You’ve probably heard by now that the Los Angeles Rams offense has a lot of playmakers on it. Robert Woods, Cooper Kupp, Tyler Higbee, DeSean Jackson, Cam Akers, Darrell Henderson, Van Jefferson. The list goes on.

This isn’t to say they’re automatically going to have a top-10 offense, but with Matthew Stafford at the helm and Sean McVay calling the plays, the sky is the limit in L.A.

Jackson has been on quite a few good offenses in his career but he can’t help but be excited about the group the Rams have assembled. On NFL Network recently, he said it’s going to be mind-boggling for defenses trying to slow down Los Angeles’ offense.

“Really just having the playmaker skill ability with the other wide receivers, the other running backs, tight ends. With a quarterback like Matthew Stafford, it’s really mind-boggling for other defenses or defensive coordinators to be sitting back, like, ‘Man, how we going to stop these dudes?’ For me, I’ve been on some pretty good receiving corps, but Robert and Coop, in addition to Van and Tutu, it’s going to be scary,” he said on “NFL Total Access.”

Jackson said he would’ve considered retiring this offseason if the right opportunity didn’t present itself, but thankfully, McVay and the Rams came calling. Jackson has been wanting to play for McVay again since their time together in Washington, and the two will reunite this year on a team with Super Bowl aspirations.

Jackson says the terminology is pretty similar to what it was in Washington with McVay, and he’s just thrilled to be back with the brilliant young coach.

“For me, I just look at it as being in a position where I have an offensive-minded coach like Sean McVay who’s in-tune and who knows how to put his players in position to win, first-off is the biggest concern for a veteran receiver like myself,” Jackson said. “And just having that fit and being able to gel together and being in a similar offense, a similar system where I know a lot that what we did in Washington is switched up a little bit but the terminology is pretty much the same.”
