The Redskins re-signed him, and he said during spring practice that this time would be different in part because of the "humbling experience" of having to work in a warehouse during his suspension.

The 28-year-old Jackson was suspended twice while playing for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers: For four games in 2009 and for 12 months in September 2010.
