Five angles on Jackson and the Redskins | Comcast SportsNet Washington
Jackson won’t be cheap but closer to $8 million per year than to $10 million—There was a report out there that Jackson is looking for a contract worth $9-$10 million per year. That seems to be a bit high considering that the top free agent wide receiver so far, Eric Decker, got a deal worth an average of $7.25 million from the Jets. Jackson could be more than Decker but he won’t get $2 million per year more.

Boz ranks Shanahan near bottom for ‘redeeming personal virtues’
I will say that, by the end, I’d have ranked Shanny very close to the bottom for redeeming personal virtues among all the pro coaches in all the major sports in D.C. that I’ve encountered. I can’t remember anybody who went out so badly, so vindictively. But he could COACH — X’s and O’s. And evaluate players (at some positions, not others). That’s all he wanted to be. Those abilities, and RGIII’s great season, were central to the NFL East title in ’12. But in dealing with people? He was out of the past — My Way Mike. That only works when you win — a lot. Most of the tough-guy NFL coaches are, in part, tough for public consumption but can still deal with players constructively in their office. Jay Gruden’s biggest advantage is that he follows Shanahan.

Update: DeSean Jackson and Washington Redskins - ESPN
There is not yet a deal, according to multiple sources. But to say it doesn't look promising for the Redskins would be wrong. Very wrong. However, I've seen them close to making other big acquisitions over the years only to lose out at the last minute (Jay Cutler, Eddie Royal). So until a contract is signed, nothing is done. Various reports out of Philadelphia have called it a done deal (97.5's Tim McManus and ABC-6's Jeff Skversky). Skversky caught up with Jackson at Dulles airport. Perhaps that's what Jackson is telling people. Royal told people the same thing a couple of years ago. So did Cutler. Hence the caution.
