Tanard Jackson Hopeful For Another ChanceAugust 29th, 2013
Drugs have destroyed Tanard Jackson’s career, but the former Bucs safety is still grinding away trying to earn one last shot — one last payday.
After the New Schiano Order cut Jackson in April 2012, he joined Raheem Morris and the Redskins and won a starting job, only to get suspended again last August by the NFL. Jackson is eligible to return this week, and he’s hopeful to get another chance with the Skins.
Below is an excerpt of Jackson’s recent sit-down with CSN Washington, where he talks about his struggles and maturity and working with youth. Joe hopes T-Jax has gotten serious help. At 28 years old, he’s surely on his last shot.
