Raider Nation is serious about DeSean Jackson (Photo via BloggingDirty) Since being released by the Philadelphia Eagles last week, DeSean Jackson has recieved a lot of attention around the NFL. Up to nine teams had inquired about his services, and his first meeting was scheduled for this afternoon with the Washington Redskins. Over the weekend, when Raiders fans heard they were in the running for Jackson, who grew up a Raiders fan – they started the hashtag #DJaxToOakland and it quickly became the number one trending topic in the world on Twitter. Soon after, it was announced that Jackson would visit the Redskins, and Raider Nation did not step down. As DeSean Jackson arrived at Redskins headquarters today, Raiders fans were there rallying, letting Jackson know that he needed to sign in Oakland, who happens to be loaded with cap space and in need of a wide receiver. It would be a perfect match, and the Raiders are reportedly one of three teams that are heavily involved in signing the former Eagles receiver that was released due to his  alleged off the field affiliations. What do you think? Would a fan base rallying across the world for you to sign with them prompt you to do so?
