If you were holding out hope that you could finally put your Tanard Jackson jersey to good use, it is time to ship it off to Goodwill or use it as a clean up rag because the Washington Redskins announced on Tuesday afternoon that they have released the former fourth-round pick.
Aaron Wilson of the Baltimore Sun passed along the news.
Jackson was reinstated by the NFL on Tuesday after being suspended for a year and a half after violating the NFL substance-abuse policy, and he was welcomed back to the nation’s capital with his walking papers.
Despite signing with the Redskins back in 2012, Jackson never played a down in a regular season game as a member of the Redskins. He was eligible to be reinstated last August, but the league decided to keep him out of action for the entire 2013 season.
Now, he will have to look elsewhere for an opportunity to get his career in the NFL rolling again which seems highly unlikely at this point in his career.
