At a time when thousands of Raiders fans are making their desire for DeSean Jackson known on Twitter, Washington cornerback DeAngelo Hall has expressed a very strong interest in bringing his former nemesis to town.
“Huge, huge, man,” Hall said Saturday night, via CSNWashington.com. “If we could add a piece like that. . . . He’s a threat whenever the ball is in hands.”
Hall seemed to get more excited about the prospect of playing with instead of against Jackson, the more Hall talked about it.
“It automatically makes the special teams better,” Hall said. “He’s a deep threat. You can’t put eight in the box. Man, if we could pull that off. . . . I was a little disappointed early on in free agency, but if we could pull that off, hell, that would my day, make my year.”
Hall also has no concerns about Jackson’s ability to mesh with the other players.
“I feel like our locker room has a good group of young guys, a good group of old guys, man,” Hall said. “Some of the things he’s been going through lately, that’s life. That’s life. We’ve all been through something, so . . . if he’s able to come here, man, I’m going to take him under my wing and just try to put him on the right path.”
Jackson could help put the Redskins back on the path to contention. At a time when the Eagles seem to be opening up a wider gap with the rest of the division, having Jackson leave Philly and arrive in D.C. could help bunch things up a bit.
