Report: Redskins Will "Do Almost Whatever It Takes" To Sign WR Vincent Jackson | Sports & Recreation
Just a few days after the Washington Redskins made a bold trade to acquire the 2nd overall pick in the NFL Draft, presumably to take Baylor Quarterback Robert Griffin III, the team might be poised to make yet another splash.
According to Kevin Acee, reporter for U-T San Diego, the Redskins and the Chicago Bears will both make major pushes to sign Chargers free-agent Wide Receiver Vincent Jackson, with Washington expected to be the frontrunner for Jackson’s services.
“The Chargers’ seeming resignation that Jackson will go somewhere else could be due in part to their having long been aware of a team – thought to be the Redskins – that will do almost whatever it takes to get Jackson,” Acee wrote Sunday night.
Acee noted that Dan Snyder could be poised to woo the 6’5” Wideout with a big money offer.
“The Chargers could go as high as $11 million a year, but if the Redskins offer more than $12 million, which has been floated by knowledgeable people, Jackson will probably be shopping for real estate in Virginia,” Acee reported.
Jackson has had more than 1,000 yards receiving and 7 or more touchdowns in three of the past four seasons.
