Zzzzz Even at 30, Redskins' Jackson thinks his best football is still ahead of him

Zzzzz Even at 30, Redskins' Jackson thinks his best football is still ahead of him

ASHBURN — Reporting on DeSean Jackson’s demise has been a growth industry over the last five years, as every injury or dip in production has brought with it a prediction that Jackson’s best days are behind him.

Each time, though, Jackson has found a way to spin the narrative with a game-changing catch.

The star receiver turned 30 last week, sandwiching a lavish birthday party between strong outings against the Dallas Cowboys and Arizona Cardinals.

“I feel like I’m 20,” Jackson said. “Still feel fast and young. It’s just a number, honestly. This game we play, I guess when you get to that age they start to think you’re getting slower, getting older. As long as I can continue to go out there and keep lighting the scoreboard up, and scoring and having fun, that’s all that really matters.”
