Could Redskins make play for Jackson?

By Bill Williamson

Washington coach Mike Shanahan would not discount the idea of his team pursuing San Diego holdout Pro Bowl receiver Vincent Jackson. Shanahan didn’t say he'd go after Jackson, but he didn’t deny it, either. The Redskins did consider Jackson earlier in the summer.

Jackson could return for the fifth game to a new team if it acquires him between Friday and Wednesday. ESPN’s Adam Schefter reports that it will take a lot of money and a “premium” draft pick to make Jackson trade possible. It makes sense. That’s been the case all along.
