The Indianapolis Colts are one of a handful of teams to have not shown an interest in the recently released DeSean Jackson, proving that not everyone is falling head over heels in an effort to knock on his door first. While other teams may be involved in this It’s A Mad, Mad, Mad, Mad World style scramble for Jackson, the Colts are more reserved and much more content with what they have.
According to ESPN’s Colts writer Mike Wells, Indianapolis is happy with signing Hakeem Nicks and maybe drafting a player but won’t be pursuing Jackson this weekend.
"My answer would have likely been different if Jackson had been released prior to the Colts signing Nicks. General manager Ryan Grigson knows Jackson from their days together in Philadelphia and the Colts need to start finding another receiver to go with T.Y. Hilton because Reggie Wayne will only play for so much longer. But that’s not going to happen now that Nicks is a Colt."
While a premium has been put on receivers in recent years, that doesn’t mean everyone is going to rush out to grab one at any cost. Jackson is in his prime, but not everyone needs that at the moment it seems.
