DeSean Jackson drawing interest from 'people in the Jets organization'

Ever since rumors first surfaced that the Philadelphia Eagles were considering trading or releasing wide receiver DeSean Jackson, the New York Jets were mentioned as a team that could be interested.

At the league meetings earlier this week in Orlando, Jets owner Woody Johnson said that the team had internal discussions about adding Jackson to the roster, and it appears that the interest is still there now that the speedy wideout is available.

According to the New York Daily News, "people in the Jets organization" are interested in Jackson, but there is no word on whether Johnson or general manager John Idzik are among the men interested.

Jackson would come with baggage, which is one of the reasons the team moved on from veteran Santonio Holmes. On Friday an NJ.com report detailed Jackson's connection to two men who have been involved in gang-related incidents.

A number of teams have already reached out to Jackson's agent, and you have to wonder if the Jets are among that number.

With the recent signing of former Eagles quarterback Michael Vick, it may make sense for the Jets to bring in one of the signal-caller's good friends, with whom Vick already has a solid on-field relationship.
