In the old days, you could nail down a potential free agent player or coaches whereabouts by calling the agent or tracking the tail numbers on a private plane.
These days, you have to call the cops.
According to A.J. Perez of NJ.com, the Raiders and the 49ers have checked with the Los Angeles Police Department regarding DeSean Jackson’s reported links to gang members.
The Redskins, however, have not called the LAPD about the report.
What that means as to the pursuit of Jackson at the moment is unclear, since he’s in Washington along with his agent.
But since each team employs “security guys” to dig into the background of all their players or prospective players, it’s reasonable that they want to make sure they have the latest on the guy.
In case, you know, he ends up “moving on,” from Dulles without a deal in hand.
