Although a starting job continues to elude him, Rob Jackson says he excited and hungry to get back to work with the Redskins after re-signing last week.
When the Redskins announced they re-signed linebacker Rob Jackson, the contract was widely applauded. But why exactly?
Linebacker Rob Jackson re-signed with the Washington Redskins, returning to the only NFL team he's played for.
Jackson played in 12 games for the Redskins last season, his sixth with the team, as the primary backup to Brian Orakpo. His only known visit was to Oakland, where the Raiders could not offer him a starting role.
If Brian Orakpo leaves the Redskins, Rob Jackson would be a logical candidate to replace him. So why hasn't the team started contract talks with him yet?
If the Redskins don't re-sign Brian Orakpo, should they pursue Pittsburgh's Jason Worilds?
Stay or Go: Will Rob Jackson stay with the Redskins or can he find a starting job somewhere else? Tandler and Tarik give their views.
One position where the Redskins are in pretty good shape heading into the 2014 season is outside linebacker. As long as Brian Orakpo is re-signed, that is.
Texas' oil and gas regulator has opened a new investigation into allegations that methane is contaminating North Texas water after residents complained that independent sampling by university researchers revealed high levels of the explosive gas in their residential wells, the state agency and scientists said.
The coaching staff saw improvement in White throughout the summer. He shook off the rust and was a better passer by the end of training camp. That doesn't mean he's ready for a starting job any time soon.
Jackson recently re-signed a one-year deal with the Redskins. The team and player were aware of the league's discipline before Jackson re-signed.
When Rob Jackson picked off Dallas Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo and sealed the Washington Redskins' NFC East-clinching victory Sunday night, the linebacker didn't immediately grasp the magnitude of his accomplishment.
Not until Rob Jackson wrapped his hands around another Tony Romo "oops" Sunday night could Washington Redskins fans begin to savor the moment.
Overall, life is pretty good for the Washington Redskins, riding a five-game winning streak into Sunday's game at the Philadelphia Eagles. Robert Griffin III is expected to play, they control their playoff fate and coach Mike Shanahan said that "every game that we go into now, we believe that we'll win."
Rob Jackson is a big man. So big, in fact, you wouldn't think a quarterback could miss the 6-foot-4, 266-pound outside linebacker camped in the middle of the field with all the subtlety of an elephant.
"I wouldn't say frustrated," he said. "It makes me a lot more hungry. It makes me capitalize on the playing time I do get."
The Raiders and Texans showed interest, Jackson said, but they saw him as backup.
