Redskins signed FS Tanard Jackson, formerly of the Buccaneers, to a one-year contract.
That didn't take long. The Redskins were fully expected to consider Jackson now that former Bucs coach Raheem Morris is running the secondary. Turning 27 in July, Jackson is worth the risk as long as it's a low-cost deal. He will likely compete with Madieu Williams and DeJon Gomes for the starting free safety job. Jackson's signing certainly hurts Williams' chances of making the team.
I'll assume if he makes the team, his contract will have weekly game day bonuses, kind of like Landry's deal for the Jets.
I like the pickup for the Skins though. High reward if he can keep his head straight, which is a big IF. He has to know though, this is his last chance to stay in the league.
