Wide receiver DeSean Jackson would like to leave the Rams before Tuesday’s trade deadline and the Rams are open to making it happen.

NFL Media reported that the Rams and Jackson have agreed to look for a trade in the coming days. Jackson signed a one-year deal with the Rams this offseason.

Rams head coach Sean McVay confirmed the report and said, via Mike Garafolo of NFL Media, the team has given Jackson permission to find “opportunities he’s deserving of” with another team. He also said Jackson will not play this weekend.

Jackson has only played 100 offensive snaps over the first seven weeks of the season and he was on the field for just four snaps in last Sunday’s win over the Lions. He has caught eight passes for 221 yards, including a 75-yard touchdown pass in a Week Three win over the Buccaneers.

There’s no word on potential landing spots, but developments on Sunday could create needs that teams look to Jackson to fill in the second half of the season.

  1. Probably figures he might as well make the money riding the bench on the IR because that’s where he’s gonna be after a game or two of taking the majority of snaps.

  2. Was never a route runner just like chad Johnson.. just a run guy.. Recievers Now have to run routes to be productive.. he’s a dime a dozen ..can pay someone alot less who’s younger off the practice squad.. he’s junk !!

  3. Well its time to hang it up. Slow and a big pain in the butt, always was a diva. His only highlight will always be crossing the end zone and tossing the ball before he scored to start flexing like a fool. Now that would be taunting for sure!

  4. This is a bummer. The way he connected with Stafford on deep balls in the first couple of games was exciting. He showed that he still has jet speed. But I totally get him wanting to go elsewhere. The Rams have a lot of WRs having great seasons. It was getting harder to slide him into the rotation when others were playing well.

    Someone will want his skills.
