DeSean Jackson's time on the open market may turn out to be brief.
After arriving in Washington yesterday to meet with Redskins coaches and executives, Jackson's visit appears to be going quite nicely. According to Tim McManus of 97.5 The Fanatic in Philadelphia, things are already progressing toward a possible deal between Jackson and the 'Skins.
McManus cites sources that say the discussions between the two sides are going “very well” and another source close to Jackson that said it’s a “done deal” with the Redskins.
The Redskins are currently the only visit that Jackson has scheduled, and that visit will continue on today. However, that may change within the next 24 hours.
NFL Network reporter Ian Rapoport tweeted last night that in spite of the positive visit with the Redskins, there are a "number of teams still in play." In addition to the Bills, the Raiders and Chiefs have also been speculated as possible destinations for the 27-year-old wide receiver.
Jackson was released by the Eagles on Friday and is coming off the best season of his career. Jackson caught 82 passes for 1,332 yards and nine touchdowns with the Eagles last season. He is reportedly seeking somewhere between $9-$10 million a season in his new contract. Jackson was scheduled to make $10.5 million with the Eagles this season before being released.
