Signed to a new three-year deal worth $24 million, Jackson had hoped to get quarterback Robert Griffin III to give up his number. That will not happen as Griffin quickly shot down talk of that saying “Fans everywhere please calm down. Not changing my # @DeseanJackson10 will kick off his new beginning with us in a new one #HTTR”

Jackson has since posted an edited photo of him wearing a No. 1 jersey, he previously wore that number while at the University of California.
Jackson is coming off a career season that saw him set career highs with 82 receptions, 1,332 yards and nine touchdowns.
