D Jack gets whacked from 49ers roster

Posted by Danny O'Neil

There was a great deal of consternation in April 2007 when the Seahawks not only traded Darrell Jackson, but let him go to a team within the division by dealing him to the 49ers. Well, 11 months later, the 49ers let Jackson go, releasing him the day after signing free agent wide receiver Bryant Johnson.

Here's a link to the story from the San Francisco Chronicle.

This is a little bit of a surprise. The 49ers had the least productive offense in the league last season, but that was hardly Jackson's fault. At the same time, San Francisco targeted its offense for improvement and new coordinator Mike Martz must have decided Jackson wasn't going to be a fit.

well well..

it'll be nice to have him back but sign him cheap since he has to prove it again that he's reliable and he had work with Hasselback before - the only issue was his injury.. so this time Seahawks should offer him cheap deal to be back in the club like Jerry Rice..

I think Seahawks was dumb to let Jerry Rice go because the contract was soo cheap that his hands did the charm during 2005 season..

I think that's good chance to have DJ back but we can't count him 100% along with other WR especially Branch won't be back by season opener..

Your thoughts?

The subject's Darrell Jackson, but please don't get me going on Jerry Rice! What a disgrace the way the Seahawks dishonored our only HOF player, Steve Largent, by bringing his # 80 out of retirement! Jerry Rice couldn't even make the Bronco's roster the next season & the Bronco's didn't let him wear Rod Smith's #80 in training camp.

Ok, now the Niners are disgracing Rice by letting Issac Bruce wear 80. So its not only the hawks that do this.

I wouldn't mind D-Jack coming back if we don't resign Hackett. If Hackett comes back then no dice on a returning D-Jack.

Off topic: The whole No. 80 fiasco was Bob Whitsitt being Bob Whitsitt. He told Largent that Rice wanted to wear that number, and he told Rice that Largent wanted him to wear that number.

On topic: Jackson won't come back to the Seahawks because of ego. They didn't want to keep him, they didn't want to pay him the big bucks and they trade him. They could offer him the biggest contract of all the interested teams, but since it won't even come close to what he thought he should've gotten paid two years ago, he'll play the "it's about respect" card.

DJack finished his last game by dropping two catches on third down in our playoff game in Chicago. If he caught one of the two Hawks would probably won that game and advanced the the NFCC.

Big Ego, Big Drops, and sits out of practice for a hangnail. Hawks need to pass on him, but he wont come back as stated because he would have to swallow his pride.

I don't understand why anyone would seriously entertain the notion of having DJack back. Really. He doesn't have the potential of our current backups. He isn't a large receiver. His hands are intermitantly reliable. He thinks he deserves too much money. Do I really need to go on?

Rice was on the 2004 roster for a brief stay...not the 2005.
On another note I just read the Raiders traded a #2 round pick for DeAngelo Hall. Why don't we try that? DeAngelo would help our defense greatly.

The fact that Mike Martz didn't want to have anything to do with him tells you everything you need to know...

we don't need d jack, his only good year was super bowl. Every other season, the people would bash on all of our drops as a TEAM.

I think maybe the Seahawks are a good football team, but getting rid of the people who held us back from the superbowl was big. As Seahawks fans I think we were all amazed by that season, and we want to relive it, but the fact is, we probably would have never won that game with that roster (in that year, because now some of them are much improved).

Darrell Jackson is merely reaping what he sowed of late. no big surprise there - at all. He more than likely doesn't have the work ethic / character that SF's looking for in a new core offense.

Just my opinion. oh, and i agree: "Don't smoke crack."

He more than likely doesn't have the work ethic / character that SF's looking for in a new core offensive unit... @ least if they want to get anything done, that is... Darrell Jackson was as good as he was because of Matt. PERIOD. ... and the stats prove it.
All those franchise receiving records were because he had a gunslinger on the other end of the ball from him - nailing him with laser-beams.

Just my opinion. oh, and i agree: "Don't smoke crack."

Go 'Hawks!

Jackson was our number one receiver for a reason. Even if he has lost a step, he would be an improvement over Obomanu or Taylor as a fourth wr.

I'm on the fence on this one. While it would be nice to see Matt's main target back, I'm not so sure he's the type of influence in the locker room that Seattle wants. Ruskell traded him because of his attitude. It didn't have anything to do with his production. I seriously doubt the Seahawks will bring back DJack, however, if he did come back, there would be a slim possibility that he would even be close to returning to top form.
