The focus has been on what Josh Norman has done, or hasn't done. But the mailbag deals with the guy on the other end: receiver DeSean Jackson -- and what sort of camp he's having.

John Keim: Yes, DeSean Jackson is having a good camp and part of the reason, coaches and teammates say, is because of Josh Norman’s presence. That’s what good competition does for a player, or should do. It brings out their best and the prevailing notion with the Redskins is that’s exactly what Norman has done for Jackson.
“It sounds cliché,” Redskins quarterback Kirk Cousins said, “but that’s the truth of the matter. [Jackson is] a great talent and he’s had a really good camp.”
The story pointed out another reason, too - Jackson is healthy. The last two summers he’s dealt with minor injuries that took a bit longer to return from; you can take from that what you want. This is probably the longest Jackson has practiced in training camp with Washington since signing in 2014.
