  Redskins | Unlikely to bring in safety    Thu Jul 10, 02:30 PM

The Washington Redskins are unlikely to bring in another safety to replace FS Tanard Jackson, according to a league source.

Footballguys view: Jackson is running out of chances but it sounds like Washington isn't worried about his absence short term. During camp, we may see them add someone depending on how the safeties look in padded practices. For now though it looks like things will stay as they stand.

Washington Redskins S Tanard Jackson needs a strong showing in training camp in order to make the 53-man roster, according to beat writer Ira Kaufman.

  Redskins | Competition at safety    Wed Jul 25, 10:34 PM
