The San Francisco 49ers announced on Saturday that WR Darrell Jackson has been waived.

"I always had a great deal of respect for Darrell as a player in the NFL," said head coach Mike Nolan. "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."

Jackson joined the 49ers on a draft day trade with the Seattle Seahawks last April.

Jackson started 15 games for San Francisco in 2007 and finished third on the team with 497 receiving yards and fourth with 46 receptions. He also added three touchdowns.

In his nine-year career, Jackson has recorded 487 catches for 6,942 yards with 50 touchdowns in his eight-year career, which includes three 1,000-yard seasons.
