DeSean Jackson posted another 1,000 yard season for the Redskins in 2016, his second in three years, and maintained his elite speed. The veteran receiver faces an interesting marketplace when free agency opens, as money is pouring into NFL team's coffers.
Jackson made $8 million per year during his last three seasons in Washington, but now, he's looking for a raise.
Spoke with several sources who believe DeSean Jackson will be looking for the $10-12-million-per-year range when things ramp up this week.— Jeremy Fowler (@JFowlerESPN) March 6, 2017
Spotrac.com projects Jackson with a market value of $7.6 million per season. That takes into account an assumed statistical slide as the wideout gets on the other side of 30.
In reality, there is no chance Jackson takes a pay cut this offseason, and likely he is prepared to get much more. Some recent momentum suggests the Redskins would rather have Jackson back opposed to fellow free agent receiver Pierre Garçon, though it seems unlikely Washington will go to the top of the market for either player.
