New England Patriots Reportedly Interested In Free Agent DeSean Jackson

According to Master Tesfatsion of the Washington Post, the New England Patriots, Philadelphia Eagles, Tampa Bay Buccaneers and Dallas Cowboys have all showed interest in free agent wide receiver DeSean Jackson, who is likely moving on from the Washington Redskins .

Jackson, 32, finished last season with 56 catches for 1,006 yards and four touchdowns. In his nine NFL seasons he’s had five 1,000-yard seasons.

It’s clear why the Patriots would like to add a receiver given they have only three definitive players returning next year in Julian Edelman, Chris Hogan and Malcolm Mitchell. They also will likely have the return of Danny Amendola on a reduced salary.

The team has also been connected to the New Orleans Saints in a potential deal that would flip a 1st round draft pick for receiver Brandin Cooks according to a report that came out this past weekend. Another name that has been connected to the Patriots to boost the receiver core is New York Jets free agent Brandon Marshall who could accept taking lesser money for the chance of winning a Super Bowl.

Cooks seems to be the top target for Bill Belichick right now as it has been reported not too long ago that the Patriots are still interested in trading for Cooks with Kristian Garic, the sports director for WWLAM and the Saints’ sideline reporter reporting that the Patriots are still trying to get Brandin Cooks but their 1st round 32nd pick will not cut it for the Saints.

In terms of DeSean Jackson who this story started off with there is an issue with his age of 32 given the Patriots are already at an average age of 28 in their receiving core. If he is willing to come to New England on a one year deal then there is something to talk about, anything longer than that would make no sense for the Patriots.

State of Trifecta Network

The last two months have been a whirlwind. There are no words that can truly describe what has happened to us as a website.

We went from a site that was getting an average of 2-3k viewers a week to getting that in a single day on average since the start of June. Since the start of June, we have been a credentialed member of the media to several of the teams in the area and look to increase that in the Fall.

Ultimately everything we create is meant to be read/consumed by our readers, you.  Often it is tough to get a vibe on what is or isn’t working in terms of content. That is why we would greatly appreciate if you guys give your thoughts in the comment section of this post to help us curate better content.

One thing we are looking forward to in the Fall is more reader/writer interactions. We will start doing Q and A’s related to all the Boston sports teams as well as a live Fantasy Football podcast where we will take your lineup questions.

The launch of the Fantasy podcast has yet to be decided, but expect it ahead of week 1 of the NFL season with a draft podcast. We will also be launching a Fantasy Football league to run alongside it if interested in joining fill out the contact form below with your information.

Trifecta Network is a growing platform, we will always be free and made for our readers. We appreciate your readership and want to build the best product we can to ensure the best Boston sports experience in the city.

You may have noticed more video content on the site, it is an area we are looking to improve, but not focus solely on. Many sports sites are going away from traditional writing, a move that I believe is a mistake.

If you ever have any thoughts or comments please feel free to reach out to us.
