Summary

DeSean Jackson has a lot to prove entering his ninth season coming off his worst season as a pro. The good news is that Jackson hasn't lost his game-breaking deep speed as evidenced by his 17.6 yards per reception. The bad news is Jackson missed five games and set career lows for targets (49), receptions (30) and yards (528). Unlike teammate Pierre Garcon, Jackson has been a true difference maker for most of his career when healthy. Even if Jackson's role downshifts a bit entering his latter years in the league, he still adds a much needed dimension to the Washington offense. Without Jackson's presence, the team is ill suited to keep defenses from stacking the box. With Jackson, Kirk Cousins was more efficient and the team was able to field a less predictable, more balanced attack. (May 19)

Redskins | DeSean Jackson not at workouts (Wed May 25, 03:26 PM) - Washington Redskins WR DeSean Jackson has not participated in voluntary workouts this week, but he has visited the Redskins.

Our View: This doesn't sound like a big deal. There are some veterans who just decide to workout on their own as the voluntary portion of the offseason continues. Head coach Jay Gruden said Jackson knows what kind of shape he has to be in and does expect him to participate in other voluntary workouts.

Redskins | Jamison Crowder to play slot (Tue May 17, 08:57 PM) - Washington Redskins WR Jamison Crowder will serve as the Redskins' primary slot receiver in 2016, with WRs Pierre Garcon, DeSean Jackson and Ryan Grant also capable of playing in the slot.

Our View: Where is rookie first-round pick Josh Doctson going to fit in? Crowder make plays underneath, but he lacks the 'my ball' mentality and run-after-the-catch ability of the rookie from TCU. Garcon and Jackson will start on the outside, but we think Doctson will earn more snaps than Crowder in 2016. We'll be watching closely during camp to see how things shake out in Washington's WR corps.
