Redskins re-sign Rob Jackson

Rob Jackson missed the first four games of the 2013 season.

The Washington Redskins announced that they have re-signed outside linebacker Rob Jackson.

The seventh-year pro has spent all of his career with the Redskins, playing primarily as Brian Orakpo’s backup.

Jackson last season recorded 19 tackles, two sacks and an interception.

He had hoped to go somewhere that afford him the opportunity compete for a starting job, and drew a degree of interest from the Oakland Raiders and visited their facility earlier this month.

But instead he will return to Washington, which remained in need of depth at outside linebacker.

Terms of the deal were not immediately available.
