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.
