DeSean Jackson Poised to Join The Redskins

DeSean Jackson may have been cut by the Eagles, however he wont be without a team for long and it looks strongly possible he will end up facing them this season wearing a Washington Redskins Shirt. Presently the reports are based on a number of Tweets from those supposedly in the know, however the deal does make sense for the Skins, who need to give RGIII more weapons if they are to compete in an admittedly below par NFC East.

DeSean Jackson is coming off of his best season ever and played his part in helping the Eagles to the Playoffs last season, where they lost narrowly to the Saints. If he can repeat his production from 2013 (1332 yards and 9 TD’s) then teaming him up with Pierre Garson and Alfred Morris will give Washington a nice attacking option, which will allow new Coach Jay Gruden to focus on other areas in the draft. This is important for Washington, given they are still suffering here from the Blockbuster RGIII trade up.

There will certainly be other suitors waiting in the wings if a deal is not reached, however we are sure that Jackson will want the chance to play against his old team, and show them they were wrong to release him.
