Jets GM John Idzik apparently not sold on DeSean Jackson

NFL teams are scrambling to try and get the lead in the DeSean Jackson sweepstakes. Apparently the New York Jets aren’t amongst those teams interested in competing for Jackson’s services because general manager John Idzik wasn’t sold on him.

From ESPN New York:

They held internal discussions on Jackson, with offensive coordinator Marty Mornhinweg giving his blessing. Mornhinweg, who coached him with the Philadelphia Eagles, told people in the organization that Jackson — known for his bad-boy reputation — wouldn’t be a problem in the locker room. That apparently wasn’t enough to sway Idzik, who reportedly hadn’t reached out to Jackson’s agent as of Saturday.

While Jackson pairing up with former quarterback Michael Vick is appealing, he isn’t necessarily a fit for the Jets and what they need going forward. Even with Mornhinweg’s blessings, it is a safe move on the Jets part to avoid a potential locker room distraction.
