Surprise, surprise: Redskins sign Tanard Jackson



Safety Tanard Jackson will be reunited with former Bucs head coach Raheem Morris after signing with the Washington Redskins.

Jackson, who was released earlier this week for a failed physical, joins a rebuilt Redskins secondary coached by Morris.

Jackson started 10 games last season after being suspended all of 2010 for testing positive for a banned substance.

Although he played with a torn rotator cuff and two hamstring strains, the Bucs released him saying he had not shown growth on and off the field. Jackson decided to rehab a shouilder injury in Maryland and New Orleans.

Jackson said he will be ready to play by June 1.
