The Los Angeles Rams are adding some veteran speed to their wide receiver corps as they are going all in with new quarterback Matthew Stafford. The team is signing DeSean Jackson, according to Mike Garafolo.

Jackson has struggled to stay healthy in recent years, playing eight total games the past two seasons. In that time he has 23 catches for 395 yards and three touchdowns. He has not played a full 16-game season since 2013.

He joins a Rams receiver corps led by the duo of Cooper Kupp and Robert woods. Kupp had 92 receptions for 974 yards and three touchdowns while Woods and 90 receptions for 936 yards and six touchdowns. They’ve tried to build Josh Reynolds into a solid third option, but he now hits free agency and his status is unclear. He had 52 receptions for 618 yards and two touchdowns last season.

Jackson still has big upside but he has not been fantasy relevant due to injuries. He’ll remain only a deep league option until he proves he can stay healthy.
