NFL Rumors: Redskins, Bills expressing interest in DeSean Jackson


 

DeSean Jackson is a free agent and free to sign with and NFL team after the Philadelphia Eagles released him after he had a career-year in 2013. A number of teams have been connected to Jackson, but Ian Rapoport tweets the Washington Redskins and Buffalo Bills are two wildcards in the Jackson sweepstakes.

If the Bills are able to get Jackson in at their price it would allow them to look at other positions in the first round of the 2014 NFL draft and could be in position to take the best player available rather than targeting a player such as Mike Evans.

The Redskins don’t have a first round pick this year so adding a player the caliber of Jackson would be a nice haul and give Robert Griffin III a legit weapon in the passing game.
