DeSean Jackson has a unique skill set outside of the one that’s led him to average 17.2 yards per catch for his career.The playmaker has some intrinsic qualities that attracts celebrity attention like a magnet.
Wale was part of persuasion party that convinced him to sign with Washington. Dale Earnhard Jr. is on board. And Oscar-Winner Jamie Foxx felt compelled to congratulate the 27-year old receiver on Twitter via a quarterback persona he embodied in 1999.

Jackson appeared on “Redskins Nation” with Larry Michael Wednesday and sounded kind of like Beamen.
“As long as you got heart, it doesn’t matter how big you are,” Jackson said. “And I tell people. You can’t hit what you can’t catch, so just stay fast.”
