DeSean Jackson Rumors: Redskins in, Chiefs reportedly out

DeSean Jackson - Brace Hemmelgarn-USA TODAY Sport

The Washington Redskins are now considered the 'front runner' for free-agent wide receiver DeSean Jackson

Ideally for the New York Giants, now that the Philadelphia Eagles have parted ways with diminutive Giant-killing wide receiver DeSean Jackson, the electrifying speedster will end up playing for a team outside the NFC East.

Well, that may or may not happen. Jackson's first free-agent visit will apparently be on Monday with the Washington Redskins. The reports of interest from the Redskins have drawn a mixed reaction from Redskins' fans at SB Nation's Hogs Haven.

One team that apparently will not bid for Jackson's services is the Kansas City Chiefs.

If I was an NFL GM or owner, the fact that the team he played for cut him in the prime of an outstanding career, and the fact that Kansas City coach Andy Reid, who had Jackson in Philly for five years, doesn't want anything to do with him would be a huge red flag.

You know, however, that when it comes to a 27-year-old three-time Pro Bowler who had the best season of his career in 2013 those things -- and the rumors of gang ties -- won't stop everyone.

The Redskins are now apparently considered the "front runner" to land Jackson.

One bit of good news for the Giants is Jackson does happen to wind up in Washington is that Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie, signed partially to counter Jackson, held him to two catches for 34 yards in a meeting last season.
