DeSean Jackson rumors: Cleveland Browns could trade for DeSean Jackson


The Philadelphia Eagles are still looking at what their options are when it comes to the future of wide receiver DeSean Jackson, as the team is very seriously looking at trading or releasing him before the season starts. There remains the slimmest of slim possibilities that he returns to the team in 2014 but the likelihood that he’s moved has really never been higher.

Aside from the question of whether Jackson will be traded or cut, everyone is wondering where he will end up. So far the Carolina Panthers, San Francisco 49ers and New York Jets have all been mentioned in connection to Jackson with varying degrees of interest. But one team we haven’t heard from yet but might are the Cleveland Browns.

According to ESPN Insider Field Yates, the Browns are one of a small group of teams that make sense as a landing spot for Jackson. Yates notes that whatever young quarterback that steps in would love to have an arsenal that includes Jordan Cameron, Josh Gordon, Andrew Hawkins and Jackson.

Of course, the Browns have the assets to give up as well, being armed with two first-round draft picks and the ambition to get exciting right now rather than later. They’re not a lock to land him by any means, but Jackson to the Browns is more than just an interesting idea.
