One of the best wide receivers of the last 10 years or so is considering retirement.

DeSean Jackson, a three-time Pro Bowler and second-team All-Pro in 2009, told Sports Illustrated's Ashley Nicole Moss on 'Laces Out' that he might be done.

“I’m not really sure if I’m going to play next year or not,” Jackson said “I know I announced it and said I was going to play, but it’s just really, where I am at this point in my life, it’s got to be the right fit. To play 14 years in the NFL, going to Philly, going to Washington, Tampa, going back to Philly and then playing for the Rams and then playing for the Raiders, it’s got to fit right for me. But my career has been one hell of a ride.”

Jackson is open to playing in 2022, though it would have to be in the right situation.

The 35-year-old wide receiver named the Browns, Broncos, Packers and Chiefs as potential landing spots for him.

“We’ll see for sure,” he said.

Jackson spent the 2021 season with the Rams and Raiders.
