|DeSean got paid. The good news is that we wonít have to read and hear about how DeSean wants to get paid. The bad news is his high fantasy risk factor just went through the roof. Heck, high character players generally see a decline in production after getting their first big contract. Considering Jacksonís refusal to go over the middle last season as well as his alligator arms routine when forced to make a catch in traffic, getting his first big deal could put an even bigger damper on his production than his pouting, me first attitude did in 2011. The guy is extremely talented and might just be the best big play threat in the league next to Calvin Johnson but he has been a one trick pony for most of his career and there arenít many reasons to expect that to change in 2012. Another 1,000 yards and six or seven touchdowns seems likely but a repeat of his 4th ranked fantasy wide receiver performance in 2009 is a pipe dream. Somebody is going to buy the dream. Donít let it be you.

Tampa gets speed threat opposite Evans
|The #Bucs are expected to sign #Redskins WR DeSean Jackson, source said. A deal theyíve expected, but a big one. (Ian Rapoport on Twitter)|
FF Today's Take: This move has been expected and it appears it will happen unless something unforeseen happens. The Bucs are in need of a speed threat opposite Mike Evans and Jackson certainly fits. He's averaged 18.8 ypc over the last three years.

LA has about $40 M in cap space
|The Rams enter the offseason with about $40 million in cap space and a desperate need -- once again -- to beef up at receiver. Alshon Jeffery is the major prize in free agency, and DeSean Jackson seems like a natural fit now that McVay, his former offensive coordinator with the Redskins, is with the Rams. (ESPN)|
FF Today's Take: With a clear need for a top receiver and so much cap space, the Rams will almost certainly land a top free-agent receiver, especially considering they don't have a first-round pick. Jackson is supposedly interested in a return to Philadelphia and getting older, while Jeffery hasn't shown much durability, so getting either one may be a mixed blessing. Kenny Britt is coming off his first 1,000-yard season, but LA would probably only want him back if he is agreeable to be a No. 2 receiver.
