Report: Redskins sign DeSean Jackson to 3-year deal

WASHINGTON (WUSA9/USA TODAY) -- The Washington Redskins have reached an agreement with wide receiver DeSean Jackson on a three-year contract, sources tell ESPN.

ESPN's Adam Schefter says that the finishing touches are being put on a deal between the Redskins and Jackson.

According to ESPN, DeSean Jackson had dinner Monday night with members of the Redskins coaching staff, including coach Jay Gruden.

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.

ESPN reports that nine teams reached out to Jackson's agent, Joel Segal, after the three-time Pro Bowl receiver's release.

Jackson's release came after a report from which alleged Jackson had associations with Los Angeles-based gang members. The Los Angeles Police Department later stated Jackson had not been linked to any gang activity.
