DeSean Jackson Signs Three Year Contract with the Redskins


That gives new meaning to the phrase “one and done”.

Published reports this morning are indicating that DeSean Jackson and his free agent tour are over as quickly as they began. DeSean made one visit, to the Washington Redskins, and he has decided to make it his next home, signing a three year, $24 million contract. The kicker is the guaranteed money, $16 million.

The contract marks a first in NFL history. It’s the first time in league history that a player has changed teams after posting 80+ receptions and 1,200+ receiving yards in the previous seasons.

Hopefully you all realize that if these were the numbers that DeSean Jackson was looking for, there is no chance in the universe that the Jets would be players in signing this guy.

$16 million is a lot of guaranteed money, and John Idzik is not in the business of overspending his team’s cap space.

For anyone who wishes he would, don’t forget where we were before he got here. We are out of cap hell now, thanks to John.

    Out of cap hell..rapidly headed towards talent hell! Washington signed him for 8 million/per. 16 million guaranteed, that;s two seasons guaranteed money, at his age he he’ll easily play out that contract. Let’s begin to look at this, Idzik is being cheap….at times he’s made favorable moves, at others when he could have pulled the trigger and spent, he did not. I know I tried to hang in with this guy’s approach, I thought he was being frugal, buying for value, and looking out for the future of his cap situation. Now I just think he’s looking out for Woody’s purse! Passing on Jackson to acquire Ford? Passing on every CB in free agency, then signing Patterson? Sorry guys…but these aren’t smart signings….this is just plain cheap. If you shop at the dollar store for value….you’ll find the products are less then valuable!

      Agreed, the draft idea of using rookies to fill vacancies is not the best plan. Rookies play best when they are not relied on to start. Sign Jackson and the Captain for $13 mill a year for the next 3 years and draft BPA 1st, 2nd round and fill needs the rest of the way. We would have a strong WR and DL group and an improved DB group. The Plan seems like Idzik watched the movie “Money Ball” and had a great idea.
