DeSean Jackson rumors: Kansas City Chiefs reach out with interest

Earlier on Friday afternoon, the Kansas City Chiefs were reported as not having a whole lot of interest in now free agent wide receiver DeSean Jackson, but things have apparently changed in the short time between the latest report from Arrowhead and now.

While Terez Paylor never definitively stated the Chiefs weren’t interested in Jackson, 610 Sports in Kansas City is reporting that the Chiefs have indeed reached out to Jackson with likely interest in bringing him in.


Reaching out to Jackson doesn’t really mean there is legitimate interest as the Chiefs have obvious reasons for wanting to kick the tires on Jackson. Andy Reid drafted Jackson and may know his background better than others.

But the Chiefs have little money to splurge with and the supposed character issues may end up being too much for the Chiefs to want to deal with. There’s also a deep class at receiver this year, which means a much cheaper replacement could be found.

    Good deal. Hopefully they can get something done.

    Sorry but NONE in this class is gonna be anything compared to Desean in their first 3-4 years. This guy is clearly a top 5 WR in the NFL. Most catches over 20 yards in the NFL more then Calvin Johnson. This guys is a MUST. Andy work your magic, you’ve been a father figure for him when Desean lost his father. Get him in Red!! Bowe, Desean, Charles, Dressler WOW thats a squad if you ask me!

    He can stretch the field, has good hands and is a proven commodity. If Denver didn’t break the cap with the money they dropped in free agency, then I believe KC can fit him under the salary cap. Big Red knows this young man better than anyone, if he thinks this is the reciever that will make teams look past D-Bowe and open up the offense, then I’m all for making a run at him.
