With the release of now former Philadelphia Eagles wide receiver DeSean Jackson, the NFL world is in a frenzy to see where he’ll land next, who makes the best fit and which teams are hanging back in the race with their interest boarding the bare minimum amount.
One team that seems to make sense as a landing spot for Jackson are the Kansas City Chiefs. Head coach Andy Reid drafted Jackson and coached him until he was fired before last season started. According to Chiefs beat writer Terez Paylor, the chances the Chiefs sign Jackson are low at the moment.
Paylor also points out that the Chiefs are a bit strapped for cash at the moment, at least in comparison to what Jackson would want and command, plus the draft may provide a player like Jackson sans the alleged off-field gang relations.
The end all for the Chiefs decision making process will be Andy Reid. He drafted Jackson and vetted him in college, so he may know better than anyone if Jackson’s problems are new or if they’ve gotten progressively worse.
