Jackson remains under contract to Redskins

Safety Tanard Jackson remains under contract to Redskins

Suspended safety Tanard Jackson remains under contract with the Redskins for the 2013 season, according to three people with knowledge of the situation.
Jackson signed a one-year contract with the Redskins last April after he was released by the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. He did not play at all last season because he was suspended indefinitely by the NFL last summer for violating the league’s substance abuse policy. He is eligible to be reinstated by the league in late August.
Jackson has appeared on some unofficial media lists as among the players eligible for unrestricted free agency this month. But the three people familiar with the matter said Friday that under NFL rules governing such issues, Jackson’s one-year contract with the Redskins rolls over into the upcoming season.
He does not count against the salary cap, one of those people said, as long as he remains under suspension.
