DeSean Jackson addresses his NFL future, reveals teams he would play for

Three-time Pro Bowl wide receiver DeSean Jackson has underlined that he is not retired and revealed the names of teams he would be interested in joining. Jackson, 35, started the 2021 season with the Los Angeles Rams, before signing with the Las Vegas Raiders.

This past offseason, Jackson went unsigned. “I’m not officially retired, I’m ready to get back to it,” Jackson said on the I AM ATHLETE podcast, per Sports Illustrated. First, Jackson named the Philadelphia Eagles, with which he started his NFL career.

After leaving the Eagles in 2013, Jackson returned to Philadelphia for his second stint with the Eagles in 2019. Then, Jackson named the Green Bay Packers as he would love to have Aaron Rodgers as his quarterback. “Aaron Rodgers went to my college, so we got a little history together,” Jackson said.

“I didn't play with him, but he went to Cal, so we got a little bit of connection there”.

Jackson: It would be cool to play with Lamar Jackson

After naming the Eagles and Packers, Jackson said it would be cool to team up with Baltimore Ravens quarterback Jackson.

“I like Lamar Jackson's game right now,” he said. “Jackson and Jackson”. Also, Jackson was asked about the possibility of returning to the Rams. “I'm free and ready to go," Jackson said. “Whoever calls and knocks down on that door, I'm pulling up”.

Jackson started last season with the Rams, before he requested a trade. After Jackson requested a trade, the Rams granted him his wish and sent him to the Raiders. Jackson was unhappy with his role in the Rams offense and that's why he wanted out.

In the end, it didn't really turn out to be a good decision for Jackson. The Rams went on to win the Super Bowl, while the Raiders suffered a loss in the wild card round.
