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:

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.

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.
