The Tampa Bay Buccaneers have released safety Tanard Jackson.
Jackson was reportedly released after he failed a physical. He underwent off-season shoulder surgery, and was expected to be cleared to play on June 1st.
“I was a little shocked, but the person I am, I accept how it comes,” said Jackson. “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.”
Last season, he started 10 games after being reinstated from the NFL. He had 35 tackles and two interceptions for the Bucs in 2011.
He was suspended for the entire 2010 season after violating the NFL’s substance abuse policy. In his career with the Bucs, starting in 2007, he started 56 gales and had 239 tackles and 10 interceptions.
“What’s important to us as an organization is the growth of our football players and how they handle (things) on and off the field to become the best Buccaneer possible,” Dominik said Tuesday. “And that’s what we’re looking for.”
