Many teams are interested in free-agent wide receiver DeSean Jackson. We heard the Redskins met with him earlier on Tuesday. The Oakland Raiders are also a team interested in the talented receiver, but two other teams, the 49ers and Browns, are now reportedly linked to him, according to NBC Sports.
The 49ers would be an interesting fit with quarterback Colin Kaepernick and also having wide receivers Anquan Boldin, Quinton Patton and tight end Vernon Davis as other weapons in the offense. The 49ers, fresh off another NFC Championship appearance, would love to bring in a vertical threat that could make Kaepernick even better next season. Jackson fits the bill perfectly.
The Browns would be intriguing as well. Jackson could team up with stud wide receiver Josh Gordon, who was among the leading pass catchers in the league in 2013. The only question for Jackson if the Browns win the sweepstakes is who will play quarterback? Brian Hoyer is the only notable signal-caller on the squad with Brandon Weeden getting the axe and eventually signing with the Dallas Cowboys. However, he’s in rehab from a torn ACL he suffered last season.
The Redskins were considered the leader in the clubhouse, but is seeking out all his options at this point, so any team linked to the 27-year-old at this point is fair game.
