The Washington Redskins were reportedly closing in on a deal with wide receiver DeSean Jackson on Monday night, but it appears another team isn't ready to wave the white flag just yet.
The Cleveland Browns have already made a few splashes in free agency thus far, but they may look to make their biggest one yet by signing Jackson:
Per sources: DeSean Jackson has 2 teams making offers. I'm told Cleveland Browns are 1 and they are going hard with offer. #Browns— Dianna Marie Russini (@NBCdianna) April 1, 2014
Redskins source: "If DeSean Jackson gets on the plane...its going to be hard to sign him. He's at the Park now. They can't let him leave"— Dianna Marie Russini (@NBCdianna) April 1, 2014
Per source: San Francisco has now thrown their hat in the ring for DeSean Jackson. #Redskins #49ers— Dianna Marie Russini (@NBCdianna) April 1, 2014
Jackson is wrapping up a 2-day visit with the Redskins, who will probably up their offer once they learn the Browns are pushing hard for him.
As of now, the Browns have more cap space to offer Jackson a deal that would pay him in the $8-10 million range he's reportedly demanding.
