DeSean Jackson signs contract with Redskins

WASHINGTON (WUSA9) -- It's official! After all the buzz, wide receiver DeSean Jackson signed a contract with the Washington Redskins Wednesday.

The terms of the deal were not disclosed, but ESPN's Adam Schefter reports that DeSean Jackson's three-year deal with the Redskins is worth $24 million, with $16 million of that payment guaranteed. Schefter says Jackson will make $8 million this season.


At a teleconference Tuesday, Jackson said the biggest thing about the move was finding a place he could be happy, and he thinks D.C. is the best place for that. Jackson said Robert Griffin III has done a great job embracing him and called him as soon as he became a free agent.

"I feel the people that really know me and know what type of players I am respect me and know I'm a team guy," Jackson said at his first teleconference as a Redskin. Jackson says DeAngelo Hall is like a brother to him, regardless of what people saw on the field.

The Redskins were one of several teams interested in Jackson, who was released Friday by the Philadelphia Eagles despite leading the team with 1,332 receiving and nine touchdown receptions in 2013.
