Redskins, DeSean Jackson Expected To Part Ways

Following three seasons with the organization, it sounds like DeSean Jackson‘s tenure with the Redskins is over. According to Mike Jones, Master Tesfatsion, and Liz Clarke of The Washington Post, it’s expected that the two sides “will part ways.” Meanwhile, the trio report that the Patriots, Eagles, Buccaneers, and Cowboys have inquired on the 30-year-old.

DeSean Jackson (Vertical)Following an underwhelming 2015 campaign, Jackson bounced back in 2016. In 15 games, the veteran hauled in 56 receptions for 1,005 yards and four touchdowns. In nine NFL seasons, the wideout has averaged 55 receptions, 980 yards, and five touchdowns in 14 games per season.

The Buccaneers would be an intriguing option, as Jackson could team up with Mike Evans to provide Jameis Winston with a pair of dynamic receiving options. The veteran would easily fit the role of the veteran long threat in New England, and he’d provide the Eagles with the receiver they’ve been seeking since they lost Jackson following the 2013 season. The Cowboys would be an intriguing option, but it’d be hard to envision Jackson replacing Dez Bryant and Cole Beasley from the starting lineup.

    Gilmore or Bouye would be a huge upgrade over what they have. And they can’t leave Porter out there either. His best days are behind him. They could sign/draft another CB(s) and safety(s) as well. It also looks like they’re going after Glennon. They need to draft a QB as well. And they still need a right tackle (Massie’s gotta go) and a couple of WR’s. The last draft was encouraging. Let’s hope Pace has another one in him.

      I think it would be a waste of money for the Bears to sign a big name CB. They are one of the worst teams in the NFC and won’t be competitive for years. Losing their QB, and best receiver when they were already bad and you want to spend a fortune on a CB?

        A lot of the problem was the QB. Although Mike Glennon is never what’s up, getting rid of Cutler will be a good thing. I’m just waiting to see if they have some other plan besides Glennon because that’s not a long term solution. If they do that as a bridge and draft Watson or Mahomes or something, maybe I could see it because they do have some intriguing pieces on both sides of the ball, as this has been a major rebuild and won’t get fixed overnight.

    Good…..won’t be worth the money he wants. He was an injury waiting to happen at a younger age. Won’t get better with age.

    It’s not his fault that stat stacker Cousins can’t throw the deep ball. Dude is still dynamic and would kill it with someone with a vertical offense and a QB who could execute it.
