The Tampa Bay Buccaneers have released Tanard Jackson after the safety failed a physical, the team announced. "I was a little shocked, but the person I am, I accept how it comes," Jackson told the Tampa Bay Times. "I realize it's a business. It's hard to be too upset with decision because of what I've been through and I have no hard feelings toward the organization and wish them the best. I really don't know, maybe it was because I wasn't doing rehab here in Tampa after surgery but doing it in New Orleans with trainers up there. They just said they were going in a different direction. That's the way it was given to me." Jackson was also suspended for a year in 2010 for violating the NFL's substance abuse policy. Last season, he started 10 games and had 35 tackles and two interceptions.

  • Gee - looks like the writing is becoming clearer - the Buc's are making moves so that if Richardson isn't the pick, they can move Barber to safety and he can coach up his heir apparent Claiborne. Either Richardson or Claiborne will fit just fine in this scenario because they need to put Gator to use at some point too. The plan is really starting to take shape in Tampa and the future looks bright!
