Trade For DeSean Jackson A Longshot


A trade for Philadelphia’s star wide receiver DeSean Jackson is likely a longshot for the Chiefs, according to the Kansas City Star’s Terez A. Paylor.

But just because the chances of trading for Jackson doesn’t mean there isn’t interest in acquiring him.

 

The potential for Jackson to be cut may be more likely than traded. Think about how the Darrelle Revis situation went down. His cap number was too high to trade for and he wasn’t willing to restructure so as to force Tampa Bay’s hand. Jackson may be playing the same game. Should Jackson hit the free agent market the Chiefs could construct a contract that would fit the Chiefs’ cap situation. This is assuming the Chiefs could convince him to come to Kansas City, of course. What do you think, Addicts?

    I would LOVE to grab Jackson if he were to be cut! Then we could do something different with our first round pick: FS or CB maybe? Or we could still get a WR with our pick and have an offense with Charles, Bowe, Jackson, Cooks/Lee/Benjamin/Beckham Jr., Fasano/Kelce, and Dressler. We would be legit.

    He is only being shopped by the Eagles because he is a constant whiner about not making enough money. No matter how the Chiefs could restructure his contract, he will never be happy and become Revis like in playing for two contracts. The one he has signed for this season and the one he will sign with another team for next season.

    However, Ben, it looks as though the Chiefs are not interested in Ed Reynolds, Jr, the hard hitting safety from Stanford as they were one of three teams not attending Stanford’s Pro Day.

    As long as Jackson would play like a man, not like a boy. Without complaining about getting the ball enough or paid high enough, he would be great for the team. As much as I hate to say it, he would fill in for Dexter with the returns.
    For the WR, he wouldn’t have to be in the slot…..though he could be. He’s shown he can be a deep receiver, something Dexter really didn’t do.

    I just remember the yr he didn’t play his 100% just cause he was upset about the $.

      Jackson would run circles around McCluster as a receiver.

  • TAZMOSIS

    Leave Jackson alone. He is just another nightmare waiting for some team to pay him less than he wants.

    I’d take DeSean Jackson because we need quality players in our receiving corps. If we had to rent him for a year then I would. Our number two receiver cupboard is once again bare. As it has been for about ten years or longer now..

    Not going to happen. If Eagles cut Jackson, he’s most likely headed northeast to the Jets or Patriots. Chiefs don’t have the cap space.
