The Redskins have re-signed outside linebacker Rob Jackson, Matt Brooks of the Washington Post reports.
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.
