The DeSean Jackson story has seemingly had it all lately, but no free agent pursuit is official without a good “mystery team.”
Now, he’s got that covered.
According to Ed Werder of ESPN, “two teams not identified publicly as having interest in DeSean Jackson are in deep negotiations.”
Jackson is in Washington today, though it’s “unclear” if the Redskins are willing to meet his price. The Raiders and Bills have been amoung the usual suspects from the start, along with the Jets and the 49ers. Since they’ve all been named, that would ostensibly cross them off.
The Chiefs and Panthers, among others, have made it clear they weren’t in on this deal.
The great thing about a mystery team is that it could be anyone. (Let’s just toss the Browns in there, they’re always good for a splash.) Or it could be no one. But having two of them only adds a layer of intrigue to a process that had plenty already.
