Washington Redskins owner Dan Snyder is excited by the prospect of DeSean Jackson playing for his side next season.

Washington Redskins owner Dan Snyder has expressed his excitement at the prospect of seeing DeSean Jackson play for his team rather than against them next season.

Jackson joined the Redskins earlier this month having been released by the Philadelphia Eagles following reports linking him to a Los Angeles gang.

Despite Jackson denying being affiliated with the gang, question marks were raised regarding his off-field antics, but Snyder insists that he is a "really good guy" and praised the work that he does for charity.

"That's going to be exciting, and not just the two games against Philly. We got tired of seeing him score a lot of touchdowns against us and watching him on TV, so it's great to have him here. When you look at the fact that the head coach and general manager said this is the right move, the only thing I can do is support it and that's what I've done," Snyder told reporters.

"It's been great. I've spent a little time with him and he's really a good guy. I was reading this morning that he has a book on bullying out. I look forward to reading it. He's done a lot in the community and you'll see him here for the Redskins for many years. He'll be part of this community.

"What we'll look forward to is obviously great play, but also the fact that the stuff I'd love to see reported on - really deservedly so - is all his charitable work. That's something we have to focus on. He deserves a lot of credit for that and not a lot of credit has been given to him."

The Redskins are looking to improve upon a dismal season last year in which they won just three games.
