Redskins WR DeSean Jackson returns to OTA's, explains time missed
|by Ruben Palacios | Staff Writer|
|(6/3/15) Redskins wide receiver DeSean Jackson was missing in action during last week's organized team activities, but he's made his presence felt this week, per The Washington Post.
Jackson explained he missed all of last week because of personal issues he had to tend to and that he communicated with his coaches why he would miss the time.
“I had personal things I had to do back home,” Jackson said. “I’m a veteran in this league, going on my eighth year. Communication with my head coach and the guys here, they knew about it. Like I said, I had things I had to do, I was obligated to do back home in California. I’m here now, and I’m happy to be here with my teammates, and they’ve been putting in some great work, so I’m just trying to catch up and get back in the swing of things. But I had things I had to handle.”
Jackson, who led the team with 1,169 receiving yards and six touchdowns last year, said he was not phased by the time missed, and that his familiarity with the offense would help him bounce right back into the flow of things.
“I’m very familiar with the offense, the system, so it’s not like I have to re-learn something that I already know. I came back, I’m in the flow of things. I’m still starting wide receiver on this team. I’m just happy to be here, happy to be putting the work in and being around the fellows again.”
Redskins WR DeSean Jackson: I will join team next week
|by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com|
|(5/26/15) Redskins veteran wide receiver DeSean Jackson is not participating Tuesday in OTAs, but he has stated that he will join the team next week, per SiriusXM NFL Radio.
Jackson proved productive in his first year with Washington in 2014, snagging 56 passes for 1,169 yards and six touchdowns.
Redskins leave RG3 off of letter to season-ticket owners
|by Jason Butt | CBSSports.com|
|(2/5/15) Either it was a simple mistake or an indication of how the Redskins truly feel about quarterback Robert Griffin III.
In a letter sent to season-ticket holders, the Redskins thanks fans for their support while mentioning the core group of players that are poised to lead the organization back into the winning column. One notable name was left off.
"Head Coach Jay Gruden, new General Manager Scot McCloughan, and Defensive Coordinator Joe Barry will lead a nucleus of Ryan Kerrigan, DeSean Jackson, plus Pro Bowlers Trent Williams and Alfred Morris. The Redskins are poised to rebound next season!" the letter read, via The Washington Post.
Griffin, the Redskins' No. 2 overall pick in 2012, was not included in this group.
Griffin enjoyed phenomenal success as a rookie, throwing for 3,200 yards, 20 touchdowns and five touchdowns while running for 815 yards and seven touchdowns. Following an ACL tear during the 2012 postseason, Griffin hasn't been the same. After returning from a dislocated ankle this past season, Griffin was benched in favor of Colt McCoy.
Griffin played in nine games in 2014 and threw for 1,694 yards, four touchdowns and six interceptions.

|(12/28/14) Redskins wide receiver DeSean Jackson scored his six touchdown of the season during the Redskins’ 44-17 loss to the Cowboys Sunday.

The touchdown was the lone highlight for Jackson, who finished the game with two receptions for 86 yards on three targets.
Redskins' DeSean Jackson goes off for 126 yards vs. former club
|by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com|
|(12/20/14) Redskins wide receiver DeSean Jackson turned in an impressive performance against his former club, registering his sixth 100-yard game of the season in Saturday's 27-24 victory over Philadelphia.
Jackson came down with a 51-yard reception in the first quarter and a 55-yard grab in the third quarter. Both catches came while being covered by Bradley Fletcher. He was targeted six times and finished with four catches for 126 yards. Jackson surpassed the 1,000-yard mark for the fourth time in his career. He has 54 catches for 1,083 and five touchdowns this season.
Washington will face Dallas in Week 17.
|DeSean Jackson's first season in Washington was a success for Fantasy owners, and hopefully he can build on that performance this year. Jackson had 56 catches for 1,169 yards and six touchdowns on 94 targets. His production declined from his career year in Philadelphia in 2013, but that was expected. Still, he showed he can still be a viable Fantasy option, and he had double digits in Fantasy points in a standard league eight times. He will again remain the No. 1 receiver for the Redskins, and we consider him a solid No. 2 Fantasy receiver in all leagues. He's worth drafting in Round 4 in standard formats and Round 5 in PPR leagues.
