DeSean Jackson signs with Redskins
Three-time Pro Bowl receiver DeSean Jackson is joining the Washington Redskins.
Jackson's publicist tweeted Tuesday night the former Philadelphia Eagles wideout was signing with the Redskins after two days of meeting with coaches and officials.
Jackson arrived in the D.C. area Monday night and spent much of Tuesday at Redskins Park while his agent and the agent negotiated with the front office.
Jackson set career-highs with 82 catches for 1,332 yards last season for the NFC East champion Eagles, but Philadelphia tried to trade him and then cut him last week amid reports of off-the-field concerns. Jackson issued a statement denying he was associated with gang activity.
