told the same thing this morning. Thought it was a joke. Maybe it's not

Good for him. Good guy

Are we desperate for CB's? Hopefully he's better now than during his first stint with us. You could've put a paraplegic back there and he would've had a better chance at the ball than Torrence.

Gives us some flexibility. He's a decent vet.

That's a sad group...sad, sad, sad. I think it was another thread someone said they expect our defense to take a step backward this year. Without a unforeseen infusion of legit talent at safety it's pretty plausible.

Well our other options would have been Landry with a big health question mark and an aging Atogwe.
