WASHINGTON (AP) — The Washington Redskins made their biggest move yet of the offseason Tuesday night, adding three-time Pro Bowl receiver DeSean Jackson less than a week days after the dynamic playmaker was released by the rival Philadelphia Eagles.

Jackson’s publicist tweeted that Jackson was signing with the Redskins following two days of meeting with coaches and officials.

Jackson set career-highs with 82 catches for 1,332 yards last season for the NFC East champion Eagles, but Philadelphia tried to trade him and then cut him last week amid reports of off-the-field concerns.

Jackson issued a statement denying he was associated with street gangs.
