Jackson and RG3 to discuss Redskins jersey number

Washington Redskins have a dilemma on their hands ahead of the 2014 NFL season, with questions over who will wear the number ten jersey for their organisation. 

The new signing of former Philadelphia Eagles wide-receiver DeSean Jackson has brought about an interesting scenario, with both him and Skins starting quarterback Robert Griffin III lovers of the number ten jersey. 

Jackson wore the number with the Eagles for six seasons before they released him this week, and RG3 has worn the same number in his first two seasons in the NFL since getting drafted in 2012. 

Speaking to the press Wednesday, Jackson admitted that there will be a little talk between the two talented stars about who will wear the jersey number next season. 

“I definitely am familiar on the No. 10 [worn by] Robert Griffin,” Jackson told CSN Washington. “We’ve talked about it a little bit. But that isn’t a decision that’s been made yet so far.”

The signing of Jackson acts as a real coup for Washington as they look to bounce back from a terrible 2013 season. 

That campaign was derailed due to Griffin's knee injury issues, with the QB even dropping to as low as third-string towards the end of the season. 

However, with Jackson on board this season, RG3 is likely to have a career year.
