Wide receiver DeSean Jackson says he thinks his addition to the Washington Redskins this offseason will prove to be beneficial to both him and Pierre Garcon, the team’s top holdover wideout.

“I respect Garcon,” Jackson said after Tuesday’s opening practice of this week’s minicamp at Redskins Park. “He’s a good player in this league, a great receiver. This is my first year really getting to know him and having that relationship with him. I think me and him will be able to be like that one-two punch in the NFL and have a great year. So whatever it is I can help him with, vice versa, whatever he can help me with, I look forward to that.”

Jackson, who was signed by the Redskins after being released by Philadelphia, had 1,332 receiving yards last season for the Eagles. Garcon had 1,346 receiving yards for the Redskins.

“It’s gonna be tough on defenses,” Jackson said. “People are gonna have to account for him. They’re gonna have to account for me. Not only that. We have other players involved in the offense, too, that people are gonna have to account for.”

Jackson said he’s excited about the possibilities for the Redskins’ passing game.
