DeSean Jackson close to Washington Redskins deal

Published Add your comment

The race for DeSean Jackson looks like it could be coming to a swift conclusion.

The Washington Redskins put themselves into pole position to sign the wide receiver when they became the first team to have the 27-year old take a visit with them.

The meetings between the parties couldn't be going better for the Redskins, and it's being reported that the two sides could be nearing a deal. 

From the Washington Post today:

"The Washington Redskins and wide receiver DeSean Jackson have made progress towards a deal, but the two sides have yet to finalize the agreement, two people with knowledge of the situation said. . .

One person, speaking on the condition of anonymity because he was not authorized to comment on the matter, said Tuesday morning that the sides were believed to be 'getting close.' But as of that time, Jackson had yet to sign a contract, a second person said."

This would be a good move for both sides, as Jackson would become a number one target in a city where he can start again and become loved. While the Redskins, and in particular quarterback Robert Griffin III, get a real threat on the sidelines and a man who can boost their offense no end.

Jackson has been having fun during his time in the capital. He's been pictured on a night out with possible new teammates Pierre Garcon and DeAngelo Hall as well as rapper Wale.

Jackson is spending today with the teams coaches and owner Dan Snyder will be hoping he can get a deal sorted before the receiver jumps on a plane out of DC.
