DeSean Jackson WR WAS 4 Months2 Comments

Numerous sources tell CBS Philly that DeSean Jackson was "blatantly insubordinate" and "not very well liked by his teammates" with the Eagles, leading to his release before signing with Washington.

CBS Philly reports Jackson threw "temper tantrums cussing out (Chip) Kelly several times in front of the team," and was "more concerned with his rap label" than winning football games. The dislike among teammates would seem to be confirmed by their dispassionate reactions to his departure. "I'll put it this way, when it came out last Friday that [Jackson] was released," said one source, "more than a few guys were happy it happened. They said 'good riddance.'"

DeSean Jackson's contract with the Redskins has $16 million fully guaranteed, including a $5 million signing bonus.

On paper, it's a three-year, $24 million deal as originally announced. But in reality, Jackson is only certain to get two years and $16 million. Still, it's $1 million more in guaranteed money than he got from the Eagles in his 2012 contract and his average annual salary is $700,000 more than top free agent receiver Eric Decker got from the Jets. Considering Jackson's off-field issues, how late we are in free agency and the notion that the Redskins were bidding against themselves, it's a decent deal struck by agent Joel Segal. Jackson also gets to be an unrestricted free agent again at age 30, setting himself up for one more payday if he keeps his nose clean.

Free agent DeSean Jackson will remain in Washington through Tuesday evening.

D-Jax's official visit ended Tuesday afternoon, but the sides are still trying to hammer out a deal. On one hand, it's a good sign Jackson doesn't want to leave town. On the other, the more time that passes without an agreement, the more likely D-Jax is to begin making other visits.

NFL.com's Albert Breer confirms the 49ers reached out to free agent DeSean Jackson about a visit after he was cut by the Eagles, but that "nothing has been set up since."

Per Breer, communication between the sides is "on hold" as D-Jax waits for a resolution to his Redskins visit. It's unclear if the 49ers are next in line if Jackson leaves Washington, D.C. without a deal, but it's a good bet.

Free agent DeSean Jackson has left Redskins Park but plans to stay in town with hopes of striking a deal.

Jackson spent about three hours at the Redskins facility Tuesday afternoon. This was after he arrived in town on Monday, went out last night with some players and rapper Wale, and then had breakfast with Redskins officials. Both sides have a strong interest in working out a contract, and Jackson's agent, Joel Segal, is also in town to talk financials. Ultimately, we'd be surprised if the Redskins don't land him. The 49ers and Browns aren't believed to be serious suitors.

NFL Network's Albert Breer reports the 49ers are only interested in free agent DeSean Jackson if the price is right.

CSN Bay Area expressed similar thoughts, while ESPN's Adam Schefter calls the 49ers' interest in Jackson "real" but "guarded." The 49ers are only about $5 million under the salary cap and don't have a ton of money to throw around. They're also already paying significant dollars to all three of Michael Crabtree, Anquan Boldin, and Vernon Davis. With Jackson probably eyeing $6-10 million annually, it just doesn't quite add up. The Redskins remain the most logical landing spot for Jackson. Cleveland has money but might be a long shot.

NBC Washington D.C. reports the Browns and 49ers are interested in and have reached out to free agent DeSean Jackson.

The Browns are "going hard" with an offer to Jackson while the 49ers contacted Jackson during his visit with the Redskins and have "thrown their hat in the ring" for the 27-year-old. If the Redskins want to land Jackson, it appears they can't let him leave the facility on Tuesday. Jackson and Josh Gordon in Cleveland would almost be unfair. Either player could take the top off the defense at any time and would provide whoever the quarterback is with two legitimate No. 1s. In San Fran, Jackson's numbers would likely suffer in a run-heavy offense that also includes Vernon Davis, Michael Crabtree, and Anquan Boldin.

Profootballtalk.com reports the Raiders are leery about signing free agent DeSean Jackson.

GM Reggie McKenzie is reportedly worried about Jackson's reputation as a me-first player who can't be controlled. And considering the Raiders could be in for another long season of piling up losses, it might not be the best idea to have Jackson around throwing a fit. Jackson seems destined to land with the Redskins. He'll continue his visit with Washington on Tuesday.

Citing two people with knowledge of the situation, the Washington Post reports the Redskins have "made progress toward a deal" with free agent DeSean Jackson, but no agreement is finalized.

Jackson looked like he had a great time clubbing with DeAngelo Hall and rapper Wale late Monday, per his Instagram account, but D-Jax is very interested in money. And he's probably going to the team willing to pay him the most. In other words, Jackson may have to take one more free agent visit to max every penny he can out of Skins owner Dan Snyder. One source with knowledge of negotiations did tell the Post early Tuesday that the sides are "getting close."
