A quick look at the AFC and NFC East..
- Rich Tandler and Tarik El-Bashir of CSNWashington.com wonder if DeSean Jackson can match his Eagles production with the Redskins. El-Bashir believes that Jackson can pull it off since he’s only 27 and in the prime of his career. Tandler, on the other hand, doesn’t think that the Redskins are necessarily looking for Jackson to match his 2013 catches and yards. What the Redskins will expect out of him will be big yards after the catch, even if he’s not getting the same number of touches.
- Florida State pass rusher Brandon Jenkins went from a draft steal to a longshot to making the Redskins‘ roster, writes Mike Jones of the Washington Post. Washington coaches were over the moon when they landed Jenkins in the fifth round of last year’s draft, but he hasn’t shown much of anything so far.
- Jets inside linebacker David Harris gets a lot of flack thanks to his contract, but Brian Costello of the New York Post expects him to play hard in his walk year to come away with a new deal that will pay him heavily and won’t be criticized. Last season Harris led the Jets with 124 tackles and had two sacks while Pro Football Focus ranked him as the 18th best inside linebacker out of 55 that played at least 25% of their team’s snaps.
