Tanard Jackson

Tanard Jackson as well all know is one of Raheem Morris players from Tampa as well as a former draft pick of current Redskins GM Bruce Allen. When he was suspended for violating the NFL substance abuse policy, Redskins head coach Mike Shanahan expressed his disappointment in Jackson. Had Jackson been on the field this year, our secondary would not have struggled as much as it has. That aside, does Jackson have a future in Washington? Or will the Redskins look elsewhere to solidify the free safety position? Mike Shanahan should have looked at Jackson's prior violations more closely before signing him. If the Redskins keep Jackson whose to say that he won't violate the rules against substance abuse yet again?

Re: Tanard Jackson

I don't think you can rely on him based on his history. I wouldn't trust him enough to pencil him in as the starter that's for sure. I'd keep him around for depth though and hope he gets his head on straight.

Re: Tanard Jackson

Yeah, that sounds about right. I've seen him play with the Bucs and in the preseason as a Redskin and the guy is a ball hawk. But I wouldn't trust him. We signed him back in March and between that time and training camp the dude is committing violations. The only reason why I think the Redskins may keep him is because of the way Allen and Shanahan handled Trent Williams and Fred Davis substance abuse violations. Both of them are still with the Redskins. But Jackson I'm not so sure. Maybe Jackson stays are maybe he won't.

Re: Tanard Jackson

if he's cheap and we have 2 other starters, no harm, but don't depend on him.

really we should sign byrd. probably an easy top 5 FA for us.

I'm with this. We have to bring SOMEONE in next year. Merriweather and Jackson would be serviceable starters, but we're seeing how much good that's done us this year. If we bring in one more starting caliber guy, I'd feel alot better. I think Gomes has shown flashes, but still nothing I'd trust at this point.

Re: Tanard Jackson

Gomes is okay but until he shows and proves he can play safety, I don't want to see him on the field. If Jackson cleans himself up and gets his act together I think he can contribute. But there's no way I'd rely on him as a starting FS.

Re: Tanard Jackson

Now, with that teaser we got from Meriweather, do you keep him too?

If you do, you better have a equal backup. Also, BW is signed through till the end of next year.

Re: Tanard Jackson

What about Honey Badger as a mid rounder? I like him at free safety.
