DeSean Jackson rumors: D.C. reporter says 49ers have "thrown their hat in the ring"

Rich Schultz

The San Francisco 49ers have once again been connected to DeSean Jackson. He is in Washington negotiating a potential contract, and my guess is this is an agent ploy in that process.

Oh hell.

Or, if this news makes you happy, how about this:

It's April 1, so I'm always inclined to take things with a grain of salt, but a Washington, D.C. report is suggesting the San Francisco 49ers have "thrown their hat in the ring" with free agent wide receiver DeSean Jackson.

In reality, I am would bet most of money that this is a case of DeSean Jackson's agent trying to build leverage during his negotiations with Washington. Jackson's first free agent visit was with Washington, and all reports indicate he is still talking with them. If he leaves Washington without a contract, odds are good he signs elsewhere. I just still don't see it happening in San Francisco.

For now, we'll keep an eye on the Washington stuff. I think Snyder & Co. will eventually close the deal on this, but for now it remains at least a little interesting. Just don't get your hopes up too high if you are hoping the 49ers sign Jackson.

Fooch's Update: And we have more!

That's most certainly the pre-planned bailout call you have during a first date.

What does that even mean?
