Bills “looking” at Jackson

Just days after the Philadelphia Eagles released WR DeSean Jackson on the same day that it was reported that he had ties to gang activities, which Jackson later denied, teams came a calling and the Buffalo Bills were one of them.  Other teams that have shown interest in the veteran receiver are the Oakland Raiders and the Washington Redskins.

The Bills are interested because he is one of the top receivers in the NFL but would the franchise be willing to put up with his off-field antics?  The fact that Jackson is used to the quick pace offense that the Bills are now turning to is  a huge plus.  On the negative side, is there a quarterback that will be able to deliver the ball to such a player?  Right now, no, there is not.  E.J. Manuel completed less than 60% of his passes in 2013 where as Oakland’s Matt Shaub completed 61.2 of his passes and Washington’s RGIII 60.1.  Add to that that Jackson is a “West Coast” guy and the odds are stacked against the Bills.  But it’s worth the look.
