After WR DeSean Jackson's release from the Philadelphia Eagles, he's already receiving interest from teams salivating over his speed and playmaking ability. What are some of the likely destinations for Jackson? Is he going to reunite with his old teammate Michael Vick at the Jets or his old coach Andy Reid with the Chiefs? There are some options that include prominent members of the Cal football family or the Bay Area teams.
Panthers: Coach Ron Rivera said the team would be interested, but then the Charlotte Observer quickly shot that down with a report citing team sources that the Panthers would not want Jackson. But there is an extreme need for receivers in Carolina, and any team with Jerricho Cotchery and Tiquan Underwood as its top two threats (poor, poor Cam Newton) can't ignore someone like Jackson.
Raiders: This would be such an old-school Raiders move, signing a lightning fast vertical threat cast off by another team. And c'mon, we know the Raiders still have a ton of money. Oakland has signed a lot of guys but haven't made many moves that will impact the team's long-term rebuilding. Jackson would be a good piece for now and the future.
Seahawks and 49ers: Let's just lump them both in together since the NFC West rivals' battle has extended to the offseason. Seattle needs receivers in a bad way, and the 49ers would be scary with a deep threat like Jackson on the outside. Let's face it, if Jackson wanted to sign a one-year deal with anyone and hit the market again next year, doing so with either of these Super Bowl contenders and their fantastic young quarterbacks would be a wise decision. And grabbing a player of Jackson's caliber might vault one of the NFC West powers ahead of the other.
