The Redskins have re-signed free agent linebacker Rob Jackson, the team announced today (Twitter link). Tarik El-Bashir of CSNWashington.com (Twitter link) first broke word of the new deal between the two sides.
Jackson, who started 14 games for the Redskins in 2012, returned to a reserve role last season, and will likely play a similar part for the team in 2014. The 28-year-old had 19 tackles, a pair of sacks, and an interception in 2013, and contributed a handful of special teams tackles as well.
Prior to agreeing to return to Washington, Jackson reportedly visited with the Raiders earlier in free agency.
