Teams are lining up with varying levels of interest in former Philadelphia Eagles star wide receiver DeSean Jackson, who would be a No. 1 wide receiver on several of the teams that are looking at him (namely the Oakland Raiders and Kansas City Chiefs). This may or may not be the case for the Buffalo Bills, who currently have Stevie Johnson as their top wideout, but they have some interest in the 1,300-yard receiver.
The Buffalo News’s Tim Graham reports that “any” interest the Bills have in Jackson would be at “predetermined price”, which isn’t surprising. The Bills have interest in Jackson, but it’s clear that they aren’t going to spend much on him due to his potential character concerns. That’s a prudent policy to have, and I’m sure there are several other teams of the many interested in D-Jax that will follow the same policy.
Because of this, I doubt the Bills will sign Jackson, but it’s good to see them at least looking at a top wideout. They have decent receivers outside of Johnson, but they could use a better WR2 if they want to help out E.J. Manuel even more. A top playmaking TE is likely at the top of the Bills wishlist, but they could use playmakers across the board in an effort to juice up their passing attack. Jackson would help elevate the Bills offense by adding that kind of a playmaking dimension, but nobody should be surprised that they are only interested in him at a set price that is likely a low one.
