New Washington Redskins receiver DeSean Jackson says Thunder forward Kevin Durant and rapper Wale played a part in his recruiting process to Washington.
Jackson was released by the Philadelphia Eagles earlier this week. But when Jackson was considering his next stop, Durant didn't just tweet his feelings -- he stayed in Jackson's ear.
"Another influence was my boy Durant," Jackson told ESPN 980's Inside the Locker Room on Wednesday. "Kevin Durant been calling me, he been calling and saying man you know how I’d go crazy for you to be in D.C."
