Andy Reid and the Kansas City Chiefs Pass on DeSean Jackson

Kirby Lee-USA TODAY Sports

It looks like DeSean Jackson won't be reunited with his former head coach in Kansas City.

Cross the Kansas City Chiefs off the list of the many teams rumored to be interested in free agent wide receiver DeSean Jacskon.

It's quite interesting to see that Jackson's former head coach Andy Reid didn't have strong interest in signing him. Jackson seemingly made a lot of sense for the Chiefs for a number of reasons. Kansas City could absolutely use help at receiver. It's no secret that Reid loves to pass the ball. Despite lacking a ton of cap space, KC still could have afforded him, as Arrowhead Pride explains. It's hard not to think Jackson would have mutual interest in reuniting with his former head coach. The bottom line here is that if the Chiefs really wanted Jackson, they probably would have ended up with him.

But clearly that wasn't the case. And it makes you wonder why Andy Reid, who knows Jackson better than any other potential suitor out there, would pass on his former player.
