DeSean Jackson almost signed a deal with the 49ers this off-season

DeSean Jackson signed a big deal earlier this off-season, but he almost signed with the Niners. Jackson told the reporters today he was in limbo between the 49ers and Redskins.

“I did have a couple talks. Coach Harbaugh and myself, we played against each other back at Cal when he was at Stanford,” Jackson explained, via the 49ers’ official website. “I respect him. It was a tough call, but I chose to come here instead.

“At the end of the day, they made it right for me to stay here in Washington, and even though I’m born and raised in California and would love to be there, love to play there, it was just a better fit and a better situation for me to be where I’m at now.”
