Anyway, it does sound like he has a lot of support from Haslett and Morris. He's certainly got a much better opportunity to turn his life around than a lot of people in his situation might have. It would be great to see him do it as a Redskin this year.



I hope it was, because otherwise, I don't understand a 2 year suspension. I've heard rumblings that he was supposed to be reinstated back in March. Why wait the 2 additional months? Gotta imagine 2 additional months of being involved with the team (not to mention the minicamps just completed) would have helped our planning.


There is no "supposed to be reinstated," they only say the earliest they can apply to be reinstated which just starts the process. Two months is actually pretty reasonable to work through the process.


I think your response presumes that the application to be reinstated began two months ago. I'm not sure that is the case. I don't know when it began, I only saw that it was supposed to have been done (i.e. he be reinstated) back in March. According to WaPo (Link below), he was eligible for reinstatement last August. I can only assume he applied for reinstatement at or around that time. If so, I'm still curious why it took 9 months rather than 7. Especially which 2 months of difference we are talking about.

He might get resigned as the skins might want to redo his deal. Don't remember how much he signed for 2 years ago, but it might have had too much guaranteed money.

Except that he was eligible to be reinstated a year ago. I have to believe this delay is more from the Mara/Goodell bag of dirty tricks.



Tanard should have signed with the Seachickens. In that secondary, he would've served a 1 game suspension, max.

:roll: the guy needs to get a grip - any doubt he'll 'claim' he's being picked on - see ya
The Redskins need to have a plan for how to put a product on the field that will be consistently competitive and they need to stick with that plan - it's taken years to become as bad as we are and it will be years getting out of it

If anyone thinks we held on to him this long just to cut him, and he is still starter material needs a reality check. He is either no where near football shape, or we are working a deal that fits the risk... not sure what everyone is getting so worked up about, he hasn't even played one snap in B&G!!!

Fair enough, but as for me I was addressing the statement that he was "supposed to be reinstated back in March." I wasn't validating the March date.

From the article: "Jackson was suspended indefinitely by the league in August 2012 for violating the sport’s substance-abuse policy. He has not played for the past two seasons because of the suspension. Jackson initially was eligible for reinstatement last August."

As I said, there is no "supposed" to be reinstated. He was not suspended for a definite period, he was able to apply in August, but the suspension was "indefinite." BTW, the word "March" is nowhere on the link.

As much as I hate Goodell, I don't have a problem with his being slow to re-instate these idiots.

No idea who these "worked up" people are you're referring to. It's a Redskins board and we're discussing a (now former) Redskin player. I didn't see anyone say he would be a starter, I only saw people, including myself, note that we're desperate at safety and the more options the better. I personally also was concerned about our ability to trust him not to get suspended again even if he did stay and win the job given his proven inability to stay away from drugs for a few years in exchange for being a millionaire.

I know. I just found it a little too much of a coincidence that this particular player was suspended for an extra year, where previous indefinite suspensions ended after one season, when the player didn't play for a divisional opponent of the vagiants. We'll see how long Blackmon's suspension lasts.

Exactly what I was thinking, after reading his post.

It's a valid point certainly supported by empirical data
