DeSean Jackson spending another night in Washington

After dinner with Washington Redskins officials on Monday night and a three-hour meeting with the team on Tuesday, wide receiver DeSean Jackson is staying in the Washington D.C. area for another night.

According to Dianna Russini of NBC News4, Jackson had a flight scheduled to leave Washington on Tuesday night. Instead, Jackson did not board the flight and remains in town.

Jackson’s agent, Joel Segal, is also in Washington after an unrelated speaking engagement at George Washington University.

People near to Jackson were suggesting it was a “done deal” Monday night that the free agent receiver would end up with the Redskins. The longer he remains in D.C. without leaving to take another visit, the more likely that scenario becomes.

Jackson was released by the Philadelphia Eagles on Friday and is coming off the best season of his career. Jackson caught 82 passes for 1,332 yards and nine touchdowns with the Eagles last season.

  1. I think Washington knows if Djax leaves without a contract he will only be back as an opponent.

  2. RGIII’s dad could not make it today. He will be there tomorrow. Thats the reason for the delay..

  3. I believe a deal is going to get done. The Redskins will definitely be a very very potent offense with DJax. I was at MetLife stadium for “Miracle at the Meadowlands II” and I’ll never forget the way he put his hands in the air and hyped up the “boo birds” and then commenced to turning our dream day into a nightmare!!!!LOL His game changing ability is simply undeniable.

  4. this is your last hoo rah desean..no money
    or some money take it or leave it..whats it gonna be?

  5. Jackson or no Jackson. reggie is too passive.. that is of course unless the player is on the decline & in his 30’s, then it’s a quick 2yrs;). feel free to sign someone dynamic.. or just draft dynamic and then let them walk when it comes time to resign them.
    RN4L but smh!!

  6. Desean’s numbers will fall because Washington doesn’t have a real quarterback. That guy playing under center is a great athlete, but a horrible decision maker and doesn’t read defenses well.

  7. As a Birds fan I’m not concerned. Our guys practiced against him and he can b takin out of games. but he is a major talent I didn’t want to see him go. he’s great between the 20s. just keep the gang signs to a minimum wanksta. I think the birds feared retaliation at some point. so long d jax.

  8. Everyone keeps saying 2013 was his best season… it really wasn’t. It was his best receiving year maybe, but his best all around year was 2009… 400+ punt return yards, 2 punt return TDs… 11 rushes at over 12 yards a pop and another TD. 2009 was better than 2013 no matter how you slice it.

  9. Is this Washington antagonizing Philly, or is it Philly laughing at Washington’s stupidity in considering picking up this player? Jackson is from the same mold as all the other bad pickups for Washington, that are selfish, entitled, and overhyped. So with all that in mind, is he really a good player? Probably not.
