This offseason, veteran wide receiver DeSean Jackson signed to play with the Los Angeles Rams, joining former Georgia quarterback Matthew Stafford, who was dealt to LA in one of the NFL’s biggest offseason trade this year.

Jackson has played with some serious talent at the quarterback position over his 13 year career, including Michael Vick and Donovan McNabb.

Stafford, known mostly for his incredible arm strength, might just have the biggest cannon out of all of the quarterbacks Jackson has played with.

There’s still chemistry that needs to be built between Stafford, Jackson and the other stud receivers on LA’s roster.

Add in Robert Woods and Cooper Kupp, and Stafford is surrounded by some serious talent.

“You continue to be great and just throw the ball, and I’m going to continue to be great and just run past everybody and use my speed,” Jackson said, via Gary Klein of the Los Angeles Times. “I think that’s the good niche about us, we’re just going to be dialed in and just continuously just learn the plays — and once the season starts, we’ll be in rare . . . form.”

Stafford is one of the best deep passers in football. Which is nice seeing as how, when healthy, Jackson is one of the league’s best deep-ball threats of all time.

“For me, I couldn’t ask for a better situation to have at quarterback. And the timing is perfect because they’d just got the trade done before I came and they signed me, so it was perfect timing. It’s going to be special,” he said this offseason. “When we were talking, we were like we can’t wait to get out there and start working together. We don’t know how the offseason is going to play out, but we’re definitely going to get together and work. That dude, man, he’s a beast. His arm is out the world. So, I’m excited too. I’m going to say, ‘I’m going to run far, you just throw it far’ and hopefully we can beat everybody.”
