DeSean Jackson’s new home will be Tampa Bay, FL. He’s expected to sign with the Buccaneers later today (per Ian Rapoport and Adam Schefter). Jackson paired alongside Mike Evans gives Jameis Winston one of the top WR duos in the league.

Assuming Jackson really does leave as expected, that would mean the Redskins will likely lose their top two WRs in FA. Pierre Garcon is expected to sign with the 49ers later today. Both WRs are 30 years old.

While the Redskins are pretty well set at TE with Jordan Reed and re-signing Vernon Davis, their WR corps looks very different without Garcon and Jackson. Right now they’re left with Jamison Crowder, Josh Doctson, Ryan Grant, and Maurice Harris (to go along with a few other young players in Reggie Diggs, Matt Hazel, and Kendal Thompson).

At this point, it’s expected that Chris Baker will leave the Redskins, too.
