ASHBURN, Va. (WRIC) — The Washington Redskins are losing another key wide receiver to an NFC rival. Wide receiver Desean Jackson is signing with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, as reported by ESPN’s Adam Schefter.
His deal reportedly is three years and worth $35 million, $20 million guarenteed. Chris Baker also leaves the Redskins for the Bucs on a reported three year deal worth potentially $6.25 million a year.
In Jackson’s three years with Washington, he has caught 14 touchdowns and had two seasons with over 1,000 yards receiving.
Pierre Garcon is leaving the Redskins for the San Francisco 49ers. The loss of the two receivers for Washington is the first time in NFL history a team has let their two 1,000 yard receivers from the previous season go, according to Elias Sports Bureau.
