Before DeSean Jackson signed with the Redskins late Tuesday night, Dale Jr. and Kevin Durant among many others got in his virtual ear on Twitter and encouraged him to come to Washington. Newly signed Redskins safety Ryan Clark threatened to use force, if necessary, to prevent Jackson from making other visits. (No word yet on a fine from the league office.)
Headed to Redskins Park to tackle D Jax like I used to tackle before all of the new rules. Not letting him up until he signs!

Robert Griffin III fought to land Jackson, too.

After Jackson confirmed the news of his signing with an Instagram shot of the story on SportsCenter, the reactions flooded in.
The NFC East just got real. #HTTR all day
