Los Angeles Rams, WR DeSean Jackson agree to one-year deal
The Los Angeles Rams have signed their first outside free agent of the offseason, and it’s a familiar face for coach Sean McVay.
The team announced Sunday night it had agreed to terms with wide receiver DeSean Jackson on a one-year deal. Details of the contract were not available.
Jackson, 34, is a Long Beach, California, native, so this is a homecoming for the veteran. He played at Cal, and the Eagles drafted him in the second round in 2008.
Jackson and McVay were both in Washington together from 2014-2016. In 2019, Jackson said he wanted a chance to play for McVay again, and now he’ll get that opportunity.
