The Washington Redskins and wide receiver DeSean Jackson agreed to a three-year deal Tuesday night, reports ESPN.com's Adam Schefter.

Financial terms were not disclosed.

Jackson was released last week after six seasons with the Philadelphia Eagles, despite setting career highs in 2013 in receptions and receiving yards.

The Eagles had reportedly been attempting to trade Jackson for the better part of the offseason, but were not able to find any suitors.

Things came to a head when NJ.com reported on March 28 that the Eagles were concerned that Jackson might have gang affiliations. The website also reported that the team had issues with Jackson because of a "bad attitude, an inconsistent work ethic, missed meetings and a lack of chemistry with head coach Chip Kelly."

Jackson denied being in any gang or associating with gang members, saying in a statement, "I am not a gang member and to speculate and assume that I am involved in such activity off the field is reckless and irresponsible. I work very hard on and off the field and I am a good person with good values."
