Can someone find me a list of the number of times DeSean Jackson has been arrested? I didn’t get a wink of sleep last night because I was looking for it everywhere. Couldn’t find it. So weird. But what I did find was he has more catches than any other WR for 40+ yards since 2008. I did notice he had over 1300 receiving yards and 9 TDs last year. And what I do know is the Skins just brought in a first round talent in a year where they don’t have a first round pick, only gave him a 3 year deal.
Does he play defense? Of course not. But there’s no defense talent out there who can make game changing plays. And DeSean is a game changing talent. With a healthy RG3, (or healthy-ish, because let’s be real, that knee won’t ever be the same) this is one of the most dynamic offenses in the league. They can’t stack the box against Alfred Morris. They can double team either DeSean or Garcon, but then that opens up the other, or Jordan Reed, one of the better pass-catching tight ends in the league. And RG3 still has his scrambling ability.
I am elated about this signing. If DeSean can keep his attitude together, there’s no reason not to be very, very optimistic about this team this year.
