One day after releasing safety Tanard Jackson, the Redskins are reportedly set to re-sign him.
According to Dianna Marie Russini of NBC News 4 in Washington, the Redskins are re-signing Jackson at a more club-friendly price.
The 28-year-old Jackson has not played in an NFL regular season game since 2011. He was suspended for the 2012 and 2013 seasons for violating the NFL’s substance-abuse policy. News of his reinstatement to NFL activities surfaced on Monday.
Jackson’s reinstatement will be revisited before the beginning of regular season play, Howard Balzer of The Sports Xchange reported Wednesday.
Jackson started 56 games in five seasons for the Buccaneers (2007-2011), recording 239 tackles and intercepting 10 passes.
