Does this mean we're not signing Eddie Royal?......

Re: Redskins Sign DeSean Jackson

Skins rolled the dice. He fills two needs. Hopefully the coaches can manage Jackson's issues when he catches 3 balls. Good job Bruce Allen. Skins are having a solid off season.

Re: Redskins Sign DeSean Jackson

Starting to realize that smaller receivers are just as much a staple of Redskins culture as "The Hogs." Heck at this rate Pierre Garcon at 6'0 might be considered a giant by Redskin standards. The great Art Monk of course not withstanding.

It's also kind of funny that this is the second time we've gotten a mulligan on a smallish receiver we passed over on on draft day in favor of a 'taller' possession type. Go back to 2001 when the Redskins drafted Rod Gardner 15th overall, only to see Santana Moss go one pick later to the Jets at 16 overall.

Then of course the fabled 2008 draft where we passed over Desean twice in favor of drafting Devin Thomas at 34 and Fred Davis at 48. Desean then went one pick later to the Eagles at 49th overall.

If this isn't fate I don't know what is.
2001:


2008


One more thing I noticed. Jets and Eagles both have green as their primary colors.

At some point in our first game were going to line up garçon, Jackson, Roberts and reed on second and short and the secondary is simply going to retreat to the end zone.
This pulls the safeties out of the box. Alf is a near shoe-in for 1,600 yards.

Re: Redskins Sign DeSean Jackson

Great move, I like what we have done in FA prior to DJax. Now this doesn't make me feel anything but better about our team. 3/24 15 mil guaranteed? Great deal for both parties. I am somewhat shocked. Think we got a decent deal

Not a bad contract. Bruce doing another marvelous job.

Re: Redskins Sign DeSean Jackson

Riley Cooper: 5 yr 25mil
Eric Decker 5 yr 36 mil
Golden Tate 5 yr 31 mil

Golden Tate got the Paul Kruger deal this year, one that Detriot will regret for years, he's a terrible player, a #2, borderline #3.

Riley Cooper is a clear #2 and got 25 mil, possession guy. A guy who is not a game changer, but can make some unbelievable 8 yard receptions.

Eric Decker flat robbed the bank. He ends up in a spot where he has to be the man and gets no help. The Jets front office is a joke, this is the worst of all the contracts. He's a borderline #2, more like a #3.


Folks we get a game changer for 3 years at 24 million. 24 million. A #1 WR, the biggest deep threat receiver in the game today. Wow

It definitely makes one wonder what the real reason is for Philly letting him go.

Re: Redskins Sign DeSean Jackson

Pretty reasonable contract, but still don't like the overall amount we spend on the WR position. But then I remind myself that we have cheap RBs and TEs who are capable of producing at a high level. So, we overpay for WRs and underpay for RBs and TEs. Evens out I guess.
