Report: Chiefs not pursuing DeSean Jackson

DeSean Jackson AP

The list of DeSean Jackson’s potential suitors has reportedly shrunk by one team.

The Chiefs are “out” of the running for Jackson, Ian Rapoport of NFL Media reported on Saturday night.

Jackson, whom the Eagles released Friday, played for current Chiefs head coach Andy Reid for the first five seasons of his NFL career.

It’s unclear why the Chiefs aren’t in the mix for Jackson, though Rapoport reports that the club did do its “due diligence” in considering the three-time Pro Bowl receiver.

Jackson will visit Washington on Monday.

A seventh-year player from Cal, the 5-foot-10, 175-pound Jackson caught 82 passes for 1,336 yards and nine scores in 2013 for the Eagles.

    They can’t afford him, it’s that simple, but rapoport would rather make news than report it.

    K.C. only has 4.6M in cap space so they really should not have been expected to really be in the hunt for DeSean. I would expect K.C. to look at drafting WR’s to fill their needs rather than sign for big numbers.

    He will have to look at going with some team with some cap space like the Raiders or Washington. Even the Seahawks would be a viable competitor with their big cap space, right now.

    I hope that the plan, if the Hawks look do take a look at him, would be to work it out without having to cut or fail to sign extensions for the current roster.

    It’s obviously because he refuses to wear red.

    With the 23rd pick of the NFL draft, the Chiefs select…. Odell Beckham Jr!!!

    Washington does no due diligence so it’s a perfect fit.

    I for one am extremely happy this turd won’t be contaminating what seems to be a pretty good group of men. The thought of this idiot in the red & gold repulsed me.

    Andy Reid doesn’t wanna kick those tires again. Moving on from the DJ headcase. Mike Vick’s comments spoke volume. Some guys just don’t know when to grow up, maybe a change of scenery helps but we saw this same problem with T.O. Gang nonsense aside, Jackson is simply a prima donna the Eagles no longer wanted to deal with ala Owens with San Fran, Philly, Dallas etc.

    Andy covered for him for years. He sulked and dogged it when he wanted more money and a lot of guys on that team remembered it! Why do you think none of his teammates were vocal about him being released? Talented player,but totally a ME first guy.

    Reid wanted him… hoped the stink coming out of Philly would scare other teams away. No such luck. Tough luck Chefs.

    Wasn’t I good fit BC of the qb ! Smith can actually throw a decent deep ball he just doesn’t look to wrs or outside the hashes enough to make Jackson happy! Smith is killer in the seams

    Andy doesn’t want another go round of “Will he dog it if he feels he’s underpaid” again with this guy. Going into his SEVENTH year in the league,he hasn’t matured one bit! The team that gives him a Big Signing Bonus will regret it when he comes back the following season claiming he’s underpaid.

    Duh, just couldn’t wear the red.

  13. believeland2014 says: Mar 29, 2014 10:57 PM

    three days later…..BREAKING NEWS DESEAN JACKSON SIGNS WITH CHIEFS lol

  14. desbattle82 says: Mar 29, 2014 11:31 PM

    Chiefs need a stud tight end that would help smith ! No wr has or ever will had 1k yds receiving but a tight end with skills like Davis for smith can get about 70 catches for 850 yds and 10 plus TDs ! Chiefs need ebron amaro Nichols or Jenkins at tight end then a we like moncrief Landry Richardson or Allen Robinson to be the we opposite bowe

    Andy has spoken clearly and loudly telling us all we need to know about his former player by walking on by.

  16. johndylanthe1st says: Mar 30, 2014 2:24 AM

    This hurts so much worse than Manning. We have an actual logical shot here.

  17. dolphins4 says: Mar 30, 2014 7:12 AM

    This should throw up more red flags that Andy Reid don’t even want him.

  18. firedup1 says: Mar 30, 2014 8:10 AM

    Im sure it came down to money. He has always been about the money.

  19. 25cuts says: Mar 30, 2014 8:48 AM

    Can totally see eagles grabbing Odell becham at 22.

  20. smartstickhotness says: Mar 30, 2014 9:54 AM

    Thankful we did not get this whiner in KC

  21. myeaglescantwin says: Mar 30, 2014 11:07 AM

    And this should be all you need to know about the man’s character

  22. gooboy6 says: Mar 30, 2014 5:32 PM

    Translation- Reid wanted him, Hunt said no, simple as that

  23. ovaw8lova says: Mar 30, 2014 5:51 PM

    And I guess with the Jets GM comments they have no interest either. Man whatever. Those teams interested still have interest at the right price.
