Desean Jackson spotted with Wale, Washington players during visit (Photo)


Desean Jackson is visiting in Washington over Monday and Tuesday with reports coming out that negotiations between the NFC East team and the former Philadelphia Eagle are going well. While initial reports that a deal had been reached were quickly nipped in the bud by Ed Werder of ESPN and Ian Rapoport of NFL.com, the social media world revealed that the Washington camp isn’t above doing a bit of personal recruiting while Jackson is in town.

Late night on Instagram rapper Wale posted a photo with Jackson as well as Pierre Garcon and DeAngelo Hall out on the town in the nation’s capital on Monday night. Showing that Jackson is having some fun with some old rivals out on the town with Washington’s most famous rapper.

Raider fans pulled hard on social media for Jackson with their #DJaxToOakland campaign and the Nation seems like they have set their hearts on landing a potential franchise wide receiver, but with Jackson having a productive day of meetings with Washington’s front office at the team facility as well as out on the town things aren’t looking good for the chances of Jackson landing in California. Raider Nation’s best hope is that the salary cap strapped favorites in the Desean Jackson Sweepstakes fail to find the money to close the deal, if that doesn’t happen it looks like the chance to torture Chip Kelly and play alongside Robert Griffin III may be too much to pass up for Jackson. As of late night Monday things don’t look good for Jackson’s potential return to California to play for his boyhood team in the Raiders

    Oh well. I’m over it :( there is still Sammy Watkins, or Mike Evens that they don’t have to pay 50 million to, who will probably produce just as well. Still hurts bad though. Washington over his home grown team #Raiders. Just ain’t right.

  • KloverJane

    This is more rumor deflection. Not one fact here. Macklemore hangs out with Russell Wilson. Big deal. He could be closing In on a deal for a pastrami on marble rye for all we know. Go run around Georgetown for a few hours, then off to DC for a 5 hour flight to Oakland. Redeye Raider Nation flight. See I can speculate too.

  • Chris Schroeder

    Yeah you’re right. He’s out in Washington for the night what’s he going to do sit in the motel room twiddling his thumbs. Of course they’re going to send all the players to take him out, probably get him a stripper too. Don’t mean shit right.

  • KloverJane

    Or get him all crunked up on Krystal lol. Maybe check out some neighborhood drive by haunts. Too soon?

  • Chris Schroeder

    Lol! Perfect

    There is no one else like us raider fans. When we hear DJax might be coming, it’s blow the roof off of twitter #DJaxtoOakland like crazy. The minute he signs with Washington it’s gonna be F that sorry gangbanging drug dealing thug loser. Lol!

  • ANGELO07

    I say let him have his time tonight decide tomorrow. right now we signed Carlos Rogers! Great addition! Hes is solid and could compete for a starting job. DJ Hayden still has to prove he is nfl ready. Could be another Fabian Washington. So Rogers regardless of age, lol lets not worry about that till hes about 37 for someone who pushes hard. Woodson proved it so did Jerry Rice! Hes a great addition to the
    RAIDER NATION!!

  • KloverJane

    Lol. They’re flashing signs right der boi! A W….oooooh.
    Let’s hope he doesn’t listen to what De Angelo “I get burned in the secondary” Hall tells him. Since he thinks Kiffin and him were fired for cause by AL in the overhead projector incident!

  • Mark Shafer

    I have my own hand sign for Raider Haters!!!
