Bills have interest in DeSean Jackson, at the right price

DeSean Jackson AP

Add the Bills to the list of teams interested in free agent receiver DeSean Jackson. But only if he can be had at the right price.

The Bills are one of the teams that will consider signing Jackson, according to Ian Rapoport of NFL Network. However, Tim Graham of the Buffalo News cautions that the Bills will go into the Jackson sweepstakes with a predetermined price, and the Bills won’t get into a bidding war.

Buffalo is in good enough cap shape that the Bills could afford Jackson even at the $10.5 million he was due under his contract with the Eagles. But just because the Bills can afford it doesn’t mean they’re willing to spend it.

With Jackson’s first visit already lined up for Washington, it’s entirely possible that Daniel Snyder will open his wallet and make an offer that keeps Jackson from even considering a budget-minded team like Buffalo.

On the field, Jackson would be an interesting addition to a receiving corps that includes Stevie Johnson and a trio of talented youngsters, Robert Woods, T.J. Graham and Marquise Goodwin. Whether Jackson makes sense on the salary ledger remains to be seen.

    I think Jackson will sign with the Skins so he can go against the Eagles twice a year.

    That’s laughable… He will have an agreement in place with the Redskins by noon tomorrow.

    They’re out Skins or Raiders will pay top dollar.

    I do not think this would be a good fit for Jackson.The bills need to spend the money in other places and draft a Wr this year. He would be smart to go to DC, but he will probably end up in Oak!

    I hope not we have a burner in Goodwin I think what the Bills need is a credible redzone threat. Not another speed guy

    DJax might be worth a good offer from The Buff. … Draft Ebron, add Jackson … And then you can find out how good your QB is … and if he is for real.

    Your receiving corps would smoke the Eagles’. …

    He won’t be a Redskin.

    Adding Jackson would make TJ Graham the odd man out in Buffalo. And no one in Buffalo would mind.

    Yes, let’s knock the Bills for not wanting to shell out cash to A.) a receiver we already have 3 of, B.) A guy with possible character concerns. C.) A guy who is playing a position where guys near his level got half as much on the open market. But it all comes down to the Bills being cheap, I mean, all of those teams with the highest payroll are the best I guess. Of the top-10 highest payrolls in the league, 6 were playoff teams, 2 were .500 teams, and the other 2 are picking top-8 in the draft. Of the teams that made the playoffs, Denver is the only team to have committed a sizable chunk of payroll to a FA, and that was Manning. All of the other teams payroll comes from players that were either drafted by that team, or traded for. So, yeah, I’m ok with the Bills being a little stingy with their cash here, but bash away.

    Who isn’t interested in good players at the right price?

  11. borisbulldog says: Mar 30, 2014 1:46 PM

    Do the Bills mean at the right price now?

    Because head case DuhSean will want to renegotiate a 4 year contract after the 1st year!

    I’m so against this I don’t even know where to start. Been a Bills fan as far back as I can remember: Ronnie harmen dropping pass in endzone.

  13. thetooloftools says: Mar 30, 2014 2:24 PM

    The Eagles might know something they have already shared with the rest of the NFL.
    I’m not really buying all this interest in this guy otherwise someone would have made an offer… any offer… before he was cut if they were willing to eat his contract.
    You just don’t CUT someone like him unless you are RUNNING from him.
    Not in Chip Kelly O scheme?
    REALLY?
    I don’t want him on my team.

    Buffalo has become the Sacramento Kings of football.No one wants to play there unless absolutely necessary. Jackson will thrive in Oakland, but his desire to stick it to the Eagles may be too good to pass.

  15. dowhatifeellike says: Mar 30, 2014 2:40 PM

    I think all of the Bills’ dealings have “at the right price” implied already.

  16. realnflmaster says: Mar 30, 2014 2:54 PM

    If he wants to play in LA or Toronto he’ll go to Buffalo.

  17. taintedsaints2009 says: Mar 30, 2014 3:33 PM

    buffalo: the most forgotten franchise in the NFL. cleveland and oakland still get some attention: mostly bad. but nobody ever, ever, ever talks about buffalo in any way.

  18. Mr. Craig says: Mar 30, 2014 4:56 PM

    I repeat what I said in another post: BUYER BEWARE!! some of you must think that the Eagles are stupid to cut him, or think it was for money reasons.. but if no other team wanted to trade for him even a 7th round pic.. that says something is not right and then cutting him after his career best?? Does not figure that the Eagles are that dumb…

    Sorry.. there is something we are not being told.

  19. borisbulldog says: Mar 30, 2014 5:23 PM

    Leave it a ain’ts fan to talk trash about other teams.

    Take away the one tainted SB year and you’re no different than the Bills!

  20. stevenray72 says: Mar 30, 2014 6:20 PM

    Redskin fans say Buffalo can have him

  21. nsideindy says: Mar 30, 2014 6:24 PM

    Don’t blame them…he doesn’t bring $10 million in value. To any team.

  22. timmyp716 says: Mar 30, 2014 7:48 PM

    Isnt this the guy how drops the ball before he reaches the endzone? I’m pretty sure the Bills need a guy who can hold on to the ball as he passes the goal line……

  23. turfdaddy says: Mar 30, 2014 9:42 PM

    Doesn’t every team have interest in him “at the right price?”

  24. dodohead418 says: Mar 31, 2014 12:02 AM

    DeSean heard at the right price, and said no on the spot!

  25. misteranderson41 says: Mar 31, 2014 3:40 PM

    ha….no way he ends up in buffalo….i’d love it if he did, but he’d take less money to go play in SF, KC or DC before he’d go to a franchise with a 2nd yr / quasi rookie qb in EJ.
