According to a report on NFL.com, Buccaneers S Tanard Jackson, who was suspended indefinitely (but, at the very least, for a year) after violating the league’s substance abuse policy and program for the third time, will check into a rehab center in the near future.
Steve Wyche writes Tampa Bay will keep Jackson, even though his suspension hurt the Buccaneers last Sunday. In his place, they had to start rookie seventh-round pick Cody Grimm, and he didn’t play very well, allowing Pittsburgh’s Mike Wallace to catch a 46-yard TD pass from Charlie Batch.
Andy suggested last week that Tampa Bay GM Mark Dominik might want to place a call to Ken Hamlin, but Hamlin re-signed with Baltimore today, so that option is out the window.
Coach Raheem Morris has said, though, the Bucs will continue to look for free agents who can help minimize Jackson's absence.
