On Monday, the Washington Redskins will be the first team that will get a crack at speaking to free-agent wide receiver, DeSean Jackson, who was abruptly released by the Philadelphia Eagles last Friday amid gang-tie allegations and the team’s failure to find a willing trade partner.
But how serious will the team be about meeting whatever price Jackson will ask for, which is expected to be huge?
According to Pro Football Talk, they might not be as serious as was originally thought:
A third source tells the reporters that the team will only wind up with Jackson “if he’ll come on the cheap,” however, which suggests a different description than “all in” when it comes to their interest level.
If this is the case, and Daniel Snyder isn’t fully prepared to cut Jackson an enormous check, then they might as well take themselves out of the running right now.
Jackson, despite whatever allegations are tied to him at the moment, is one of the top-tier wide receivers in the game in the prime of his career, and won’t settle for anything less than the max.
