DeSean Jackson “dialed in” with Matthew Stafford

Rams cornerback Jalen Ramsey wondered why the Rams didn’t make a stronger push to land Julio Jones in a trade with the Falcons, but the team’s current wide receivers seem pretty sure the team’s got enough on that front.

Robert Woods said last month that the team is loaded at the position and Cooper Kupp thinks the versatility of the group is going to be a strength. On Tuesday, DeSean Jackson shared his belief that the Rams are “definitely a scary group” for opposing defenses.

Jackson and all of the other receivers have to get used to working with Matthew Stafford in order to fully unleash the unit’s potential. Jackson made that sound like a pretty simple undertaking when he spoke to reporters.

“You continue to be great and just throw the ball, and I’m going to continue to be great and just run past everybody and use my speed,” Jackson said, via Gary Klein of the Los Angeles Times. “I think that’s the good niche about us, we’re just going to be dialed in and just continuously just learn the plays — and once the season starts, we’ll be in rare . . . form.”

Stafford’s arrival has sparked a lot of optimism about how the Rams will look on offense in 2021. Landing Jones would likely have added to that feeling, but seeing him go to Tennessee hasn’t dampened the outlook in Los Angeles.

  1. As an Eagles fan I will be a little annoyed this year if DJax remains healthy. He basically had one healthy game in 2 years where he played a full complement of snaps for the Eagles, Week 1 2019.

    Even for the few games he was technically “healthy” in 2020 the team didn’t want to risk him getting another injury so they didn’t play him much so what was the point of paying him $27 mill over 2 years for 25 TOTAL receptions and lots of social media posts?

  2. looking forward to see Matthew Stafford light it up in LA. No hard feelings from this Lions fan

  3. Wonder if Las Vegas has any odds on when these two will be hurt …………… at the same time?

  4. DeSean Jackson will be “dialed in” for 5 of the 17 games…the other 12 on the injured list like every other year.

  5. Calvin Johnson (1), Golden Tate (7), Marvin Jones (9), Kenny Golladay (15) and Brandon Pettifrew (17) all in the top 20 All-Time Lions WRs and all played with Stafford. But everybody acts like the Lions never gave him anybody to throw to.

  6. He’s guaranteed to catch at least one 50+ yd TD, but also guaranteed to pull up gimp at some point too. Unlike the iggles, the Rams have some depth at WR and whatever they get from DJax will be a nice bonus.

    Who rushed for 1,000 yards when Stafford was there?
