The Redskins will meet with their impending free agents at next week's Combine.
That includes Chris Baker, Vernon Davis, Pierre Garcon and DeSean Jackson as well restricted free agents Will Compton and Chris Thompson. Jackson has expressed interest in remaining with the Redskins, though the team is "lukewarm" about that possibility, according to the Washington Post. Garcon and Jackson are both expected to command $9-11 million annually. It's a near certainty that at least one will move on. Feb 24 - 2:53 PM

Impending free agent DeSean Jackson was impressed by Carson Wentz's performance as a rookie.

"He killed it," said Jackson. "He had a heck of a year. He showed he can do it all. He has the intangibles of being a big-time quarterback." Jackson thinks he still has 4-6 good years left in him and wouldn't mind ending his career where it started. "I mean, it’s definitely a great story and ending," said Jackson when asked about a return to Philadelphia. "It all sounds good, but you never know until the final decision is made." The Eagles, Buccaneers and Rams should be among Jackson's top suitors when he hits the open market.

ESPN's Josina Anderson reports the Bucs are a possible landing spot for impending free agent DeSean Jackson.

Speaking on Adam Schefter's podcast, Jackson said returning to Philadelphia would be a "great story," but he will be looking to get all he can out of this trip to free agency. With a quarterback on the rise and not much else besides Mike Evans in the passing game, the Bucs make a ton of sense as a potential landing spot, especially since Anderson also reports Jackson has "existing rapport" with Jameis Winston. Jackson has also been linked with the Rams.

Impending free agent DeSean Jackson said he'd like to re-sign with the Redskins.

"My family and my house, I have everything here and I don't want to be in a transaction and move," said D-Jax. "Hopefully we can make it work." Multiple reports have stated the Redskins plan on moving on, however, and Jackson is sure to attract interest. The Eagles and Rams have been linked to Jackson early on. More suitors should emerge as the March 9 free agency period approaches.

Pewter Report’s Scott Reynolds expects the Bucs to have interest in free agent DeSean Jackson.

The Bucs badly need to upgrade Jameis Winston’s supporting cast outside of Mike Evans. Jackson’s skill set would be a solid fit, but he's going to have a lot of suitors. The Bucs are fully expected to move on from Vincent Jackson.
Feb 10 - 7:47 PM

The Washington Post reports the Redskins view free agent DeSean Jackson as "too inconsistent."

Reporter Mike Jones expects the team to let Jackson move on. For his part, Jackson has said he fully intends to test the open market. Now on the wrong side of 30, Jackson will likely be playing elsewhere in 2017.
Feb 9 - 5:18 PM

Impending free agent DeSean Jackson said he plans to "test the market."

"This is the first time in my career I'll hit the free-agent market," Jackson said, "so I'm definitely intrigued about seeing what's going to happen and test the market and see what's going on." Jackson made those comments in December, and the Redskins reportedly have not discussed a new deal with him since the end of the season, suggesting he still plans to hit free agency. If Washington wants Jackson back, they will have to beat out plenty of competition including perhaps the Rams and the Eagles, who drafted Jackson in 2008.

ESPN's Alden Gonzalez considers impending free agent DeSean Jackson a "natural fit" for the Rams.

Jackson grew up in Los Angeles and the Rams just hired his former offensive coordinator Sean McVay as head coach. Meanwhile the Rams are looking for a top wideout to replace Kenny Britt, who is expected to sign elsewhere in free agency. Alshon Jeffery, Terrelle Pryor, Pierre Garcon and Kenny Stills are a few of the other big-name wideouts slated to hit the open market this offseason.

DeSean Jackson caught 2-of-5 targets for 34 yards in the Redskins' Week 17 loss to the Giants.

The impending free agent heads to the open market with the fifth 1,000-yard (1,005, to be exact) campaign of his nine-year career. Occasionally slowed by shoulder issues, Jackson had some 2016 slumps, but looked like the same game-breaking playmaker he's always been, averaging 17.9 yards per catch. Now 30, if Jackson has lost a step, it isn't evident on Sundays. Nevertheless, a 30-plus wideout reliant on speed could encounter a quieter market than he's hoping for.
Jan 1 - 7:45 PM

DeSean Jackson (jaw) is practicing in full for Week 17.

He'll be ready to roll against the Giants and has topped 100 yards in three straight.
Wed, Dec 28, 2016 12:51:00 PM

DeSean Jackson (jaw) is day to day.

Coach Jay Gruden made the disclosure on Monday. Jackson briefly played through the issue on Saturday, which would seemingly give him a good chance of suiting up against the Giants. His status will be updated no later than Wednesday.

DeSean Jackson caught 5-of-7 targets for 114 yards in the Redskins' Week 16 win over the Bears.

Jackson did all of his damage in the first half, failing to catch his lone target after the break. He missed a big chunk of the second half with a jaw injury but returned in the fourth quarter with the game well in hand. Jackson has now gone over 100 yards in three straight games, a new career high. Jackson was roasting Bears LCB Tracy Porter and whoever else was lined up across from him all day. He could have easily had a 96-yard touchdown, but Kirk Cousins barely over-threw him. Jackson later drew a long defensive pass interference against Porter on the same series. Jackson will be a boom-or-bust WR3 next week at home against the Giants.

DeSean Jackson caught 7-of-10 targets for 111 yards in the Redskins' 26-15, Week 15 loss to the Panthers on Monday night.

Jackson made a pair of sensational sliding catches on the sideline, but his night wasn't all roses. He had a terrible drop on a short 3rd-and-4 pass to kill one drive with the Redskins trailing 20-9 and trying to make a move on the Panthers. It just never happened for Washington in this one. Jackson has now topped 100 yards in three of his last four games after not doing so from Weeks 2-11. Weather permitting, Jackson will be in a good spot next week at the Bears.
Tue, Dec 20, 2016 12:11:00 AM

DeSean Jackson caught 3-of-4 targets for 102 yards and a touchdown in the Redskins' Week 14 win over the Eagles.

Jackson made the play of the day in the third quarter, adjusting to an under-thrown deep ball to score an 80-yard touchdown. Coming back to the ball like Willie Mays, Jackson spun Leodis McKelvin around, and was off to the races. Healthy, Jackson has put himself back on the WR3 radar over the past month. The Panthers are an attackable Week 15 matchup.
Sun, Dec 11, 2016 05:44:00 PM

ESPN Eagles reporter Tim McManus reports contract-year WR DeSean Jackson would be "intrigued" by the idea of signing with the Eagles in the offseason.

The Redskins have to be loving all of this talk about one of their players potentially re-joining a division rival as they're in the thick of the playoff race. But McManus' colleague, Adam Schefter, reported over the weekend that the Eagles are expected to "make a strong push" to bring Jackson back to Philly after he spent his first six years there before being cut by Chip Kelly. Coach Doug Pederson and GM Howie Roseman were in Philly during Jackson's heyday.
