DeSean Jackson Settling In With Redskins

Posted Jun 3, 2014

Wide receiver DeSean Jackson said he has been building chemistry with his new Redskins teammates as Organized Team Activities get into their second week.

When DeSean Jackson signed with the Redskins in early April, the team’s fans, players, coaches and front office personnel raved about what the dynamic wide receiver could bring to the offense.

And, as the team’s organized team activities (OTAs) continue into their second week, those possibilities are beginning to turn into something tangible for Jackson and the Redskins.

Jackson said he’s been utilizing OTA practice sessions and meetings to continue the process of building chemistry with his Redskins teammates – and particularly with quarterback Robert Griffin III – to ensure they are clicking on all cylinders when the regular season gets underway.

“Our chemistry right now is a work in process,” Jackson said. “The more we get out here and keep working and staying after practice and running routes and getting our timing down, I think sooner or later we’ll be in great shape.”

Redskins head coach Jay Gruden said he’s already talked about his expectations with Jackson, and thinks “he’s going to fit in here just fine.”

“The players have embraced him, the coaches have embraced him, and as long as he comes to practice with the right head on his shoulders willing to work – like he’s proven so far – there will never be an issue,” Gruden said.

The Redskins signed the 27-year-old Jackson April 2, adding an elite deep threat to an already-talented wide receiver corps that included Pierre Garçon, Leonard Hankerson, Aldrick Robinson, Santana Moss, fellow free-agent signee Andre Roberts, as well as second-year tight end Jordan Reed.

Jackson is also coming off a career year with the Philadelphia Eagles. In 2013, the three-time Pro Bowler established regular-season career highs in games started (16), receptions (82) and receiving yards (1,332) and matched his career high with nine receiving touchdowns.

Jackson said he’s looking forward to every game on the schedule, but playing against the Eagles two times a year will be even more added incentive to continue that production into 2014 and beyond.

“I’m ready to turn on versus anybody,” Jackson said Tuesday in an appearance on the NFL Network’s “NFL Total Access.” “But that game will be highlighted and I can’t wait to get it on versus whoever we play against. But, for sure, that game – you already know – I’m ready to turn it up.”

For his part, Griffin III said he can already sense a growing connection with his speedy receiver.

“I think it’s there,” Griffin III said. “We’ve been throwing a lot and he’s been here a majority of the offseason training. … He’s a guy that’s talented with a wide catch radius, so he can gel pretty much anywhere he goes, and we’re excited to have him.”
