Jackson Wants to Stay in DC
Desean Jackson has been one of the fastest receivers in the league for a long time, and with free agency fast approaching he will demand a lot of money. There are reports that the Redskins are split between resigning Garcon or Jackson, but Jackson made it clear in an interview that he wants to stay here. Speed declines rapidly once you get above 30 in the NFL, and with his size he won’t last much longer.
However, he could very well have a few more years of great football left. Reports saying that he wanted to leave Washington started surfacing late in the season, but him coming out and saying he wants to stay is a positive step in the right direction towards getting a deal done.
