I don’t think the Eagles should worry about hanging onto diminutive and super talented wide receiver, DeSean Jackson. He’s really a one-of-a kind type of player, but he can only be that if he’s playing with an attitude of “100% All-In” type of helter-skelter football with reckless abandon which he played with his first 2 seasons as he was making a name for himself.
Unfortunately since that collision with Falcons cornerback Dunta Robinson and that pass by Kevin Kolb, which hung him out to dry, he has not been the same. Then this season, with the lack of a new contract, he was hurt and disappointed. became unfocused once the team and he started the Season slow.. I think in the best interests on D-JAx nad the Eagles, he needs to start afresh with another Team and the Eagles need some new blood in at WR….
The Kansas City Chiefs are reportedly going to use their “Franchise Tag” on wide reeeiver Dwayne Bowe as I indicated a couple weeks back.. Patriots reportedly are ready to use their “Franchise Tag” on Wes Welker as expected..
Wide Receivers who I believe will hit the open market will be the following:
Buffalo Bills – Steve Johnson
New Orleans Saints – Marques Colston & Richard Meachem
Dallas Cowboys – Laurent Robinson
St. Louis Rams – Brandon Lloyd
Philadelphia Eagles – DeSean Jackson
It’s 50/50 that the Steelers will franchise Mike Wallace and that the Chargers will franchise Vincent Jackson. Those teams would like to use the franchise tag on them but can’t afford at this present time.
