After Disappointing Year, 49ers' Jackson Is Waived

Matt Barrows, Sacramento Bee

Coach Mike Nolan called Jackson on Friday night to tell him that he would be waived, according to Jackson's agent. The call came on the same day the 49ers signed another wide receiver, former Arizona Cardinals wideout Bryant Johnson, to a one-year deal. "I always had a great deal of respect for Darrell as a player in the NFL," Nolan said in a statement Saturday. "I appreciated his dedication and work ethic during his season with the 49ers. He always had a positive attitude every day he came to work. While we are going in a different direction, I know he can still produce and be an asset to an NFL team this year."

The 49ers traded a 2007 fourth-round draft choice to the Seattle Seahawks to acquire Jackson in April. The eight-year veteran has nearly 7,000 receiving yards but struggled last year in the 49ers' 32nd-ranked offense. He finished the season with 497 receiving yards and three touchdowns, and dropped a number of passes. His agent, Brian Mooney, said Jackson was surprised by the decision but happy that it was made well before teams start meeting for minicamps.

"There are no hard feelings," Mooney said. "We appreciate them doing this when they did. It gives us a chance to hit the market aggressively."
