The San Francisco 49ers have been wishy-washy when it comes to their interest in free agency wide receiver DeSean Jackson, but they may be finally taking up a true position when it comes to their real level of interest in signing the former Eagles standout.

According to Adam Schefter from ESPN, the Niners have real interest in Jackson but it’s guarded interest.

The gang connections that Jackson apparently has don’t bode well for his signing with the Niners and that’s why they’re guarded. While there’s no concrete proof that Jackson is connected in anyway to any sort of west coast gang, the Niners lying on the west coast in near California gangland is not comforting.

But the notion that Jackson is a gang member is fading fast and the Niners interest is something to take very seriously moving forward.
