"He feels good running straight, it’s just sometimes coming out of cuts that he's sometimes tentative, but we're watching him," coach Jay Gruden said. "Obviously, we hoped he could run this week. That’s why we kept him out last week. It was good to see him out there pushing it. ... He's still probably not 100 percent yet. He's still working through a little bit of pain a little bit."

Jackson said, via the Washington Post. "I had teammates texting me and hitting me up, teammates that's still on the Eagles right now, like, 'What were they talking about you ain't a team guy, you don't get along with people in your locker room?'

DeSean Jackson has 'something special' for Eagles


by Dave Richard | Senior Fantasy Writer

Redskins jumped at chance to sign DeSean Jackson


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(4/8/2014) As soon as receiver DeSean Jackson became available, the Redskins moved fast. "He got released by Philadelphia, and as soon as that happened, it was, ‘Wow,’ for us," coach Jay Gruden said on The SiriusXM Blitz.

"Because obviously people around here have played against him a couple of times a year. Guys like that don’t come around very often and when they do, you have to do your due diligence, and you have to do whatever it takes to get the guy if you think he’s a fit. And we felt like he was a fit for us. So Bruce Allen [was] all systems go and made a play for him and [it] ended up working out to get him."

LeSean McCoy: DeSean Jackson 'will definitely be missed'


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(4/6/2014) Eagles running back LeSean McCoy was caught off guard by the team's release of receiver DeSean Jackson.

“I heard the rumors, but I was surprised for sure,” McCoy said, per Fox Sports. “I mean, he’s probably one of our biggest playmakers that we had. He can make plays at any given time. He can control the game. He’s probably the biggest deep threat in the NFL. To lose a guy like that is definitely tough. He’ll definitely be missed. Obviously every move is made for a reason.

“The guys upstairs made the decision for a reason. When you do things like that, you have backup plans in your mind. You don’t let one of the top wide receivers go and then not have anything to back it up. I’m sure coach (Chip) Kelly and (general manager) Howie (Roseman), they’ll be able to take care of it.”

Jackson signed a three-year contract with the Redskins.


Report: DeSean Jackson cursed out Chip Kelly in front of team


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com

"Jackson was not very well liked by his teammates, was blatantly insubordinate, with temper tantrums cussing out Kelly several times in front of the team," the report said.

Jackson "pushed the NFL rookie coach the way 'a child would test boundaries,' and was more concerned with his rap label than he was about winning football games," the report added.

by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com

DeSean Jackson: Getting released 'a humbling experience'


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(4/2/2014) New Redskins receiver DeSean Jackson told reporters that getting released by the Eagles was "a humbling experience" given that he was coming off a career year. But he said he believes his best is yet to come.

Jackson didn't want to elaborate on the circumstances of his departure from Philly.

"Honestly, man, I'm not really here to address that," he said. "I feel people that really know me and know what type of player I am, they respect me and they know I'm a team guy and I just go out there and put in on the line," he said.

Jackson said he's excited about joining this offense. New coach Jay Gruden "has a lot of toys to mess around with," Jackson said. "Some great things are going on in Washington."


Why DeSean Jackson is a good fit for Redskins


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(4/2/2014) DeSean Jackson's skill set will mesh with the Redskins' offense and quarterback Robert Griffin III, according to ESPN.com. "Griffin's ability to throw the deep ball sits well with Jackson's penchant for catching them in the past," the report said. "It's what Jackson does best, and it's why he scares a defense so much. 

"Griffin might not have a laser arm like Michael Vick -- few do -- but it's a very good arm and it's certainly one that should connect with Jackson down the field. Oh, there's also Griffin's ability to extend plays with a group as fast as this one. That, too, should lead to headaches for opposing defensive coordinators in the week leading up to facing this offense."

Jackson joins wideouts Pierre Garcon and Andre Roberts and tight end Jordan Reed to give Griffin four dangerous targets. The improved passing game also should open up running lanes for Alfred Morris.


DeSean Jackson gets $16 million guaranteed
