DeMaurice Smith went on to say: "We've always been aggressive about protecting the integrity of our players, especially where we believe or think that a team may have done something that is impermissible, and that's something that we're gonna look at." Jackson signed with the Washington Redskins Wednesday for a deal worth $24 million, $16 million guaranteed.
