DeSean Jackson visiting Redskins on Monday

Despite some problems on the field with certain members of the Washington Redskins defense, recently released wide receiver DeSean Jackson is considering joining the team and staying in the NFC East where he would face his former Philadelphia Eagles twice a year.

Dianna Marie Russini of NBC News4 in Washington D.C. passed along the news on Saturday night that Jackson has a visit with the Redskins scheduled for early next week.

Jackson would be an obvious improvement to the Redskins receiving corp and give the team a weapon on the outside that they currently lack, so their interest comes as no real surprise.

While they are one of Jackson’s first visits, there are at least nine teams who are believed to have interest so it would be a surprise if Jackson didn’t take his time choosing a new home.

    He’s obviously using Washington to draw a better deal from Oakland. Washington? let’s be serious. The Raiders have Matt Schaub, and Washington has RG3 and out hobbling around hoping his need doesn’t blowout on him again. If Oakland doesn’t get him it’s because Oakland didn’t want him. That’s the end of story. DeShawn Jackson grew up a raider fan and reached out to Oakland prior to his release as he obviously wants to join the Raiders. It’s in the hands of Reggie McKenzie at this point. Hopefully the nation along with Charles Woodson being loud and proud about signing DeShawn Jackson will help influence Reggie’s decision
