DESEAN JACKSON arrived in Washington yesterday for a visit that was to continue today, amid buzz that the Redskins were ready to make a substantive offer to the Eagles' three-time Pro Bowl wideout. Intercepted at Dulles International Airport by Washington and Philadelphia TV stations, Jackson said he was seeking "a new beginning, new challenges. " Asked about the possibility of playing the Eagles twice a year, Jackson said he was "not too much worried about that. Just moving on in my life.

The Eagles signed offensive lineman Andrew Gardner to their 90-man roster on Monday. The 6-foot-6, 309-pound Gardner last played for the Texans. He played in six games in three seasons for Houston. His only other NFL game came as a rookie for the Dolphins in 2009. Gardner, 27, was drafted out of Georgia Tech by Miami in the sixth round. Gardner was released by the Dolphins before the 2010 season. He spent time with the Ravens, Vikings and Bengals before the Texans signed him in August 2011.

AS DeSEAN JACKSON visits the Redskins today, with a source close to Jackson saying the Raiders are next in line, I keep thinking about those 40 minutes. I'm talking about the time that elapsed Friday between the posting of NJ.com's story attempting to connect Jackson with the Crips and the Eagles' 25-word announcement releasing their three-time Pro Bowl wide receiver. There is no way Jeffrey Lurie, Howie Roseman and Chip Kelly conferred, made such a momentous decision, and crafted the announcement in 40 minutes.

THE LOS ANGELES Police Department has never accused DeSean Jackson of being a gang member. And the NFL star, who was unceremoniously dumped yesterday by the Eagles, swears he's never been one. But LA detectives were interested in the wide receiver's ties to reputed members of the Crips when they investigated separate gang-related homicides in 2011 and 2012. "It's kind of like 'Six Degrees of Kevin Bacon,' " LAPD Homicide Det. Chris Barling told the Daily News yesterday.

YOU THOUGHT Joe Banner was harsh? Chip Kelly makes Banner look like Mother Teresa. The Eagles sent a clear message when they cut DeSean Jackson yesterday: No matter how well you play, no matter how professionally you act, if we believe you are overpaid we will get rid of you. And we will do anything to protect our image in doing so. Just hours after a story published yesterday on nj.com that tenuously connected Jackson...

It's easy for Chip Kelly now, just as it was easy for Andy Reid in those early halcyon days when he was a young head coach with the unyielding belief that his way was the only way. Step out of line, the men come and take you away. That's a line from the Buffalo Springfield song "For What It's Worth," and it's the way every NFL coach would like to run his team, especially in the beginning, when they are establishing their desired culture. I'm quite sure it was not the song on DeSean Jackson's iPod when the Eagles called Friday to tell their star wide receiver he had been released.

WASHINGTON Former Eagles linebacker Garry Cobb announced Saturday that he intends to run for Congress, hoping to represent New Jersey's First House District. Cobb, now a WIP radio sports personality who has never run for office, has said for weeks he intended to run for the open seat centered on Camden County but had not made his decision official. He plans to make his announcement in Cherry Hill on Monday, the filing deadline. Cobb will run as a Republican and will face an uphill fight to win the seat vacated in February by Rep. Rob Andrews after 23 years.

MARK SANCHEZ has started every NFL game he ever appeared in, 62 of 62 since the New York Jets drafted him fifth overall in 2009. So when Sanchez stepped to a NovaCare podium yesterday, it was no surprise that many of the questions had to do with why he signed with a team that presumably has a starting quarterback in Nick Foles. "I feel like this team, this coach, the kind of firepower they have, there's just an exciting element to being here in Philadelphia," said Sanchez, who led the Jets to the AFC Championship Game his first two seasons, before he and the team hit hard times.

The Eagles released DeSean Jackson on Friday after growing concerns about the Pro Bowl wide receiver's off-field behavior and the effect it would have in the locker room. The team felt the issues surrounding Jackson made him virtually untradable, The Inquirer has learned. It ended Jackson's six years in Philadelphia after weeks of speculation that the 27-year-old would be traded despite a spectacular season last year under Chip Kelly. It comes during an offseason that began with an odd burglary at Jackson's South Philadelphia home by persons unknown.

DeSean Jackson didn't change; the Eagles did when Chip Kelly became head coach. The Eagles knew about Jackson's alleged gang connections, his problems with authority, and his locker-room dramas long before Friday, when they released the wide receiver. They knew what they were getting when they drafted him in 2008. So for the team to imply that his off-the-field behavior or an NJ.com report that detailed his alleged connection to reputed members of the Los Angeles-based Crips gang had anything to do with the wide receiver's release would be disingenuous.
