Tanard Jackson joins Redskins
Jackson spent his previous five NFL seasons with the Buccaneers after being selected in the fourth round of the 2007 draft. He has started all 56 regular-season games in which he appeared, making 239 tackles, 10 interceptions, five forced fumbles, six fumble recoveries and two touchdowns.
In September 2010, Jackson was suspended for a year for violating the NFL's substance abuse policy. He was reinstated last October and started 10 games.
Jackson sat out the first four games of the 2009 season while serving a previous suspension for violating the substance abuse policy.
