Washington's reported interest in wide receiver DeSean Jackson is apparently beyond the phase of executing due diligence. The free agent will be visiting Washington this week, perhaps as soon as Monday, according to multiple media reports.

Washington is considered to be a long shot to land the Pro Bowl receiver, who was cut by the Eagles yesterday. But they do have some advantages including a rising star at quarterback in Robert Griffin III and, perhaps more importantly, a schedule that will include two games per year against the Eagles. Jackson would certainly like the opportunity to show that his old team made a big mistake in getting rid of him.
