DeSean Jackson retired as a member of the Philadelphia Eagles in late November.
During a Monday appearance on Kay Adams' “Up and Adams” podcast, the former Pro Bowl wide receiver had a completely different take on his future, saying he's “available.”
“I don't know, I'm available and I can still play. I'm here,” Jackson said.
The podcast host asked if Jackson would go to the Kansas City Chiefs.
“Is your shirt white? Is the sweater you have white?” – Jackson asked sarcastically, implying that his answer was yes.
Head coach Andy Reid's Chiefs have lost consecutive games and are now 8-5 one match left the red-hot Denver Broncos (7-6) in the AFC West. One of the criticisms of the team this season was the lack of depth in the wing attack.
Tight end Travis Kelce is still quarterback Patrick Mahomes' favorite and best offensive weapon, although rookie Rashee Rice is a solid second option. He ranks second behind Kelce in scoring (75), receptions (59) and receiving yards (663), while also leading the team in scoring (six).
No other player has more than 40 targets, and no other winger has more than 25 catches.
Much-criticized third-year backup Kadarius Toney has been the subject of much controversy following Kansas City's Week 14 loss to the Buffalo Bills on Sunday after he lined up offside for a potential fourth-quarter touchdown.
Jackson told Adams that he and Reid still talk “pretty often,” so the ball is in the 65-year-old's court.
Jackson played the first five seasons of his career under Reid from 2008-12 in Philadelphia.
