DeSean Jackson agrees to terms with Redskins

Arizona Cardinals v Philadelphia Eagles Getty Images

One visit was enough for DeSean Jackson to determine where he wanted to play next season.

According to Dianna Russini of NBC News 4 in Washington, Jackson has agreed to terms on a deal with the Washington Redskins.

Denise White of EAG Sports Management – Jackson’s personal PR firm –  confirmed the deal with Washington.

Jackson was scheduled to leave the D.C. area on Tuesday evening. Instead, he chose to stick around another night; a sign talks could be progressing toward a deal between the two sides.

Now that deal is done. Jackson is expected to sign the contract Wednesday morning.

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.

Jackson’s addition would bring an explosive element that the Washington receiving corps has been lacking. Jackson will join Pierre Garcon, Santana Moss and fellow free agent signee Andre Roberts as receiving options for Robert Griffin III.

    How could the Eagles let that happen? Talk about your all time backfires…

    Well this will be interesting to say the least.

  7. freddypatsfan says: Apr 1, 2014 11:53 PM

    Good signing from a Pats fan. Hope you stick it to the Eagles D-Jack. Kelley cuts a guy for “gang ties” but recruits out of South Central Crenshaw heights when he was at Oregon, f-ing Hypocrite

  8. grimreaper12 says: Apr 1, 2014 11:55 PM

    Who’s going to throw him the ball? I’m telling you with a full offseason and reps with the first team Kirk Cousins could develop into a top 10 QB.

  9. skeeeiins says: Apr 1, 2014 11:56 PM

    The future looks bright in Washington. HTTR

    Yes! Posse 2.0!

  11. Big Blue On You says: Apr 1, 2014 11:56 PM

    Can’t wait to see this team implode with two huge egomaniacs in RGMe & Meshean.

    Wonder how the R-words are going to pay their draft picks now that they have no Cap-Space left signing this Gansta?

  12. unclerayray52 says: Apr 1, 2014 11:57 PM

    I want to know how much they paid him. My guess is they overpaid.

  13. sellie69 says: Apr 1, 2014 11:57 PM

    Good fit.

  14. pbolyard says: Apr 1, 2014 11:58 PM

    Desean and Pierre will be a nice combo. Should make life a little easier for mr braces and braids

  15. mimitaroo says: Apr 1, 2014 11:58 PM

    Same old redskins. Signing the big names. Learn from your mistakes already.

  16. jetsfaninindy says: Apr 1, 2014 11:59 PM

    Match made in heaven. Welcome to the land of 7-9 Desean!

  17. connorchew says: Apr 1, 2014 11:59 PM

    As an eagles fan it makes me sick to know that we have to play him twice a year, and thay we just gave him up for absolutely nothing. Not that he’s on another team necessarily.. but joining this team hurts

  18. paulnoga says: Apr 1, 2014 11:59 PM

    Right in the face of Chip Kelly, this years Josh McDaniels.

  19. dlr4skins says: Apr 1, 2014 11:59 PM

    That second trip to the trophy case with those Lombardi’s and World Championships mesmerized him.

    Sleep well Philly. Maybe Mr. Snyder will let you see them someday.

    WOW!

  23. 4d9erdynasty says: Apr 2, 2014 12:01 AM

    i guess he doesnt’t want to try and win a ring. What a waste, cant blame him its all about the money.

  24. jadmakaveli says: Apr 2, 2014 12:02 AM

    Hate or not, this was a real good pick up for the Skins.

  25. bengalbowl says: Apr 2, 2014 12:02 AM

    And Snyder makes his annual mistake of paying a mediocre talent elite money.

  26. haileysbadoldad says: Apr 2, 2014 12:02 AM

    Of course one visit was enough. When the most popular team in sports wants you how can you pass it up? When you get tweets from Kevin Durant, Dale Jr, Wale, and of course the greatest qb in the land wanting you to sign you can’t help but feel giddy. Welcome to town Desean! Can’t wait until your passed the Lombardi from RG3. Man I love Washington DC!

  27. amishninjas says: Apr 2, 2014 12:02 AM

    A diva WR with a diva QB and a diva DB. What could possibly go wrong?

  28. claimersays says: Apr 2, 2014 12:03 AM

    YES, finally. No more D Jax speculation! Welcome to the Redskins DeSean

  29. fantom21 says: Apr 2, 2014 12:03 AM

    YEESSSSSSSS!!!!!! I don’t care what the haters have to say, this signing makes us the favorites to win the NFC east next year! We filled every hole in free agency so when the draft comes along, it’s BPA BABY!!! #HTTR

  30. loviesboysinthetampa2 says: Apr 2, 2014 12:03 AM

    The writing was on the wall

    If only they had a qb…

  32. commonsensedude says: Apr 2, 2014 12:05 AM

    Dan Snyder must have agreed to throw in the $200,000 in cash that DJ got stolen from his car.

  33. penvik says: Apr 2, 2014 12:05 AM

    Gonna stick it to the Eagles. Griffen Jackson should be fun to watch

  34. rainponcho87 says: Apr 2, 2014 12:06 AM

    Well played Baalke. Give DeSean some negotiating leverage, make Snyder pay top dollar.

  35. mrneto72 says: Apr 2, 2014 12:06 AM

    Goes to show what kind of guy he is…he wanted to join the Raiders so bad and then he ended up agreeing to terms with the first team he visited, either that or he has a green light in Cali…proof is he has signed with a team with no real QB

  36. mnesmith77 says: Apr 2, 2014 12:07 AM

    Nice signing, I can’t wait to see the terms of the contract

  37. shadytherealmccoy says: Apr 2, 2014 12:07 AM

    Snyder ha a shiny new toy. It’s worked the last 20 years,why change what’s been workin. Invest all your $$$ in 5-star free agents and neglect the O-Line and D-Line. I’m sure that contract won’t put a strain on their ability to acquire depth along the lines… No worries for the rest of the East. Ignorance is Bliss!!!

  38. nwfisch says: Apr 2, 2014 12:08 AM

    Another Redskin bust #burgundyandgoldfailure

  39. bucuup says: Apr 2, 2014 12:08 AM

    I figured he would go to the bills so he could rep his blue on Sundays. Oh well Snyder with another big name/big money deal. I hope this one works out for skins fans sake

  40. stoutfiles says: Apr 2, 2014 12:08 AM

    As a sad Skins fan, please show up to play DeSean. Very weary of this deal.

  41. jdotkeys says: Apr 2, 2014 12:08 AM

    why does Dan Snyder think he can buy a SuperBowl? Hasn’t he learned the NFl just doesn’t work that way yet?

  42. redandgoldhitman52 says: Apr 2, 2014 12:09 AM

    whoever offers the most money is where desean goes.he wouldve agreed to be batman’s butler if he gave desean the most garanteed money.

    Honestly, who’s surprised?

  44. football111223344 says: Apr 2, 2014 12:10 AM

    Washington has a terrible track record with Philly’s leftovers. Haha What a circus… Leave it to Daniel Snyder… BREAKING NEWS!!!! RG3 stinks. Can’t win with a terrible QB and even worse defense…. No team wins by building outside in. Washington just doesn’t get it.

  45. arkangeist says: Apr 2, 2014 12:10 AM

    RG3 is going to sling the rock so deep so many times to this guy. Just take a safety out the box and let Morris run buck wild. Use the draft for O-line and HERE WE GO!!! HTTR! 3 wins to SUPERBOWL in one offseason! THIS YEAR IS DIFFERENT!

  46. parenthesis78 says: Apr 2, 2014 12:11 AM

    I’m excited for my skins …. Two number 1 wr’s … Might be high scoring … Well need it cuz that defense still can’t stop anyone …

  47. badmoonrison says: Apr 2, 2014 12:11 AM

    Terrible news for Philly. They just hurt themselves AND helped their rival all in less than a week. No other way to spin it if youre honest with yourself. At least it will make that matchup interesting 2X a year. Shame on Phillys front office.

  48. theycallmescavenger says: Apr 2, 2014 12:11 AM

    Wow. Let’s hope he can turn a new leaf (and not an illegal one) in D.C. I predict the Redskins are widely mocked for this move, but if DeSean actually shows up, this could a be a truly lethal offense. I’ll be excited to see how it goes.

  49. ara35 says: Apr 2, 2014 12:11 AM

    Good old Washington, where former Eagles’ careers go to die.

    No doubt he’ll light up our secondary two times a year, but they won’t make the playoffs. Bad move on his part.

  50. seahawkshurtpeople says: Apr 2, 2014 12:12 AM

    When I read the headline I spontaneously threw up in my coffee in disgust.

    Then I read the article, started shaking, and spontaneously drank some of the coffee to calm down and vomited again.

    How does Snyder keep pulling golden rabbits out of his arse in free agency!!??

    He has minimal cap space, a front office in disarray, an unproven pudgy coach with a speech impediment, a qb that’s a team cancer and hobbles around like he’s got a prosthetic leg, no 1st round draft picks until the next decade and still he can attract top talent to his team.

    I hate the Redskins but they’ve got one damn scary passing attack now. They just need to pray that RG gets healthy and their o-line protects him.

  51. sportsbastard says: Apr 2, 2014 12:12 AM

    They are still gonna stink.

  52. eagleseagleseagles says: Apr 2, 2014 12:12 AM

    I guess it is true when they say one frachise’s trash is another franchise’s treasure. As an Eagles fan…some notes to pass along to you Redskins fans.
    1) Don’t expect the most effort.
    2) He cares more about his rap career.
    3) Get used to hearing and seeing #jaccpot a lot.
    4) He’s really fast.
    5) He’s very scared of going across the middle.

    None of the Eagles fans think he was released because he had gang ties…….his work ethic and him not buying into Chips system is the reason he was released (even though he had a career year).

  53. jaxjoe says: Apr 2, 2014 12:12 AM

    Wow… I didn’t expect this to happen. Look out Philly because there’s an angry man coming to town.

  54. snyper94z28 says: Apr 2, 2014 12:12 AM

    Bada bing. Kinda like deon sanders was back in the day. Hated him, but if he played for my team support him 100. You tend to not like the best guys on other teams, well because they are good. Rg3 gets bashed all the time, good!! Means hes hated because hes good.

  55. donnymacjack says: Apr 2, 2014 12:12 AM

    Nice! This outta make Harblow happy. He lost his counter to Percy Harvin. :)

  56. Mr. Craig says: Apr 2, 2014 12:13 AM

    Buyer Beware!! Redskins did not do their due diligence as 49ers and Raiders did. Reminds me of another old saying, “Haste Makes Waste.” Be careful what you want as you may get it.

  57. orakpocalypse says: Apr 2, 2014 12:13 AM

    Best WR corps in the NFL. Name a better one. You can’t! Hail!

    Wasting his career on a terrible team with a below average qb. Get your popcorn ready this will end badly. What a joke of a team.

    That’s a lot of speed on the field. Tough to cover Jackson, garçon on the outside. Roberts and Moss in the slot position will be a go to option for RGIII.

  67. nfl4days says: Apr 2, 2014 12:19 AM

    RG3 and Alfred Morris have smiling pretty big right now.

    A selfish, me-first, entitled wide receiver attempting to catch poorly thrown balls from a selfish, me-first, entitled quarterback.

  73. drbrown7451 says: Apr 2, 2014 12:22 AM

    IF RG3 can stay healthy this could be a pretty good receiving corp. It will be interesting.

    Prepare for a clash of the titanic egos in D.C. this fall.

  75. chinahand11 says: Apr 2, 2014 12:24 AM

    Now this signing makes the Skins receiving corps relevant again. I am curious to see what happens in the upcoming season, wish him and the QB best of luck.

    also LOL at all the raiders fans and their fail campaign to try to push Desean to Oakland. He wants to go to the AFC West and get owned every year?

  92. bearflagfan says: Apr 2, 2014 12:32 AM

    Is it at least $30M over 3 years? Because that was what Philly would have to pay. This has always been about a financial commitment that was too big for his role in Kelly’s offense.

  93. chrisk61 says: Apr 2, 2014 12:32 AM

    well the eagles-skins gms just got much more interesting. i wonder if the nfl will quickly factor this transaction into finalization of schedules. i could see skins at eagles first mnf gm.

    on the field jackson is explosive but gets shut down in big games. and let’s see how he fits into the wash locker room. i suspect he ultimately isn’t the “missing piece” to turn wash around. he will have good stats and make many plays but ultimately wash fans will say he was good but not worth the money.

  94. eaglesnoles05 says: Apr 2, 2014 12:34 AM

    Good luck with all that yardage and tds and production… Smh.

  95. chrisk61 says: Apr 2, 2014 12:34 AM

    and wash along with rest of nfc east plays the nfc west this yr. the nfc west…a div full of brutal defenses. i wonder if diminutive jackson can make it thru those gms.

  96. krookface says: Apr 2, 2014 12:34 AM

    Now for all my Skins fans, accept this signing as a dynamic offensive positive, but let’s not lose our heads over this. We still have a ton of holes to fill, so let’s take one step at a time! HTTR!!

  97. skins1970 says: Apr 2, 2014 12:36 AM

    Very disappointed in this move. Would much rather of seen Dan Snyder pull one of his typical Dan Snyder moves and sign a big name free agent, like Eric Decker, right after midnight when free agency opened. Now we are stuck with another egotistical prima donna that will hurt this team more then help it.

  111. redskinsbeast says: Apr 2, 2014 12:49 AM

    Will be a costly addition, but he is a play maker and opens up the whole field for the offense. Your gonna have to pick your poison between Jackson and Garcon. This will even give Griffin more room to run if needed. Alfred is gonna get chunks of yards in the middle of the field. The defense will always have to watch for Jackson. A pissed off Jackson will be fun to watch when playing the Eagirls. …HAIL!!!!

  112. pr0jecktpat says: Apr 2, 2014 12:50 AM

    A huge signing for the Skins that instantly makes them much better on the offensive side of the ball. Still huge concerns on defense though since they didn’t really address any needs in the secondary yet (other than signing has beens). A good draft performance is a must to fill the remaining holes.

  113. drunkwino says: Apr 2, 2014 12:50 AM

    I guess Synder just couldn’t resist making another fantasy football type signing.

  114. number1hawkfan says: Apr 2, 2014 12:51 AM

    So Washington blew their cap on a mediocre team. On top of that they have no young talent to step into the roles they won’t be able to afford in the future. Destined to copy the cowboys for the next decade. Every knuckle head analyst will say wow, with that talented roster why can’t they win?? It’s because they have a handleful of studs and the rest are duds.

  115. shatho1 says: Apr 2, 2014 12:57 AM

    good for DJAX but it won’t make too much of a difference the skins will still suck!

  116. jsp418 says: Apr 2, 2014 12:58 AM

    3-13 team is now 3-13 + drama

  117. govtminion says: Apr 2, 2014 12:59 AM

    Normally I balk at Snyder’s big free-agent signings (and with good reason!), but… ok, this is a good one. Assuming that A) he keeps his off the field shenanigans to a minimum, and B) that the guy throwing the football to Jackson next season can actually do so.

    If RGIII is healthy, adding Jackson to this could make for a pretty interesting Redskins team next year, I’ll admit.

  118. aldog83 says: Apr 2, 2014 12:59 AM

    Probably 3 yrs 27 million.

    9 mil per with a chance to get one more deal at 30.

    Well played Desean.

    Better facilities.

    Better QB.

    Than Oakland….

    Too Bad NFC East does not come to Black Hole this year…..

    I would have liked to see the RAIDERS new Defense against Djax. After spurning a homecoming.

    WAR !!! Sammy Watkins!

    3 years? I’ll set the over/under at $24million.

    sure DJAX, could bring explosiveness but he will also bring his baggage and drama as well…when things go wrong, DeSean will whine like a “Big Baby” and take off on plays..good luck with this Diva Redskin Fans

  128. sndflyers says: Apr 2, 2014 1:34 AM

    DeSean is an awesome player and I have no Complaints about his time here in Philly. However it seems blatantly apparent he signed in Washington to be sour, petty, and try to get revenge. Which might suggest the rumors about his narcissistic attitude are true. He’s a me first guy. He could’ve gone anywhere but he jumps the gun to go play in wack Washington. The eternal basement dwellers of the NFC east. He can’t take the idea that he was expendable, replaceable and forgettable. I like Desean but jumping the gun to sign there is just to be immature and be another dude to rob Dan Snyder, who will surely over pay. Chip Kelly is doing things the right way.

  146. randallwoodfield says: Apr 2, 2014 2:54 AM

    That’s the perfect team for him. Now Washington has a QB and #1 WR that believe they are more important than the rest of the team. A QB that is disliked by most of his current team and a prima donna WR that was disliked by all of his former team should do really well together.

  151. ninerz49 says: Apr 2, 2014 3:26 AM

    Speaking in terms of on field talent, WOW! D-Jax running go routes to clear the middle of the field for Garcon & Reed in the short/intermediate passing game? Then if all those options are covered, RGIII, coming back fully recovered from the ACL reconstruction and without a knee brace, taking off? This Washington offense just got so much better than what people might actually think of it with the signing. The potential Jay Gruden has with his new toys and the options he has to run his scheme is absurd.

    All they need to do is fix up that defense. It was only a year ago this was a team that reached the playoffs and on the verge of beating the Seahawks before RGIII re-injured his knee. I’m no fan of the Redskins (Die hard 49ers fan, but glad we didn’t sign Jackson due to his contract/off field issues as well as us needing to re-sign our own players long term) but IF (Huge IF) D-Jax has his head straight and doesn’t associate with the wrong crowd to get him into trouble, this is robbery for the Redskins and what he can bring to that offense with the other playmakers around. This is the ideal type of offense you should build around for RGIII; now it’s time for him to prove why the Redskins traded away almost 2 draft classes for his rights.

  152. scgentleman98 says: Apr 2, 2014 3:53 AM

    As a Redskins fan I’m not too happy about this signing unless the team really address the defense (safety and right tackle) in the draft. Plus I’m curious to see how his contract is structured.

  153. whodeydynasty says: Apr 2, 2014 3:59 AM

    Best rb in the game are:

  157. fink says: Apr 2, 2014 4:36 AM

    Great potential for the offense. Now – can they make it work?

    Can the Redskins also pull together a defense that can get an opposing offense off the field?

    Oh, and what about fixing a historically horrid special teams unit? Desean’s a great receiving threat but his kick return averages were ho-hum.

    Still a lot of questions. You don’t fix 3-13 with one player and a new coach.

  162. dennisatunity says: Apr 2, 2014 5:08 AM

    I think Jackson is an exceptional talent, but you really have to try and figure out what the Redskins are thinking. It’s almost as if they said, “We sold the franchise for the RG3 and while that nearly destroyed the future of the organization, the destruction wasn’t quite complete. The money that Jackson will cost us, coupled with his locker room demeanor and likely gang ties should finish the job.”

    With that arsenal of weapons RG3&13 will have no excuses left and no one to blame but himself if the Redskins falter this upcoming season.

    Morris, Reed, Garcon, Jackson, Moss, Roberts.

    If RGMe doesn’t turn it around this season he’s a bust.

  167. bbenz1975 says: Apr 2, 2014 5:31 AM

    Well that changes our draft board. Can’t believe we were able to grab him. His attitude scares me but his production does not. Scary offensive weapons that Gruden has to plan with.

    Chip Kelly did a great job in his first season as HC, but I always wonder about coaches who cut a high maintenance valuable player, ostensibly because the player doesn’t buy into the coach’s system.

    I always thought the truly special coaches find a way to swallow their egos and handle a high maintenance player like Jackson, instead of taking the “my way or the highway approach”, which is what Kelly seemed to do with Jackson.

  210. getyourownname says: Apr 2, 2014 8:26 AM

    It took longer becaauew DAnny had to build another shelf to hold the additional spring championship trophy, his old one was full.

    Here we go again. The Skins always win the off-season championship, then lay a huge turd when the REAL playing starts.

    Skins fans: you do NOT have 3 Super Bowls. Strike year championships are JOKES. No one takes the Skins “legacy” seriously.

    Enjoy yet another year at the bottom. For 15 years straight, the Skins have been below .500 in December and this year will be no different.

  214. eagleswin says: Apr 2, 2014 8:47 AM

    One reason that Jackson had so many catches last year was the Eagles lack of other quality WRs.

    Now that Jackson goes to a team where Garcon is the clear #1 WR and Jackson is back to being the second receiving option will the Redskins fans be happy with the deal if Jackson only get’s 800-900 yards a year at 8 mill/yr?

  215. Marcus says: Apr 2, 2014 8:48 AM

    Hey, Chip, you do we realize we don’t have a corner that can cover him, right? And we don’t have a safety that can provide help, either.

    All I can say is that you better be right.

  216. skins1970 says: Apr 2, 2014 8:52 AM

    Tell me how did the Redskins win the offseason? We only signed one big name! This is the first time since 2009 the Skins have signed a big name FA agent.

  217. enkay85 says: Apr 2, 2014 9:20 AM

    Agreed – Skins were very prudent the last 3 years in FA due to cap penalty or otherwise.

    This contract is minimal risk (10.5, 9.5, 8.5 respectively each year) and the team is in GREAT cap shape for 2016 & 2017.

    This move makes the offense better. You want to talk about teams “winning” the offseason and throwing money around go look at Denver and New England, or did people forget how much money were spent on aging players like Ware, Talib & Revis?

    Not sure why Chip Kelly is taking the heat for releasing DeSean. Is he the GM as well?

    And, odd how the Skins fans are all claiming to be NFC East Champs already… It takes a lot more than 1 added player to win.. Hell, look what a mess the Eagles were in 2011 with the Vince Young referenced Team. And that was what, 8 or 9 players..

    Eagles letting go of Desean is stupid. the kid is a rock star. so deal with it. not every other player has his talents.. But now our secondary gets to face him at least 2x.. I sure hope Chip took notes from that New Orleans loss in the playoffs on how to keep Jackson out of a game..
