DeSean Jackson Rumor: Jets Unlikely to Sign Receiver?

Evan Habeeb-US PRESSWIRE

Mark Osborne reports the Jets are unlikely to sign DeSean Jackson.

But one team source, speaking on the condition of anonymity, told Metro New York that Jackson "is a long shot to land here." While the three-time Pro Bowler would add an instant playmaker to their wide receiver corps, Jackson may not be seen as a good fit with the team. "He isn’t a ‘John Idzik guy’ – not what fits here right now" the source said, referring to the Jets’ general manager who has been restrained this offseason.

I am not saying the Jets need to sign Jackson at any cost. I will, however, say the Jets would be doing themselves a disservice if they were not right in the middle of the hunt to sign Jackson.

If they do that, they will have a pair of top twenty receivers in their starting lineup and a duo that perfectly complements each other at that. You have the blazing Jackson who is a threat to score on every play and Eric Decker, the big target who is great in the red zone and can get deep if he has somebody who can draw a ton of attention. Heck, with the amount of cap space they have, I am disappointed the Jets didn't throw a conditional pick at the Eagles to get the receiver.

There is no telling whether this rumor is true. I hope it is not.
