DeSean Jackson joins Redskins

DeSean Jackson's time on the unemployment line ended rather quickly as the star wide receiver has signed a 3-year deal with the Redskins after being unceremoniously released by the Eagles days earlier. It could be a risky move given Jackson's reported off-field issues, not to mention that the Redskins are being guided this season by a first-year NFL coach in Jay Gruden. Will this add up to disaster or will it be one of the shrewdest moves off the offseason?

DeSean Jackson to Redskins

With a simple tweet, the Philadelphia Eagles finally put an end to all of the conjecture surrounding DeSean Jackson's future in Philly, announcing his release from the team. NFL Insider Adam Schefter says that at least four teams contacted Jackson's agent within 30 minutes of the news of the wide receiver's release, so don't expect him to be on the sidelines long. Would you want Jackson on your team despite reports that his off-field activities played into the Eagles' decision to release him?

Sanchez good fit for Eagles?

It's not an official trade, but it's close to one. Just days after the New York Jets signed former Philadelphia Eagles quarterback Michael Vick, the Eagles have inked ex-Jets QB Mark Sanchez, according to a source. Sanchez's New York career, of course, did not end as it began, with the onetime playoff quarterback relegated to being a punch line. But in Philly the pressure is low -- Nick Foles is the clear-cut No. 1 -- and Chip Kelly has a way with offenses ...

Saints, Niners prevail in NFC

The wild-card round of the 2013-14 NFL playoffs nearly belonged to all the road teams. In the AFC, the Chargers beat the host Bengals, while a furious rally was all that saved the home-standing Colts versus the Chiefs. In the NFC, there were no exceptions. Thanks to last-second field goals in both games, the Saints on Saturday tipped the Eagles, and the 49ers on Sunday braved bitter-cold conditions to take out the Packers. Does either NFC team have another road win in it?

Vick expects to start in 2014

Michael Vick's 2013 season featured yet another injury, this time a hamstring, causing him to lose his starting quarterback job with the Eagles to Nick Foles. Vick hasn't played a full season since 2009, but he doesn't feel that will hurt him as he searches for a starting job this offseason. Is the 33-year-old worth the risk? How much does he have left in the tank?
