After signing a one-year deal with the team in February, Edwin Jackson hopes to re-sign with the Nationals this coming winter.
Jackson was offered a multi-year deal by the Pirates last offseason, but he declined.
"Anything more than one year," said Jackson about the years he would like on his contract. "I'm not sure. If the team feels they do want to keep me, we'll go from there. As far as the amount of years, it would be nice to settle down for more than one year, for sure."
He has gone 7-9 with a 3.79 ERA in 23 starts for Washington.
"I would like to [stay]," Jackson said. "I could see myself being a part of [the Nationals], but at the end of the day, it's up to ownership. But right now, I'm concerned about finishing up this year strong and hopefully helping us to a championship.
"It's hard not to have fun with the team that we have. Winning and fun -- they kind of correlate. They go together. When you are winning, you are having fun. When we are having fun, we are winning. That's what we have been doing. It's a great team. Everyone gets along. It's been great team [chemistry]."
