DeSean Jackson finally reports to Redskins


by Dave Richard | Senior Fantasy Writer
(4/14/2014) Redskins receiver DeSean Jackson reported to the Redskins for the offseason training program on Monday. He's a week late because of a previously scheduled vacation. The Washington Post noted that Jackson didn't miss any on-field work and only missed a week of conditioning and strength training. 

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."


DeSean Jackson's absence not a big deal


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(4/7/2014) Receiver DeSean Jackson was one of the few Redskins not to show up for the start of voluntary workouts Monday, reports ESPN.com. But according to the website, Jackson told team officials before signing his contract that "he had a previously planned vacation and would be in town next week."

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
(4/4/2014) The Eagles released receiver DeSean Jackson because of his me-first attitude and his insubordination toward coach Chip Kelly, sources told CBS Philly. "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.

The Redskins quickly signed the 27-year-old wideout to a three-year contract, giving him $16 million guaranteed. He'll face the Eagles twice per year within the NFC East.


Robert Griffin III to keep No. 10, DeSean Jackson to switch


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(4/3/2014) New Redskins receiver DeSean Jackson has worn No. 10 his entire career, the same number as quarterback Robert Griffin III. After semi-jokingly saying he might get Griffin to change numbers, Jackson agreed to start fresh with a new jersey number, reports the Washington Post.

It's unclear what number Jackson will wear.


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


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(4/2/2014) DeSean Jackson's three-year contract with the Redskins is worth $24 million, including $16 million guaranteed, reports ESPN's Adam Schefter. The 27-year-old receiver, who was cut by the Eagles last Friday, gets to face his old team twice per year.

by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
