Now that the Washington Redskins have secured the second overall pick to presumably draft Baylor quarterback Robert Griffin III, the Redskins can now focus on their targets in NFL Free agency. One of those targets is expected to by San Diego Chargers free agent wide receiver Vincent Jackson, who Redskins head coach Mike Shanahan is apparently a big fan of.

Shanahan reportedly was interested in attempting to trade for Jackson last offseason, but with the lockout and shortened off season it wasn't very feasible, not to mention the fact that Jackson was franchise tagged by the Chargers. Most expect Shanahan and the Redskins to make Jackson a priority when free agency starts on Tuesday March 13.
