After the Los Angeles Rams released DeSean Jackson this week, he reportedly has several suitors.

Michael Silver from Bally Sports reported that Jackson spoke to Las Vegas Raiders officials during a Zoom call on Saturday.

Mike Garafolo, NFL Network's Mike Garafolo, said that Jackson currently has seven teams in the mix.

After failing to find a trade partner, the Rams announced Tuesday they had released the three-time Pro Bowler.

Raiders may be looking for another wide receiver but it doesn’t seem like they will make a move for the most important name available.

Silver said Friday that he didn't expect Las Vegas to pursue Odell Beckham Jr. after his release from Cleveland Browns.

The Raiders' cap situation may be one reason they won't pursue Beckham. They currently have space for $2.9 million per Over the Cap.

According to Mike Florio of Pro Football Talk, Beckham's revised deal with the Browns includes $4.25m in salary and a $3,000,000 roster bonus for the remainder of the 2021 season.

Beckham's remaining salary and roster bonus will be paid to the team that claims Beckham. The Browns will pay the remainder salary of the veteran wideout and Beckham will become a free agent.

Jackson cleared waivers on Thursday making him eligible for signing with any team. In limited action with the Rams, he showed great big-play potential.

On eight catches, the 34-year old averaged 27.6 yards per reception. According to Pro Football Reference, he only played 100 snaps in seven Los Angeles games before being released.
