Saturday Evening DeSean Jackson Rumor Thread


We’ve had a flurry of updates for DeSean Jackson tonight, so let’s get everyone up to speed on what is going on.

First is to note Jackson will be visiting Washington on Monday, which means one would think there will not be too much action happening tomorrow. This is unless someone gives Jackson an offer he cannot refuse.

Jackson visiting Washington could either be for leverage or Washington has upped themselves to a serious contender. We learned this morning Washington and Buffalo could be wildcards for Jackson.

Paylor’s tweet also let’s us know the Chiefs are still in it, but there is a lot of competition for his services. We’ll see what kind of pull Andy Reid and his assistants have in luring Jackson to KC.

With there being other visits planned, and knowing Washington’s history of big offers, it wouldn’t be a surprise if the Washington visit happening first isn’t a ploy to get a high contract offer on the table to take to other teams later in the week. Of course Jackson could have serious interest in Washington, too, but it is a curious team to start a string of visits given the teams interested in him.

There was a string of rumors on Twitter and other outlets that Jackson to Oakland was all but a done deal. This tweet from an actual journalist suggest any deal between the Raiders and Jackson is far from done.

It is not a surprise Jackson will sign sooner than later. The earlier the Chiefs can get Jackson in for a visit after his Washington visit, the better.

Make of this what you will.

    No offense K.C fans but DJax grew up a Raider fan, bleeds silver and black and has already reached out to the Raiders prerelease. The Raiders have more money to offer him then any other team, so the only reason he’s visiting all these teams is to draw a better offer from Oakland. If the Raiders don’t get him I will be shocked and it will only mean one thing. They didn’t want him. If that’s the case then I really hope he doesn’t end up In KC playing against us, LOL

      If Jackson wants to catch passes from Schaub, he should just be a DB for the Chiefs!!!

      • matt

        Sounds about right.

      • James Schroeder

        That was pretty funny, I’ll give ya that. Well, as a long time Raider fan I hope Schaub returns to his pro bowl form. Every QB has a rough patch at one point or another. I think he’ll be alright. I guess we’ll find out when we play each other.

  • john

    He’s a Raiders fan and has been his whole life I think Reggie already made him an offer and he wants to see if he can get a lot more somewhere else, McKenzie not one to over pay for players, lets see if jaccpot can follow his heart and sign with Oakland or go where the big moneys at, If he signs with Oakland with all the other pro bowl acquisitions they have made this offseason there playoff bound!!!!, The Chiefs are done they won’t be half as good as they were last year, the same with the Chargers. Denver is there only contender in that divison now!

    • Roc

      Good luck next season. I would argue with you, but I learned my lesson arguing with uneducated Raiders fans a long time ago, it’s like arguing with a little kids. Good luck with your ” pro bowl acquisitions”

      • KCMikeG

        Hard to argue a banger wanting to be in chokeland. Especially with his psychic knowledge of Reggie’s offer substantiated by the proof of Jackson’s love for the faiders being so deep that he is shopping the imagined offer so he can squeeze them for more money. Now that’s a special kind of love. Playoff bound from the cellar seems realistic since Reggie has done so much with the team over his first two years. Combine that with the donkeys being THERE only competition and his in depth analysis of why we and the dolts will only win 5 games each and there’s just no winning that argument!!

    • Daniel Mayfield

      Negativity. Wrong words from fans.

  • David Walker

    I don’t mean to be a debbie downer but we’re not getting him. At the end of the day money will be what it comes down to and we don’t have enough to offer him what he’ll want. The Redskins and Raiders will have the money to offer him just as much if not more than what he was making in Philly. We need to focus on drafting a WR in the 1st round and give DJAX a rest.

  • Lyle Graversen

    While I would like to have his skill set in KC, I doubt it happens. His track record is that he cares a LOT about his contract. If Oak opens up the checkbook he just doesn’t strike me as a guy to play for less because of the coach or better playoff odds. Then when you add Daniel “overpay” Snyder and the chance to hop on the RG3 media hype express and I’m just not sure coming to the Midwest on a team friendly deal is something we should get our hopes up for.

    • Stan Colbert

      Couldn’t of said it better myself!

  • Daniel Mayfield

    Never know. He might think it out and give KC a chance. Look at my coach I use to have and the offense they had last yr. I’ll have the spot to be the return man, there’s WR Bowe, 2 great RBs, a much improved QB. Thinking about a ring instead of $$.

    It’s hard to say. Most players think $$ instead of rings but his legs aren’t gonna last him forever. But he’ll probably go for $$ instead. And for the ppl that think the Raiders can make it even with Jackson….please!!! lol

  • Stan Colbert

    Seems too young for Raiders & frankly too talented for Chiefs! How would his dogs handle him wearing red jersey! All the same I would just as soon him stay in NFC East so don’t have to deal with him!
