Appearing on “NFL Total Access,” NFL Media Insider Ian Rapoport confirmed the Redskins do have a chance to “seal the deal” if they can reach agreement by Tuesday afternoon.
What’s really crazy is that Jackson could end up making more then Eric Decker.
“If you want to talk about what kind of contract he would generate, Eric Decker was the top receiver on the market during free agency,” Rapoport said. “Don’t be surprised if DeSean Jackson commands more than that. He is coming off possibly the best year of his career, and was set to make $10.5 million with the Eagles.”
Of course Jackson is a better player than Decker, but it would be a bit of a surprise given the off the field concerns that accompany him.
Update: Jackson to the Redskins is a “done deal.”
