Poll: Should The Chiefs Re-Enter The DeSean Jackson Fray?

Ian Rapoport reported yesterday the Chiefs are out of the DeSean Jackson running after going through their own vetting of Jackson.

Jackson is still receiving a lot of interest from several teams and has a meeting set with Washington on Monday. It is expected Jackson will sign soon but he isn’t anticipated to sign before Monday.

Kansas City could really use a receiver like Jackson, who can do a lot with the ball in his hands. Jackson would be KC’s first true consistent deep threat since Eddie Kennison and can do a lot in the scree and short slant game. He’s what the Chiefs need and are looking for as a receiver opposite of Dwayne Bowe.

The need for Jackson is obvious, and there a several examples of teams who had questionable characters on their team and still won. Would it be worth it for the Chiefs to re-enter the Jackson sweepstakes? Vote in the poll and give us your thoughts in the comments.

Should the Chiefs get back into the DeSean Jackson fray?

    I heard he was here. Several people say they saw him at the mall, but I can’t confirm those reports. If Reid doesn’t want Jackson, it’s time we turn our attention to a prospect coming out this May.

  • Deaudrey Dre-Mac MacDonald

    I will say this, if he wanted to chase a championship theb he should be here trying to be back with a coach that he knows him and the vision this that this staff has. I just feel that he wants money which I’m not mad at but how will this define his legacy as a NFL receiver. Does he even care?

  • Shawn Bell

    If he is there in KC, then Big Red is throwing a smoke screen to throw off other teams. Which would be interesting but highly unlikely. I agree with Stacy, time to look towards the draft. As always Go Chiefs!

    No followed by HELL NO!

  • gaden

    I find that 54% voted yes to be very disturbing. Does that mean those people don’t care about the character of the men our kids (grandkids in my case) look up to? What’s wrong with telling a hoodlum “we don’t want your type here?”

    • Erik Hild

      What proof is there of him being a hoodlum just because a journalist alleges that he has gang ties you automatically think he is a bad person? It’s not the chiefs responsibility to provide role models for your children or grandchildren. If you think DeSean Jackson is a bad person than explain to your kids or grand kids why he is bad. He is a damn good receiver and the Chiefs would be lucky to have him on the field on Sundays.

      • gaden

        Yeah, because kids always listen and do exactly as you say. How does the rest of the conversation go? “This is a bad person, but we want him to help us win.” “But you told me if I was bad, I wouldn’t get anywhere in this world.” “Sports stars are different, kid, you can be as bad as you want as long as you help us win” ” I see, you want me to be a good person, but I don’t have to be if I can play sports, is that right?”

        • Erik Hild

          I’ll ask you again why is he such a bad person? I get that you can’t control who your children look up to but to say the chiefs shouldn’t pursue DeSean Jackson cause you think he is a bad role model is insane.

          • DieHard_ChiefsFan

            Erik, I agree with you. Yes he did have an issue when he wanted to get paid. Another items people miss out on is look at where he was playing. That crowd is brutal. If you are not on top all of the time, you get shot down by that crowd, even in some cases death threats.. No different in any sports played in Philadelphia. Andy Reid was worn out in that atmosphere, since moving to our team, look at him, completely revitalized. DeSean has Talent and is a True #1 Receiver. I think Andy Reid can get him under control and the roar of the Crowd will pull him in. And with Bowe, Charles and Smith, this offense will be something special. Sometimes change is good !!

        There have been reports of such activity for years… KC vetted him & quickly after doing so removed themselves from the race for his services. That alone tells us something!
        While I believe we are responsible for being role models for our children, I also acknowledge the fact that kids do look up to many of these athletes. It’s sports & with it’s exposure it’s bound to happen…
        That said… I believe The Chiefs have done a fairly admirable job of keeping a good balance of “high character” / “high morals” players on the field & in the locker room over the years!
        Even in times when players have proven to be not up to par in the character dept. (Larry Johnson) KC has given him ample time for a second chance before shipping them out! But in todays NFL many GM’s are shying away from players w/ these issues… And honestly who can blame them?

        • Erik Hild

          I just think we are way to quick to judge DeSean Jackson as a “hoodlum” as gaden said. Like a lot of professional athletes he came from an inner city neighborhood. Even the LAPD came out and said he does not have gang affiliations. The Eagles released him because he was not working well with Chip Kelley and the Chiefs stopped pursuing him because he is asking for more money than what they can pay him bottom line.

          • Troy Utt

            Those “reports” are just that & enough of them over time will scare of GM’s… It was obvious he & Chip were not getting along in the sandbox, & the subject of money was going to continue to be an issue even tho he was playing under a fairly recent contract. Once McCoy & Riley got paid Jackson immediately wanted more…
            That being said I don’t believe the Chiefs would have a problem signing Jackson if they truly wanted to… It’s no secret the cap is tight this season, but KC has chosen not to rework any contracts to this point to free up any monies… They have worked within their means thus far to assure money was not put into future years, so far still honoring the VET contracts left behind by Pioli & looking forward to extending the contracts of Berry, & Smith.
