Free agent wide receiver DeSean Jackson will make his first visit to the Washington Redskins this week, while the Buffalo Bills remain interested in his services, per several reports from this past weekend. From Ian Rapoport of NFL.com:
Buffalo does its work quietly, and that’s how research & recruitment of DeSean Jackson is happening. Imagine DeSean + CJ Spiller. Scary— Ian Rapoport (@RapSheet) March 30, 2014
Tim Graham of The Buffalo News added that the Bills are interested in pursuing Jackson on the free agent market, but only at the right price.
Source tells me any Bills interest in DeSean Jackson would be for a predetermined price. Bills won't get into a bidding war.— Tim Graham (@ByTimGraham) March 29, 2014
Bills are doing their due diligence on DeSean Jackson. Could happen. Some fans say Bills are set at WR, but he's better than any of them.— Tim Graham (@ByTimGraham) March 30, 2014
Buffalo has shown interest in receivers all offseason. They hosted Kenny Britt on a free agent visit recently, and have also been linked to two top 2014 NFL Draft receiving prospects, Sammy Watkins and Mike Evans. Jackson is a different receiver type than the taller Britt and Evans, and isn't even as physically imposing as the 6'1" Watkins, but the 5'10", 178-pound Jackson is still just 27 years old and has made the Pro Bowl in three of his six pro seasons while hauling in 356 receptions for 6,117 yards and 32 touchdowns.
Jackson's free agency tour will really heat up this week, so we're bound to find out sooner or later exactly how interested the Bills are.
