DeSean Jackson Wants To Sign With Two Teams
DeSean Jackson isn’t retired yet – and has two teams at the top of his radar.
On the I AM ATHLETE podcast, the 35-year-old responded, “hello no” when former Cincinnati Bengals Pacman Jones asked him if he was hanging up the cleats.
“I’m a free agent,” Jackson said.

Moreover, he, later on, added that the Baltimore Ravens would be a good fit for him as well.
In Jackson’s 14-season NFL career, he has spent most of his time with the Eagles.
He was selected in the second round by the Eagles with the 49th pick in 2008.
In total, Jackson has more than 11,000 yards receiving with 463 touchdowns throughout his career.
Most interestingly, Jackson with the two combined teams averaged the most receiving yards per reception in his career with 22.7.
The Rams waived Jackson after failing to find a trade partner last year.
That came after the team signed Odell Beckham Jr., who helped them win a Super Bowl.
Beckham Jr. is also a free agent – but is rehabbing a torn ACL injury he suffered in the championship.
According to reports, Beckham Jr. hopes that he will be ready to play in November.
Meanwhile, Jackson seems open to playing for anyone – even the Rams again.
“It didn’t [end well with the Rams], but you know s—, I’m free and ready to go,” Jackson said.
“Whoever calls and knock down on that door, I’m pulling up.”
A potential Jackson signing during the season could come down to a desperate team with a need.
For example, if a wide receiver gets hurt and is forced to miss an extended period of time, a playoff or Super Bowl-contending team could give Jackson a call.
