DeSean Jackson should be motivated to silence the Eagles and other critics in 2014.
DeSean Jackson will get his share of opportunities to prove the Philadelphia Eagles wrong over the next few seasons. Jackson has agreed in principle to a multi-year deal with the Washington Redskins. Unfortunately, we won’t know how the 2014 NFL schedule shakes out for the next few weeks.
Jackson will be out to make scorched earth of the Eagles secondary.
It didn’t take long for DeSean Jackson to find a new home. More importantly, it should come to no one’s surprise that he will remain in the NFC East. Jackson joining the Redskins gives quarterback Robert Griffin III the best deep threat he’s had since coming into the league in 2012. Jackson — who caught 82 balls for 1,332 yards and 9 touchdowns joins a talented offense which includes: Griffin, running back Alfred Morris, receivers Pierre Garcon and free agent signee Andre Roberts along with tight end Jordan Reed.
The Redskins brought in offensive-minded head coach Jay Gruden to open up an offense which was plagued with injuries and poor production in 2013. The addition of Jackson and a healthy Robert Griffin III will put Washington right back into the thick of the NFC East race.
The developments of the last week should spark something in Jackson — who has been labeled as immature and more concerned with personal numbers throughout his six seasons in Philly.
Maybe this gives the Philadelphia Eagles front office the opportunity to discuss their decision-making leading up to the release of Jackson last week.
