Redskins wide receiver DeSean Jackson: ‘No one can guard me’

Monday August 3rd, 2015

When asked what it was like to go up against teammate cornerback Chris Culliver during practice, Redskins wide receiver DeSean Jackson responded that he doesn't feel threatened by any opponent. 

“I don’t think no one can guard me,” Jackson told ESPN. “It’s how I feel about myself. I don’t feel no one can stop me. You can get Darrelle RevisRichard Sherman—whoever you want to get.”

Jackson will get his chance to go head-to-head with Revis when the Redskins face the New York Jets on Oct. 18. 

In his first season in Washington, Jackson led the league with 20.9 yards per catch and with 13 catches for 40 yards or more. However, his 56 catches didn't crack the league's top 50 for total receptions in 2014. 

“I always love to do more,” Jackson said. “Whatever opportunity I get to make a play I'll make the most of my skills. To score touchdowns, to have energy, to light my team up, to get everyone riled up, to continue to go on the field and play at a high level. I just try to set the tempo, playing at a high level and everyone else can follow.”

The Redskins began training camp on Thursday, and will play their first preseason game on Aug. 13 against the Cleveland Browns.
