Report: Chiefs not pursuing DeSean Jackson


The list of DeSean Jackson’s potential suitors has reportedly shrunk by one team.

The Chiefs are “out” of the running for Jackson, Ian Rapoport of NFL Media reported on Saturday night.

Jackson, whom the Eagles released Friday, played for current Chiefs head coach Andy Reid for the first five seasons of his NFL career.

It’s unclear why the Chiefs aren’t in the mix for Jackson, though Rapoport reports that the club did do its “due diligence” in considering the three-time Pro Bowl receiver.

Jackson will visit Washington on Monday.

A seventh-year player from Cal, the 5-foot-10, 175-pound Jackson caught 82 passes for 1,336 yards and nine scores in 2013 for the Eagles.
