The NFC East got a lot more interesting as former Philadelphia Eagles wide receiver DeSean Jackson stayed in the division and signed with the Washington Redskins.

The deal between the two parties is a three-year, $24 million contract that includes $16 million in guarantees.

He also bolsters an already solid receiving corps that includes Pierre Garcon, Santana Moss, Andre Roberts, and Jordan Reed. Robert Griffin III should be a very happy quarterback, and opposing secondaries should be very unhappy.

The Washington Redskins are quietly having a nice off-season as they nab yet another player from a divisional rival. Last month, they stole away the Dallas Cowboys’ best defensive player last season in Jason Hatcher.
