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 ...
