More on Jackson: ESPN980's Chris Russell exchanged texts with safety Tanard Jackson, who told him his fourth suspension was not like the others, that it had nothing to do with marijuana. It's hard to buy any story from a guy in his position, regardless if you want to or not. Maybe it's true; maybe it's not. Bottom line: Whatever Jackson thinks, the NFL's ruling is the one that matters. They ruled he tested positive for violating the NFL's substance of abuse policy. It's over.

I'm willing to believe it had nothing to do with marijuana. You buy the wrong kind of cold medicine over the counter and the NFL will nail you. The problem is that he had zero margin for error, and so if he took the wrong kind of cough medicine that's 100% on him. He needed to treat every situation and action as if it was his last chance to make it back to the NFL, from how he put on his socks in the morning to every single thing he ate and drank.

I hope Tanard can get his life straightened out but he's not going to be wearing a B&G jersey on a NFL field on Sunday

all the best to him - I'm sorry he did not understand the commitment you need to 'make it' in the NFL

just another wasted opportunity - time to move on - he's not our concern any more
P A T I E N C E - Snyder needs to just 'butt out' and give Scot time to figure out who he needs in the FO, who he needs as the HC and what players fit what he thinks is a good system for this franchise - it's a mess & it will take time

Yeah anything is possible. Regardless, there is no way the Redskins can risk getting burned by him again.

I don't think Goodell is going to let him back in the league.

It seems hard to imagine he would, doesn't it?

My question is how do you get reinstated to get suspended again? Don't you have to continue to have clean tests prior to you being allowed to come back??

Someone like Jackson is basically getting tested about 10 times a month. So even in the short time he was back, there were plenty of chances to fail.
