As of early Tuesday afternoon, DeSean Jackson has left the Washington Redskins facility, and he still does not have a contract in hand. He hasn’t, however, left Washington.
Albert Breer is reporting that this is just a break period, and that the team still has high hopes that they can lock something up with the coveted free-agent at some point.
Sounds like DeSean Jackson is just taking a breather in leaving Redskins Park. There is hope in the building it could get done.

This situation has been back and forth since late Monday night. There were reports coming out of Washington and Philadelphia outlets that the two sides had come to an agreement, and a physical was all that was needed.
But we learned on Tuesday that that wasn’t even close to the case, and there is still a lot that needs to happen before these two come to any sort of agreement to land him for the offense.
It also doesn’t help that, all of a sudden, the San Francisco 49ers and Cleveland Browns have now thrown their names into the race, and have been actively trying to grab Jackson’s attention.
If anything, this has been quite the event to watch unfold, as we all expected.
