Well that certainly changes things. The 49ers have announced they will be releasing Darrell Jackson on Monday.
After dealing a 4th round pick to the Seahawks last draft, many of us expected big things from Jackson. While he was solid at times, the drops definitely drove us crazy. Jackson was tied for ninth in the league in drops with seven but it often seemed like it was happening a lot more often.
The release of Darrell Jackson leaves the 49ers with Arnaz Battle, Isaac Bruce, Bryant Johnson, Jason Hill and Ashley Lelie competing for starting time. And of course this likely alters things a little bit in terms of the 49ers potentially drafting a wide receiver. With no dead money coming out of this, I can't say I'm all that disappointed.
