Washington Redskins in for All-Star wide receiver

It still feels slightly odd saying it but DeSean Jackson is a free agent. 

The former Philadelphia Eagles all-star receiver was released last week after the franchise couldn't find a team to make a trade with.

And it seems like the Eagles loss could be set to be a big gain for their NFC East rivals the Washington Redskins.

The Redskins get the first crack at looking to entice the three time Pro-Bowl wideout to their organization, as Jackson is visiting the facilities today before any other side.

Redskins cornerback DeAngelo Hall has previously tweeted how much he would love to have the receiver join him, and today with Jackson on the visit he was up to it again.

"Game changing decision about to be made. I love my City!!!!! #757 #DMV #HTTR4Life" he tweeted earlier.

If the 'Skins actually did get a deal done then their fans would definitely be as excited as Hall is now.

Rumours abound that the Eagles released Jackson because of possible gang ties. The 27-year old has been seen flashing gang signs, one famously on Monday Night Football, but it seems like that narrative is just too convenient.

Philly head coach Chip Kelly was genuinely unhappy with his former players work ethic and Jackson's lack of professionalism and attitude towards team meetings and training may have finally sent Kelly over the edge and asked for him to be traded.

It's all now up to Redskins owner Dan Snyder to whip out the chequebook and pay top dollar to give RGIII a new number one target in 2014.
