As of yesterday, the Cleveland Browns did not have any reported interest in WR DeSean Jackson. However, we noted that ESPN's Ed Werder had reported that two mystery teams were deep in negotiations with Jackson:
As of yesterday, the latest word was that the Washington Redskins were the team making a big push to sign Jackson. Just a few hours ago, though, a sports anchor from the Washington area tweeted that the Browns have not only made Jackson an offer, but that they are going hard with their offer.
Per sources: DeSean Jackson has 2 teams making offers. I'm told Cleveland Browns are 1 and they are going hard with offer. #Browns— Dianna Marie Russini (@NBCdianna) April 1, 2014
Following that tweet, the sports anchor indicated that the San Francisco 49ers contacted Jackson and want him to visit them. Shortly after that, ESPN's Adam Schefter confirmed the 49ers' interest:
Redskins and DeSean Jackson still haven’t discussed contract. Team to watch: SF. 49ers have "real but guarded" interest in DJax, per source— Adam Schefter (@AdamSchefter) April 1, 2014
Could the Browns be in the mix for Jackson after all? It'll be interesting to see if any other sources link Jackson to Cleveland. Lane Adkins of The OBR, who usually has all of the inside scoops, tweeted that he had not heard about anything, on or off the record, about a Browns-Jackson signing.
