Redskins' Dan Snyder: We got tired of seeing DeSean Jackson score on us

The Washington Redskins signed wide receiver DeSean Jackson to a three-year $28 million deal after the Philadelphia Eagles released him, and owner Dan Snyder has a simple reason as to why.

We got tired of seeing him score a lot of touchdowns against us and watching him on TV. So it’s great to have him here,” Snyder said Tuesday, via

Snyder also said that the decision was supported by general manager Bruce Allen and new head coach Jay Gruden.

“I think that when you look at the fact that the head coach and the general manager said this is the right move, the only thing I can do is support it,” the owner added. “That’s what I’ve done and it’s been great.”

Only time will tell if the move will pay off, but you have to think quarterback Robert Griffin III will take full advantage of Jackson. You can at least count on him to step up twice a year against the Eagles.
