Jackson was released by the Eagles last week.
Former Philadelphia Eagles wide receiver DeSean Jackson is reportedly “deep in negotiations” with two teams that nobody has mentioned previously.
A source close to the situation has told ESPN NFL Insider Ed Werder that the 27-year-old is still keeping his options open with numerous teams interested, although it is understood that he visited the Washington Redskins on Monday.
However, those discussions are likely to overlap into Tuesday as Washington push to recruit the recently released receiver. although they will face stiff competition according to the latest reports.
“There have been negotiations in the past 24 hours. Two teams nobody has mentioned as being interested are deep in negotiations. They are engaged with multiple clubs,” the source told Werder, as reported by ESPN.
Further, a head coach of a team is said to have told the reporter that they are currently doing their research to ensure it is the right move, describing it as a “high risk, potentially high reward”.
Jackson posted a tweet on Monday morning which appeared to show him on a plane, with the facts generally suggesting that he was Washington bound.
Nevertheless, after being released by the Eagles last week, Jackson is keen to secure his future in the coming days and return to work with his new team.
Philadelphia cited problems with “work ethic and attitude” as the reasoning behind their decision to release Jackson, although there were additional media reports which suggested that he had links with gangs which ultimately ensured that their relationship was ended.
At least nine teams are said to have reached out to Jackson’s agent over the past week and while he thanked the Eagles for giving him the chance to establish himself as one of the franchise’s most explosive players, he will undoubtedly be disappointed with how things have developed.
The Eagles released Jackson just two years into a five-year extension, and while he was due to make $10.5m in 2014 and was owed $30.5m over the remainder of his contract, none of that money was guaranteed.
