SANTA CLARA, Calif. (AP) -The San Francisco 49ers waived receiver Darrell Jackson on Saturday after one unproductive season with the club.
Jackson joined the 49ers in a trade last April after eight seasons with the Seattle Seahawks. He made at least one catch in each of his 15 starts for San Francisco, but finished the season with just 46 catches for 497 yards and three touchdowns in the NFL's least productive offense.
``I always had a great deal of respect for Darrell,'' 49ers coach Mike Nolan said. ``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 signed longtime Rams receiver Isaac Bruce to a two-year, $6 million deal last month. Jackson would have made $4 million next season in salary and bonuses.
