5 Teams That Must Sign WR DeSean Jackson Immediately

Wide receiver DeSean Jackson was released by the Philadelphia Eagles on Friday, which makes him the most sought after player this offseason. Jackson won’t be without a team for very long. At this point, it will come down to which organization wants him the most. Even though there are several teams that are interested in his service, here are five teams that must sign him immediately.

The loss of James Jones to free agency means the Green Bay Packers could use another talented wide out. Adding Jackson to the mix with Jordy Nelson and Randall Cobb could make Green Bay’s offense incredibly dangerous. Not to mention, giving Aaron Rodgers another weapon is never a bad idea. The Packers have the money right now, but they might be more focused on getting long-term deals done with Nelson and Cobb.

The Super Bowl champs are said to be one of many teams that are interested in Jackson. There’s no question the Seattle Seahawks could use some help at wide receiver, especially if they want to repeat this year. Jackson’s speed and athleticism would fit right in with Seattle’s offense, which is led by quarterback Russell Wilson.

The last thing the San Francisco 49ers want to see is the Seahawks bolstering their offense with another talented playmaker. More importantly, the 49ers desperately need to upgrade their wide receiver corps, and Jackson fits the bill. Gang ties aside, Jackson would be an unbelievable addition to a team that is just a few pieces away from being a legitimate contender for the fourth consecutive year.

The Chicago Bears could use a speedster on the outside to complement Brandon Marshall and Alshon Jeffery. Along with that, Jay Cutler needs another weapon in order to give the offense a fighting chance in the competitive NFC North division.

If I were a betting man, I would say the New York Jets is the most likely team to land Jackson. They desperately need a talented wide receiver and they don’t care what cost it takes to land one. Not to mention, pairing Jackson with quarterback Michael Vick might just be the best thing the Jets do in the offseason.
