DeSean Jackson visited Washington over the last few days. And before he leaves the nation’s capital, he might become the wide receiver of their football team.
NBC News 4 Washington is reporting that the controversial player has agreed to terms with the Washington Redskins and could sign a three-year contract as early as Wednesday. While the signing is still unofficial, Jackson himself gave clues on where he’ll be playing next on social media:

Despite coming off the best season of his career, the Philadelphia Eagles released him on Friday apparently because of alleged “gang connections”. Jackson finished with 1,332 receiving yards on 82 passes with the Eagles in the 2013-2014 season. After getting released by Philadelphia, Jackson denied the reports that he had gang ties.

Other wide receivers in Washington are Santana Moss, Pierre Garcon and Andre Roberts. With the addition of Pro Bowl WR in DeSean Jackson, quarterback Robert Griffin III will have more options to target.
