Patriots, Cowboys reportedly interested in DeSean Jackson

Getty Images

As the negotiating window remains wide open, receiver DeSean Jackson has a couple of additional suitors.

Via the Washington Post, the Patriots and Cowboys have inquired about Jackson. Other interested teams are the Buccaneers and the Eagles.

The Patriots reportedly have offered their first-round pick to the Saints for receiver Brandin Cooks, which shows their desire to add a speedy receiver. The Cowboys would become even more dangerous on offense with a fleet-footed receiver to complement Dez Bryant.

Jackson has said he’ll take the best offer he gets; however, quarterback quality also will be a factor in his final decision.

    I can see Jackson with the Cowboys fitting in just fine with that freak show culture of Jones and co. He would be a good piece for the Patriots, but money talks loudest if I had to guess what is inside the mind of Jackson.

    has a better future with the Patriots or Cowboys…

  6. wib22 says: Mar 7, 2017 6:55 PM

    I wonder if the patriots offer the revis special, as a one year high money deal where the 2nd year salary is too high and will be voided.

  7. maust1013 says: Mar 7, 2017 6:57 PM

    The Cowboys interest is a little surprising. Even when Romo’s contract comes off the books they will not exactly be swimming in cap space and would seem to have more needs on the other side of the ball.

    Patriots can have what they want but until the NFL makes them start playing teams coming off their bye week, stop playing tough teams coming off short weeks while in a tough stretch, and allowing nfl personal to partying at Krafts “fundraisers” the patriots will continue to play the easiest schedule possible.

    Obviously he wants to be on the Dallas Cowboys. Every players does. It’s the most popular, valuable and highest profile sports team on the planet. Once Brady and Belichick are gone the Patriots will go back to being an average team nobody really follows, like before. The Dallas Cowboys will always be the most popular, even when they suck.

    Well, last year they twice played the Dolphins who were not coming off a bye week. But you also said “tough teams” so I guess that doesnt overturn your point.

    What if we made them play with their ankles taped together? That way if they still beat the dolphins at least it wouldnt be a blowout. (I dont think)

  30. tedmurph says: Mar 7, 2017 7:43 PM

    Don’t get DJackson. Don’t get why the Pats are looking for a WR either. This will be a really interesting offseason.

    ——————–

    I dont see the Pariots taking him either. Both Cowboys and Patriots have other places they need to spend the money more than on this.

    But yesterday his agent said that qb quality was a big factor. And today this rumor slips. So that paints a picture for the other teams that they need to pony up extra to overcome the difference between their qb and Tom Brady.

    Does his attitude match up with Garrett’s expectations? Probably not, but this man has some Bob Hayes qualities with his speed!

  34. rexgrossmanisgoat says: Mar 7, 2017 8:11 PM

    This is all absurd. I’m not saying DJax isn’t a great receiver, but the Cowboys are in salary cap purgatory and the Patriots would never give him the contract he wants.

    This is all to get bargaining power from Tampa who is probably looking at his injury history now and having some doubt.

    Agreed 100%. The schedule does not matter. You have to beat the teams that are on it. Look, I’m a Bills fan and you know I hate the Patriots, but it kills me when I hear other fans outside our conference that always say the Patriots play in a weak division. I can prove them wrong every time, you look at the AFC East and they do pretty darn well outside the conference. Those are facts.

    So was Moss, and that worked out just a little bit. I don’t think it’ll happen because BB won’t pay Jackson what he thinks he’s worth, but that doesn’t mean the idea isn’t a good one.

    “The day this punk goes to Dallas is the day I stop rooting for the Cowboys.”

    Yeah, because the Cowboys never have punks or criminals on their teams. I guess if Jackson was a rapist or drug addict he would fit the bill much better for you and Jerrah huh?

    Do you not understand yet how the football schedule is put together? How long have you been an NFL fan and still don’t know? Seriously?

    Saying things like that simply proves you don’t even care that you look stupid, you just say it anyway, kind of like Trump.

    I would rather see the Pats give up the first rounder for Cooks . Jackson is hurt a lot,and his reputation is not the greatest.

    Patriots SOS:

    2016: 23
    2015: 17
    2014: 4
    2013: 10
    2012: 20
    2011: 15
    2010: 5
    2009: 4
    2008: 28
    2007: 8
    2006: 4
    2005: 6
    2004: 1
    2003: 10

    So easiest year 2008, hardest year 2004, but since the average is about 11.35, I’d say on average their schedules are harder than most.

    Pittsburgh’s SOS in 2014 was 29 by the way, and 32 in 2013, when they could only manage 8-8.

  45. blackqbwhiterb says: Mar 7, 2017 9:52 PM

    I think he’d LOVE to run downfield and catch passes from Tom Brady, and he’d take less to do it. But he’d also love to stretch the field for Dak, and Jerruh will pay big bucks. Never know, maybe the Skins keep him & let Garçon walk

  46. razzlejag says: Mar 7, 2017 10:00 PM

    Fat chance he goes to the Patriots. No way is BB going to bring him into his locker room. No way.

    Wait, they cheat AND they play the easiest schedule?

    Aw man, no wonder they won 5 SuperBowls. Silly me, I thought it had to do with great coaching, great quarterback play, and a near obsession with practicing and planning.

    Maybe if the NFL suspends Brady for a quarter of the season and docks them a 1st round pick that’ll slow them dow……oh, nevermind.

  48. julyeast says: Mar 7, 2017 11:36 PM

    if Bill TRADED for Moss coming off 2005 and 2006 why would anyone think he would not take Jackson? Love him or hate him, you must respect him. and this comes from someone that owns Namath McNeil Chrebet & Mangold jerseys.
