DeSean Jackson looks to be signing one heck of a deal.
According to a report from Forbes.com, Jackson will receive $16 million guaranteed once he signs his contract with the Washington Redskins. The total compensation of the deal is a reported $24 million.
That's quite the contract after the character issues that arose in the past week — whether it was a work ethic issue with the Eagles or the allged gang ties reported in a story by NJ.com.
Jackson agreed to terms with the Redskins late Tuesday night, tweeting his excitement from the decision.
"ITS GOIN DOWN !!" Jackson wrote on his official Twitter account. "BURGUNDY & GOLD."
Jackson had a career season in 2013 with the Eagles, catching 82 passes for 1,332 yards and nine touchdowns.
