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.

Would you want Jackson on your team despite reports that his off-field activities played into the Eagles' decision to release him?
