The Tampa Bay Buccaneers have released safety Tanard Jackson after a failed physical, the team announced in a release.

The five-year veteran underwent offseason shoulder surgery but expected to play in June, according to the Tampa Bay Times.
Jackson was suspended for a year in 2010 for violating the NFL's substance abuse policy.
Jackson started 10 games and had 35 tackles and two interceptions last season.
The Buccaneers gave Jackson a one-year extension through 2012 last October.
