NFL teams had an unexpected treat in this season’s free agent class when the Eagles cut wide receiver DeSean Jackson. It’s not every day a healthy top-flight receiver coming off a career year becomes a free agent. Reports that Jackson’s butting heads with Eagles coach Chip Kelly were to blame for the wide-out’s sudden unemployment coincided with the NJ.com story that linked Jackson to gang activity in Los Angeles. Talk about bad publicity.
Despite Jackson’s checkered past and questionable taunting selection, Jackson has been as professional as they come.
Leave it to D.C., the 15-year champion of obnoxious signings, to have heat flashes and chase Jackson when he flew into town yesterday. Yet again the Redskins’ press corps proves itself more persistent than the White House’s.
Jackson was seen at a club last night with Redskin players. But who is that bama wearing sunglasses indoors, in between all of those successful pro athletes?
Hanging with Wale, who’s as bad luck as they come, is a bad omen. Last night, he got into shoving match with some dude who was heckling him on Twitter during the Monday Night Raw taping.
Allow me to remind everyone that Rick Ross had two seizures and has dropped two awful albums since Wale joined his label.
As for the Skins, they would be adding a lethal weapon in Jackson. The receiver thrived last season, racking up 1,332 yards receiving and nine touchdowns on 82 receptions in Chip Kelly’s offense.
If the Skins do sign Jackson to a huge deal, they’re taking on a massive financial risk, considering RG3 will be playing amid doubts he’ll ever return to his pre-injury form. That doesn’t even factor in how Jay Gruden will act as a brand new head coach. The sole comforting thought for Redskins fans: Gruden coached Andy Dalton to just throw to AJ Green, which you’d have to assume will be his instruction to RG3. That is, if RG3 and Dan Snyder aren’t telling him what to do.
In case you sign here, Welcome to Washington, DeSean.
Just steer clear from Wale.
