DeSean Jackson, the former California Golden Bear and Philadelphia Eagles wide receiver, is reportedly visiting the Washington Redskins today as part of his NFL Free Agency tour. Jackson, who caries a high price according to Pro Football Talk, is heavily coveted by Oakland Raiders fans, but is still going on this magical mystery tour.
What DeSean Jackson’s going to learn is that the fans of teams like the Redskins aren’t exactly totally jazzed about him joining them. Take a look at the Washington Redskins poll, where over 3,000 people responded. The result so far? 65 percent of fans want him, but 35 percent don’t want him.
That 35 percent is a large number. It means there’s a healthy minority of people who don’t support DeSean Jackson as a Washington Redskin.
DeSean Jackson should give the Oakland Raiders a deal the organization can swallow, and then come on home.
