DeSean Jackson rumors have taken an interesting turn. Two teams are apparently negotiating with the receiver if new DeSean Jackson rumors are to be believed. The former member of the Philadelphia Eagles was meeting with the Washington Redskins on Monday (March 31), but that might not be the only team trying to sign the Pro Bowl receiver. According to a report from ESPN, there are two other teams that have entered into discussions with his agent and they are reportedly new to the equation. It certainly creates a new wrinkle when it comes to predicting where he will play during the 2014 NFL season.
A source told ESPN that, "There have been negotiations in the past 24 hours. Two teams nobody has mentioned as being interested are deep in negotiations. They are engaged with multiple clubs." The story is fresh enough that most analysts aren't even attaching teams to the story just yet, but it will likely be front page news if the identities get leaked. It was reportedly previously that when the Eagles released him that at least nine teams reached out to his agent. That's a lot of interest and seems to just about guarantee that he won't remain a free agent for much longer.
It had seemed like DeSean Jackson rumors were at a peak when the Philadelphia Eagles were trying to trade him earlier in March, but the interest level among NFL fans seems to have risen even higher with the possibility that he could be with a new franchise very soon. There are a lot of teams that could use a receiver and that includes the San Francisco 49ers, Seattle Seahawks, and Carolina Panthers. If a franchise is willing to meet what must be a huge asking price and have the patience to take on a troubled player like this one, then a deal should take place within the next few days.
Fantasy football owners will want to pay close attention to how the situation plays out because it will dictate his value in 2014 drafts.
