Confirmed: Redskins Terminate Tanard Jackson’s Contract
WASHINGTON (CBSDC) - Only hours after Bruce Allen said recently reinstated safety Tanard Jackson “might” be given a chance to make the Redskins, the team has decided to terminate his contract, 106.7 The Fan’s Sky Kerstein has confirmed.
Jackson, 28, was reportedly reinstated by the league on Monday, according to Jason La Canfora, after missing the duration of the last two seasons on indefinite suspension, for violation of the league’s substance abuse policy in 2012.
On Tuesday, Allen noted Jackson would have to comply with “a lot of rules and regulations” handed down by the league and the NFL Payers Association, in order to maintain his NFL eligibility.
“If he meets all of those conditions that the NFL has laid out for him and after meeting with him, we might give him a chance,” Allen said.
Jackson last played on Jan. 1, 2012 for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.
