NFL ROUNDUP: D-Jax proving popular

Wide receiver DeSean Jackson will meet with the Washington Redskins on Monday, his first visit since being released by the Philadelphia Eagles.

Jackson reportedly got a head start gathering intel on the Redskins by meeting with q u a r t e rb a ck Ro b e r t Griffin III in Los Angeles over the weekend.

ESPN.com also reported that Jackson is deep in negotiations with two teams previously not mentioned as having interest, but Pro-FootballTalk.com refuted the report.

Jackson posted a tweet Monday morning with a link to an Instagram photo that appears to show Jackson on an airplane.

Washington is among several teams, including the Oakland Raiders, New York Jets, Buffalo Bills and Carolina Panthers, with some level of interest in the 27-year-old Jackson, who was released on Friday.

 

WR Britt joins Rams

Free agent wide receiver Kenny Britt and the St. Louis Rams agreed to a one-year, $1.4 million contract, including $550,000 guaranteed, ESPN.com reported Monday.

The maximum value of the deal is $2.9 million with incentives, a source told ESPN.com.

Britt and Rams head coach Jeff Fisher will reunite in St. Louis. Fisher was the head coach of the Tennessee Titans when they selected Britt in the first round of the 2009 NFL draft. Fisher coached Britt for two years.

Last season, the Titans largely phased Britt out of their offense. He had 11 catches for 96 yards and no touchdowns in 2013 but caught 16 scoring passes in the previous three seasons combined.

 

Redskins ink S Clark

 

Safety Ryan Clark has agreed to a one-year deal with the Washington Redskins, according to multiple reports.

The long-time Pittsburgh Steeler visited the Seattle Seahawks last week and received interest from multiple teams on the free agent market before landing in Washington. The 34-year-old has played in one Pro Bowl over his 12-year career, and started all 16 games in 2013.

Clark has spent the past eight seasons with the Steelers, and has 827 career tackles, 15 interceptions, five forced fumbles and 3.5 sacks. He is considered a smart player who calls out the plays and is a big hitter.
