DeAngelo Hall, Wale And Pierre Garcon Lead Recruiting Of DeSean Jackson

After he re-signed with the Washington Redskins in February, DeAngelo Hall vowed to recruit free agents for the Redskins.

The cornerback did not mention his secret Wale-pon weapon: international rap star Wale,  who posted the following Instgram photo of prospective free agent DeSean Jackson hanging out with a Redskins contingent at Eden nightclub in Northwest Washington, D.C., Monday night.

News of Jackson visiting the Redskins first hit the internet on Tuesday morning, and celebrity pleas emerged on Twitter.

Ryan Clark had not officially signed with Washington yet, but he was ready to lower a shoulder if it would help.

Robert Griffin III was willing to throw down for the wide receiver, too.

Jackson tweeted the news shortly after midnight:

And there was much rejoicing:

Lastly, here are some Madden renditions of Jackson in burgundy and gold from the Twitter account of R.D. Smith (@rd_421).
