Jackson was released by the Eagles on Friday after NJ.com reported that the wide receiver has ties to Los Angeles gang members. Jackson’s first visit was scheduled with the Redskins, and he never left Washington. The Oakland Raiders and San Francisco 49ers also showed interest in the speedy receiver.
Jackson’s agency, EAG, confirmed Schefter’s report.

The New England Patriots reportedly inquired about Jackson before he was released. They had no reported interest in Jackson on the open market.
