Jets Owner Wants DeSean Jackson

ORLANDO, Fla. (AP) — Eagles receiver DeSean Jackson is among several players the New York Jets have interest in, Jets owner Woody Johnson says.

Speaking at the NFL meetings Sunday, Johnson says “we’re looking at a number of players, including DeSean.” The receiver could be made available by Philadelphia because he has a $10.25 million contract for the 2014 season, a stiff price the Eagles might not be willing to pay. Jackson is signed through 2016.

New York desperately needs an impact deep receiver after releasing the disappointing Santonio Holmes. The Jets signed Eric Decker away from Denver, but Jackson is more of a field-stretching target and can return punts.

Jackson, 27, led the Eagles last season with 82 receptions for 1,332 yards and had nine touchdowns.
