Wednesday links: Jackson signs with Redskins

The Seahawks, said at one point to at least be interested in DeSean Jackson, were from all other indications never in the running for the receiver, who Tuesday night instead signed with the Washington Redskins.

The 49ers were reportedly ready to make a run at Jackson if he had gotten away from the Redskins. That didn’t happen, though it does indicate the 49ers’ — like the Seahawks may be, as well — are still on the hunt for receivers. The Seahawks, though, will still face Jackson once this season, as Seattle will visit Washington in 2014 (dates of games yet to be set).
