Jon Heyman (via Twitter) has reported that the Nationals will sign Edwin Jackson to a 1-year deal. Terms of the deal have not yet been disclosed, however, Heyman projects the deal to be in the $8-12 million range. The Nationals did announce the contract agreement this morning, so we know the report is for real. Jackson will join a staff that figures to include Gio Gonzalez, Steven Strasburg, Jordan Zimmermann, and John Lannan, though according to Ken Rosenthal and Jon Paul Morosi of Fox Sports, the Nats are aggressively shopping Lannan.

The deal is pending a physical.
