The Washington Redskins and wide receiver DeSean Jackson appear to be moving closer to an agreement on a contract, sources told ESPN.

Jackson arrived in northern Virginia on Monday night and dined with members of the Redskins coaching staff, including coach Jay Gruden. He later went to a club with current Redskins cornerback DeAngelo Hall and wide receiver Pierre Garcon. Both players have publicly stated their desire for Jackson to join the Redskins, as has quarterback Robert Griffin III.

“Very exciting player. Determined to show he is the best and hungry to win. My kinda guy,” Griffin told ESPN’s Britt McHenry.

Jackson met with the Redskins at their facility Tuesday. His agent remained and started talking contract numbers with the team, a league source told ESPN NFL Insider Adam Schefter.
