The person says the Redskins were one of several teams interested in Jackson, who was released Friday by the Philadelphia Eagles after a career-best season and amid reports of off-the-field concerns. The person spoke to The Associated Press Monday on condition of anonymity because the Redskins had not announced the visit.

When Jackson was released, he issued a statement denying he was associated with gang activity.
