The list of those who think DeSean Jackson makes sense for the KC Chiefs

New, comments

Here's a list of those who are saying DeSean Jackson on the Chiefs makes sense.

We started collecting some tweets in our previous DeSean Jackson thread (that has 800+ comments!) but I figured I'd whittle the list down of the NFL folks who think the Chiefs should be interested in DeSean Jackson.

610 Sports Danny Parkins reported that the Chiefs were among the first teams to reach out and Yahoo! Sports Rand Getlin has the Chiefs, Raiders and Jets pursuing Jackson.

Here's our previous update with information on the Chiefs current cap space and whether they can afford Jackson, the official statement from Jackson where he thanks Andy Reid as well as Reid's recent comments on Jackson.

On cap space, the Chiefs currently have $4.5 million. They will need about $1.4 million to sign their draft picks.

Below is a list of those people who think DeSean Jackson would make sense for the Chiefs. We'll keep this updated for a while.

The Chiefs need an elite receiver, and Jackson excelled playing for Andy Reid in Philadelphia. But the Chiefs' inability to win a bidding war would make signing Jackson difficult. -- Adam Teicher - ESPN

Salary cap room is the major problem here, but Jackson would fit on the team perfectly. Andy Reid knows Jackson's strengths and weaknesses. Kansas City needs receivers after losing out on the Emmanuel Sanders sweepstakes.
