Potential Free Agent Safety Tanard Jackson

The Bucs announced that they have cut Tanard Jackson, a Safety drafted out of Syracuse as a corner in the 4th round of the 2007 draft after a fail physical related to shoulder surgery. However that seems like an easy out for the new management.

After being drafted, he quickly developed a reputation as one of the biggest hitters in the league (per an SI player poll I read a while back but cant find a link to) and started all 56 games he played in.

"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 the 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."

He has been suspended twice for substances (Im not sure what)

Stats:

Jackson has played in a total of 56 games with 56 starts and compiled 324 tackles, 10 interceptions, 31 passes defensed and one sack.
