Fans: Be Care What You Wish For!

Despite being a huge proponent of the playmaker supreme DeSean Jackson (He can beat in return game, receiving and running) he has a risk component we need to stop and think about.

As a head coach, a player with his demeanor can quickly corrupt the team concept and bring dissension and unstabilizing forces which quickly can offset anything he brings to the game from a talent standpoint.

At 27, he is worth a risk IMO - but only to a point. I had a player years ago who had talent out the ears but could not control his emotions - he brought dissension to the team and was moody, irritable and often depressing to be around. He account for more than 50% of our offensive production, but we lost a lot anyway. He simply would not play within a team concept - could not - as I look back on it.

Any contract to a guy like Jackson (and I would be jumping up and down here in Mexico) must include incentives based on lack of implosion around him (penalties, showboating, locker room spiffs...). On a character first team like RM is building we all know Jackson is already involved in anti-bullying campaign in the Bay area. But the history of DJ says - buyer beware!

What are your thought? Do you think RM can afford NOT to sign him?

Do you think he must offer a "suitable" contract for the talent+history/rep he brings with him?

Is this a gamble we MUST take?
