Big Red and Little DeSean could be getting together again.
We suggested during Friday’s Pro Football Talk on NBCSN keeping an eye on the Chiefs. Terez Paylor of the Kansas City Star reports that, indeed, the Chiefs are keeping an eye on Jackson.
Per Paylor, the Chiefs are pursuing Jackson, whom coach Andy Reid drafted back in 2008.
The NFLPA’s daily cap report pegs the Chief’s cap space at $4.5 million. Which could make it difficult to afford Jackson.
But it’s fairly easy to create cap space, if a team wants to do it. Contracts can be restructured easily, creating more than enough cap room to afford Jackson.
With the Broncos going all in to pursue a championship and plenty of Chiefs players leaving via free agency, Jackson would help Kansas City close the gap with the three-time defending division champions in Denver.
