DeSean Jackson to sign three-year deal with Washington Redskins

New, comments

Both receivers the Bills targeted in free agency, DeSean Jackson and Kenny Britt, have now signed with other teams.

Evan Habeeb-US PRESSWIRE

The Buffalo Bills were reportedly in on the bidding war for free agent wide receiver DeSean Jackson, but they're not in it anymore: Jackson, per multiple reports, will sign a three-year deal with the Washington Redskins today.

Jackson, released by the Philadelphia Eagles late last week, made his first and last free agent visit with Washington over parts of Monday and Tuesday, with a deal agreed to late Tuesday night. He'll make $24 million over those three years, with $16 million guaranteed.

For Buffalo, it means that two free agent receivers that they showed interest in - Jackson and Kenny Britt, who signed a one-year deal with the St. Louis Rams - are now off of the market. For now, the top of their receiver depth chart (Stevie Johnson, Robert Woods, T.J. Graham and Marquise Goodwin) remains intact. As the 2014 NFL Draft approaches, however, you can expect the fact that the Bills pursued higher-profile free agent receivers to be used as evidence that they may be thinking receiver with their No. 9 overall pick.
