Charles Woodson: Al Davis would bring DeSean Jackson in


The Oakland Raiders fans want wide receiver DeSean Jackson to return home, and Raiders defensive back Charles Woodson thinks Jackson would look good in the black and silver. Woodson also said that Jackson is the type of player Al Davis would’ve brought in.

“There is no question in my mind that this is the type of player that Al would bring in,” Woodson said, via NFL.com. “You hear about the off-field stuff but I don’t think Al would concern himself with that too much. I think Al would do his homework. But I think he would take a serious hard look, and if there was an opportunity I think he would bring that guy in.

“DeSean can stretch the field, and we know how much Al loved having guys that can stretch the field. So I don’t think there is any question he would bring him in.”

Jackson is also getting interest from teams like the Washington Redskins and the Buffalo Bills.

There will be millions shaking their head in disbelief.
