Buffalo Bills All In with D- Jax but at Right Price


A couple of days ago, DeSean Jackson was released by the Philadelphia Eagles. Jackson being released was not a big surprise but being so late in the free agency and being released is.

The Buffalo Bills are reportedly interested in the newly released wide receiver but only at the right price.

Jackson has had some issues in the past and the Bills heading into this cautiously is a smart move. Personally, when I think of a big target receiver, DeSean Jackson does not come to mind. Jackson does have the number to be a factor as a wide receiver but when I think of a big receiver, I am looking for someone over 6’0 tall and able to make leaps and bounds. Jackson comes across as an Eric Decker or a Wes Welker type receiver more possession and not big play down the field. We don’t need another Robert Woods on this team we need someone that can climb the ladder and make the catches down the field over the corner-backs.

The Jets had reported that they are no longer interested in Jackson and the Raiders are performing a background check on him. Jackson’s first team visit is to the Redskins and that might be the end of it, for the Buffalo Bills and everyone else depending on what Mr. Snyder offers him. If enough, a budgeted team like the Bills with a predetermined price, might not even matter after the first visit.

I don’t like Jackson added to the Bills roster, but I still like Mike Evans as the big receiver if another one does not come about in free agency; Miles Austin, Kenny Britt, etc.

    What are you talking about? Jackson is the epitome of a deep threat. Do some homework, buddy.

    I don’t like the idea of Jackson coming to Buffalo, either ….he isn’t the type of WR the team needs or is looking for, even as talented as he is. I think Buffalo needs a WR who can be a possession type AS WELL AS a deep threat – they have one or the other, but no one who can do BOTH. I think drafting a WR and grooming him into the role makes more sense than paying this guy what he’s definitely going to be asking for. On another note, the background noise about him having gang ties doesn’t matter – the LAPD themselves have said that’s not the case. If I were Jackson, I’d take that response from LAPD and sue the Eagles with it. The rumors of his gang ties have certainly cost him money and reputation …and he should sue the people responsible – which seems to be the Eagles.

    Depends on the asking price. Happy the Bills are pursuing anyone who has talent worth the money; I read on Bleacher Report that the Bills stated their price and are in contact with Jackson so it looks like they see him as a worthy investment but if things fall through, so be it.

    He’s a legitimate deep threat and a big upgrade.

    I’m sorry for being such a big Doodoo-head McGrouchypants. I’ve been on
    my period for so long and nobody has come to visit my glory hole and I
    just need to feel loved.
