Desean Jackson is the hot topic across the NFL and especially in Oakland as the star wide receiver who was released by the Eagles has became a cult hero around the Raider Nation over the weekend.
On Sirius XM’s NFL Radio legendary former Raiders head coach Tom Flores stopped by the program to discuss the late Ralph Wilson as well as answer some questions about the Oakland offseason.
After praising the moves of Reggie McKenzie and Dennis Allen so far as well as expressing his disappointment in the departure of Jared Veldheer, Flores naturally was asked about Desean Jackson and the Raiders interest in bringing him in.
The former Super Bowl winning head coach had an interesting perspective on Jackson, alluding to the fact that the Jackson development has been going around in league circles for awhile now and that he is confident that the Raiders front office has done their due diligence so far in terms of checking out his character and background. Flores also defended Jackson to an extent and said that he is a talent the Raiders “could use” that would be “a huge plus”
