Redskins owner Dan Snyder, like most Redskins fans, remains ecstatic about signing DeSean Jackson. Not just because of the dynamic playmaking ability he brings to the offense, but because it means he won't be torching Washington's defense twice a year.

"That's going to be exciting -- and not just the two games against Philly," Snyder said Tuesday, via "We got tired of seeing him score a lot of touchdowns against us and watching him on TV. So it's great to have him here."

The Redskins and Jackson agreed to a three-year, $24 million deal earlier this month, after the Eagles released him for reasons that remain a mystery (though almost certainly have to do with Jackson's relationship with coach Chip Kelly).

Snyder, meanwhile, had no such reservations, and eagerly embraced the opportunity to land one of the best young offensive talents in the league, calling Jackson "a really good guy."

"I think that when you look at the fact that the head coach (Jay Gruden) and the general manager (Bruce Allen) said this is the right move, the only thing I can do is support it," the owner added. "That's what I've done and it's been great."

It's easy to be happy in April. The true test comes in the fall, when Jackson will be catching passes from what Redskins fans hope is a new and improved Robert Griffin III.
