Kansas City is out on DeSean Jackson, according to Ian Rapoport.
Rapoport says the Chiefs did a background investigation of Jackson like many of the other teams in the Jackson hunt and have elected to stay out of the negotiations.
#Chiefs were among those who did research on DeSean Jackson, as did plenty of others. Source says they are now OUT. He’ll visit Skins Monday

The sudden backing out of the negotiations cannot be a good sign for the accusations surrounding Jackson. There are few people in the NFL who know Jackson better than Andy Reid so the decision to back out means Reid did not like what they saw in the report. It will be interesting to see how this decision effects the market for Jackson.
Kansas City now enters the draft with a serious question at wide receiver after deciding to exit the Jackson sweepstakes. There is no one else available on the open market who would have the same impact as Jackson. However, it should be noted wide receiver is arguably the deepest position in this year’s draft.
Jackson is scheduled to meet with Washington on Monday.
