Report: DeSean Jackson To Get More Than Eric Decker’s $36.25M


I’d be shocked if DeSean Jackson left D.C. without a deal, and reports suggest life really could be looking up.

Jackson is in Washington getting a physical Monday night and Ian Rapoport is reporting that DeSean Jackson will be a Redskin if Dan Snyder shows him the money.

Appearing on “NFL Total Access,” NFL Media Insider Ian Rapoport confirmed the Redskins do have a chance to “seal the deal” if they can reach agreement by Tuesday afternoon.

Jackson is “beyond the one-year, ‘prove-it’ type of deal,” per Rapoport, because his market is strong with the Raiders and Bills lurking.

“If you want to talk about what kind of contract he would generate, Eric Decker was the top receiver on the market during free agency,” Rapoport said. “Don’t be surprised if DeSean Jackson commands more than that. He is coming off possibly the best year of his career, and was set to make $10.5 million with the Eagles.”

Decker of course got a five year, $36.25 million deal from the Jets.
