The DeSean Jackson experiment in Washington may be coming to an end. The 30-year-old speedy wide receiver is a free agent and he is not likely to return. When Washington first acquired him, they were supposed to boast one of the best wide receiver corps, along with Pierre Garcon. They did make the playoffs a few seasons ago, but did not have much to show for it.
He is rumored to be drawing interest from the Cowboys and Patriots. A guy like Jackson can fit into any offense because he can take the top off the defense. He’s a home run TD catch kind of guy. But the flip side of that coin is that he won’t give you a whole lot underneath.
Along with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, the Philadelphia Eagles, New England Patriots and the Dallas Cowboys also have inquired about wide receiver DeSean Jackson, according to a person with knowledge of the situation. Barring any unforeseen circumstances, it’s expected that the Redskins and Jackson will part ways, multiple people with knowledge of the situation have indicated.
