Bills are doing their 'due diligence' on DeSean Jackson, according to report

John Geliebter-USA TODAY Sports

Add Buffalo to the mix of suitors for the former Eagles pass catcher.

DeSean Jackson may be getting passed on by the likes of the Jets and Chiefs, but he is rounding up suitors to go along with the Redskins. The Buffalo Bills are seriously interested in Jackson and are researching the three-time Pro Bowl wide receiver, according to Tim Graham of the Buffalo News. Jackson is already scheduled to meet with the Redskins on Monday and the Raiders are also believed to be interested in him as well.

While on the surface (or in Madden), the pair of Stevie Johnson and Robert Woods would be an appealing duo as starting wide receivers, Jackson would be an upgrade over either. Johnson carries a high salary and is coming off a rough year, so signing Jackson could spell his demise in Western New York. The Bills want to spread the ball around and Jackson would certainly take the top off opposing defenses.

Doug Marrone would make an interesting coach for Jackson, who has reportedly had issues dealing with coaches and failed to appear at his exit interview at the end of last season. Marrone dealt with a similar locker room situation with Mike William at Syracuse. Marrone suspended Williams for violating team rules and the wide receiver ended up quitting the team.

Perhaps after dealing with Williams, Marrone has more perspective on how to handle a player like Jackson, who seems like a nice guy with maturity issues. Buffalo could use some good news after rumors of a possible relocation to go along with Jim Kelly's health and Ralph Wilson Jr.'s death. Jackson would be a surge of excitement for the fanbase and they have roughly twice as much cap room as the Redskins.
