“I don’t feel no one can stop me. You can get Darrelle Revis, Richard Sherman — whoever you want to get.” – DeSean Jackson
He led the NFL with 13 catches for 40 yards or more — five more than any other wideout.
He also averaged an NFL-best 20.88 yards per catch — nearly three yards more than the next receiver, Arizona’s Michael Floyd.
There’s more: Since entering the NFL as a second-round pick in 2008 with Philadelphia, Jackson has averaged an NFL-best 17.68 yards per catch. Also during this time, Jackson has 48 catches for 40 yards or more — 11 more than anyone else.
So it’s no wonder Jackson feels confident. It’s also no surprise that a receiver would like more passes after catching 56 a year ago, his first season in Washington.
“I always love to do more,” Jackson said. “Whatever opportunity I get to make a play I’ll make the most of my skills. To score touchdowns, to have energy, to light my team up, to get everyone riled up, to continue to go on the field and play at a high level. I just try to set the tempo, playing at a high level and everyone else can follow.”
