Raiders Land DeSean Jackson

DeSean Jackson is going to the Raiders, the receiver tells USA Today’s Josina Anderson via text. A deep threat that’ll help alleviate the absence of Henry Ruggs.

He’s not the answer, no, however he’ll help.

So in summary, DeSean Jackson is leaving the 7-1 Rams to sign with a 5-3 Raiders team. Both teams are winning in their own respects, although it’s hard to argue that Jackson’s departure to Vegas was about winning — probably a move to secure a more prominent role in the offense.

If he wanted that he shouldn’t have been 34-years-old.

Regardless of his questionable departure, Jackson arrives to Vegas with eight receptions on the year for 221 yards. A season-long catch of 75 yards, which is what Derek Carr and the Raiders are looking for — a vertical threat. He can still do that. Welcome to Vegas, DeSean Jackson.
