Redskins WR DeSean Jackson makes it clear: 'I want to be here'

Redskins WR DeSean Jackson makes it clear: 'I want to be here'

After spending the last three seasons with the Redskins, wide receiver DeSean Jackson wants to stick around.

The nine-year veteran, who is set to become a free agent next month, spoke to Larry Michael on Redskins Nation on CSN and expressed his desire to re-sign with the Redskins.

“I want to be here,” said Jackson, who led the NFL with his average of 17.9 yards per reception in 2016.

Jackson played with the Eagles for six seasons before they released him and he signed with the Redskins. During the latter part of last season there was a lot of talk of Jackson wanting to return to Philly. But perhaps things have changed.

“My family, my house, I have everything here,” he said. “I don't want to be in a transaction, moving.”

“Now the ball is in my corner a little bit. I can sit back and say, 'Let's see what we can do. Two-year, three-year, four-year deal? Maybe a 10—ha!”

He said that he will choose the “best offer” when it does come down to time to decide. The best offer doesn’t necessarily mean the most money but now that Jackson has turned 30 this could be his last chance at a big payday. If he does offer the Redskins a hometown discount it is likely to be relatively small.

Sean Taylor is scaring Pro Bowl punters like Tress Way to this day

Sean Taylor is scaring Pro Bowl punters like Tress Way to this day

The Pro Bowl may not count for anything other than an accolade on a player's resume, but it has delivered some memorable moments over the years. 

Maybe the best Pro Bowl play ever was when Sean Taylor leveled former Bills punter Brian Moorman when the AFC tried to run a fake in the 2006 Pro Bowl. 

Tress Way is representing the Redskins in the 2020 Pro Bowl and still has that play in the back of his mind. 

When asked whether he'd try to pull off a fake punt of his own on Sunday, Way said yes but under specific conditions. 

Minkah Fitzpatrick and Jamal Adams are the starting safeties for the AFC, so while both are great players and Adams is a hard-hitter in his own right, none of them are Taylor. 

So if you see the NFC pull off a fake punt and Tress Way quickly gets rid of the ball, you'll know why.

Winning a truck is DeAngelo Hall's fondest 2011 Pro Bowl memory

Winning a truck is DeAngelo Hall's fondest 2011 Pro Bowl memory

In the midst of the Pro Bowl being underway former Redskins’ defensive back DeAngelo Hall took a trip down memory lane. 

During Good Morning Football this week, the 2011 Pro Bowl MVP DeAngelo Hall said his favorite memory from the Pro Bowl wasn't exactly anything that happened on the football field.

You would think he would mention his impressive performance which included six tackles, an interception and a fumble returned for a touchdown. 

But no. His highlight of the day was winning a truck for his MVP performance. 

“I told my buddies going into it I wanted to buy a truck so I said hey, if I win this MVP I don't need to buy a truck so I called the shot ladies and gentlemen I really did," he said. 

It must have been a really special prize because to this day, he said, he still owns the truck.
