Eagles Must Clear Up DeSean Jackson’s Status

DeSeanJackson7According to a report from Profootballtalk, Eagles’ wide receiver DeSean Jackson is concerned about his future with the team.

According to the report, Jackson doesn’t know where he stands and has told teammates he is concerned. The Eagles have done nothing to calm Jackson’s worries, particularly with Chip Kelly recently dancing around a question about whether or not the team was committed to Jackson. One source stated that the issue is beginning to become a distraction for Jackson.

One way or another, the Eagles need to clear this up and take care of the issue before it festers and develops into a bigger problem.

A distracted DeSean Jackson is going to hurt this team. Back in 2011 when Jackson’s contract was a problem, he allowed it to become a distraction. He gave the team subpar efforts each week, and was benched several times by Andy Reid during the season. Things got so bad between Jackson and the front office that it almost bought the former second-round a pick a ticket out of town.

Kelly and the Eagles could have avoided this unnecessary drama if they had simply come out and said “DeSean is a big part of our offense, and we expect him to remain so for many years to come”. That would have ended the speculation, and it’d be a complete non-issue.

The Eagles have gone out and handed out contract extensions to just about every significant player who was up for one this season, except Jackson. Though Jackson’s contract doesn’t require an extension, the wideout made it known after the season ended that he thought he was deserving of a pay raise. Don’t think that Jackson hasn’t taken notice of the new deals for Jason Peters, Jason Kelce, Riley Cooper and Jeremy Maclin. Jackson also knows very well that the team wanted to give Maclin a five-year deal instead of just a short-term one.

Distracted superstars who aren’t focused squarely on the game can have a tremendous negative impact on a team. With the Eagles failing to ease Jackson’s concerns privately or publicly, they’re setting themselves up for an even greater headache later this summer, unless their plan truly has been to deal Jackson sometime between now and the draft.

But assuming that the team does plan on Jackson being here next year and giving them another big season, they need to address this now and clear the air before things truly start to get messy.

Eagles needs to trade this “Cancer” before it gets worse and spreads
Package D-Jax & Bryce Brown to the Jaguars or Raiders for their
2nd & 4th Round Picks

From the Jags , that would end up the 35th & 99th Selections
From Raiders, this would be the 37th & 101st Selections

Make the Call Howie,
Both clubs need a WR & a quality RB and both Teams have the Cap Space to afford D-Jax’s Contract

Denny I can understand this post but really they don’t have to address anything. All Desean has to do is go out and perform like he did last year and he’ll be fine they’ll either resign him or another team will give him big money to play elsewhere, not to difficult if he pouts or underperforms who will he hurt in the long run? Paulman go somewhere with that cancer nonsense, they just gave a 5 year contract to a drunk ass dude yelling the n-word but Desean is a cancer? Priceless.

Yes but now it’s D-Jax who in showing his insecurities and selfish attitude
Snooping around and asking other Players & Reporters what’s going on at NovaCare Center while he remains out in California as he always does during the Off-Season Which is never a good sign to a Coach, though they will never admit it..
It’s D-Jax and his handlers keeping this story about his paranoia and insecurity alive in the media, not the Eagles as a ploy to trade him.
Md-Jax the player is a good one, D-Jax the Teamnate, locker room, team first just simply does not fit what Coach Kelly wants..
Screw this guy and the Drama and Distractions that he brings
Every year it’s something with D-Jax, and I am sure Lurie & Roseman are about tired of it..
D-Jax jealous because Mike Evans is making a NovaCare Visit,
What an ass he is, be a big boy and Man-Up and outply, out-work whoever is your competition come Camp Time.. Nothing is owed to you D-Jax, your 27 Years old now in the middle of a big deal so enjoy the opportunity to play for a Dynamic Coach & Offense, no instead, he will pout, whine and distract..
F him..

Until Maclin proves he is the same WR before injury, Djax is still the man. But Lurie’s toe licking first to get information reporters are writing stories and broadcasting the birds like a WR in the first round. So curious to know who they think is a superstar capable of replacing DJax?

cmon man. in 2011 desean was barely making 500k. guy proved himself and didnt want to risk his career. as fan i think its a selfish jackass move but to a man he had every right to “get his”. in 2011 he had nothing to lose and everything to gain. and he had some leverage in 2011

now he is about to make 10.25 million which is more than his total salary combined from every season prior.

this is all bs. he aint complaining, he aint quitting… he has everything to lose now and nothing to gain….

Stories are a plenty from Kelly’s non-answers, to the front office not “speaking up.” Desean received a huge payday prior to the production from the 2013 season.

Are the Eagles better from a “skill” point without his ervices, absolutely not, whether we draft a WR in round one or not, with the additional of Sproles, Maclin healthy, D-Jax opens up space.

Does his personality and attitude benefit this football team? It has already attracted negative attention after a positive free agency period. The focus should be on what other pieces we are going to add, possible trades Howie can work out with some of the pieces that are value to other teams and the 2014 draft.

With that said, to just trade D-JAX for the many reasons we can list would only make sense if we get value in return that can keep us moving in the right direction. What is his value in the market where he makes too much for his worth and the low end contracts we saw Decker take?

We can list the trade partners, but D-Jax is getting paid by the Eagles. They know what his talent can do to help the Eagles, and they can take Advil for the headache his mouth and actions are creating.

At the end of the day, D-Jax will be an Eagle for the 2014 season.

Teams like the Texans,Jaguars,Raiders would all be better off waiting until their early 2nd Round Pocks and use their First Selections on Position Players like Clowney,Mack, ,Barr, OT Robinson, WR Watkins for these are the best Players in this Draft

Fans bitched for 14 years that AR neglected the WR position, we finally have a 3 time pro bowler in his prime and now we don’t want him. lol Makes sense to me.

McCoy is already upset with the Aquisition and extension
Of Sprole’s Deal making Sproles an Eagle thru 2016..
McCoys overall touches and Personal Stats will decrease by 15% or so,
Which will likely extend his Career by reducing his work load
These guys have to understand that the more weapons means more opportunities for everyone and makes the Offense more difficult for Defenses to Defend & Prepare for..
Eventually both D-Jax/McCoy will get older and move on,
Then Coach Kelly will really be able to run his offense by a comittee of RB’s & Receivers which is what he’s did successfully at Oregon..

D-Jax recent complaints are not about his ContrCt,
It’s the lack of any off-season communication from the Coaching Dtaff and Front Office to ensure the Eagles are committed to him..
This per his agent and NFL sources, that he feels like he’s being outcasted..
Maybe he should show up to NovaCare Ctr to work out sometime and find out what’s going on if he’s feeling paranoid or unloved by his Coach’s/Front Office group..

Djax received a check the day he signed the contract ( hence signing bonus ) just because Jeff Lurie has the option of claiming that money on an NFL salary cap spread out of 5 years has nothing to do with DJax. ( he received that money that day)
Jeff Lurie currently loans the Eagles construction loans at 18% interest. Just because the tax profit report says the Eagle made less money it has nothing to do with Jeff Lurie’s profit it is just accounting.

No one took offense when Jackson got paid, take your victim head out of your ass

Jackson.brought all of this on himself

He plays with guns

He argues and is confrontational with coaches

He prances around like a bitch when he thinks he’s open and doesn’t get the ball, big timed his qb

After the playoff loss he talked a new contract

Jackson is one of the last vestiges of douche bag eagles on their way out

As far as any of us know DeSean is a productive payer that’s coming off a pro bowl season. If the organization, or coach has a problem with DeSean, the fans don’t know anything about it.

It seems like we never hear the whole story when it comes to DeSean – We never hear the whole story about why Reid benched him in the Cardinals game in 2011. Does anybody really believe he was benched for missing a team meeting?

We never got the full story on how a sternum injury (X-rays negative) on Monday night turned into multiple rib fractures on Tuesday and ended DeSean’s 2012 season in week 11. To all the fans it looked like DeSean’s season ended when he held out of camp over his contract.

We never heard the whole story about him fighting with an assistant coach on the sideline during a game this past season. But we know it’s not a good idea to throw your hands up in the air in frustration and not tackle a guy who intercepted a pass.

Maybe there’s problems we don’t know about. One thing for sure – teams don’t trade star players for no good reason.

Ad maybe this is a non-story…

To Paulman and Theone1 and all the others who are saying Jackson never made his contract an issue, read this post, seems you guys forgot, it wasn’t 48hrs after we lost that he brought this up.

DeSeanJackson3DeSean Jackson wants the five-year $48.3 million dollar contract he signed in March of 2012 restructured and/or renewed. The deal, which included a $10 million dollar signing bonus paid Jackson $6.75 million in 2013 and will pay him $10.25 million in 2014, but only $250,00 of this coming year’s salary is guaranteed. Jackson wants more of the money guaranteed

You all do not get it.

Find your Franchise QB. PRIORITY 1.

Surround him with play makers that are replaced every 3 to 5 years.

WR, RB, TE all replaceable parts….Period… (speed and Youth and cost savings)

QB, Offensive Line = Core.

3-4 Defense.

NT, DE, ILB = Core

OLB, CB, S = replace every 3-5 years (Speed youth and cost savings)

I disagree 100%,
This has D-Jax and his Agent/Business Managers
All over it.. Team Owner Lurie could give a Rats Ass about whether D-Hax is on the Team or not..

I disagree paulman, lurie is about image and Jackson is not good for the eagles brand, I don’t think lurie is behind the move to get rid of Jackson. But he will welcome it

I said months ago that D punk would be gone this year in a trade and some of you heckled at it. NFL.com headlines: Eagles’ DeSean Jackson draws Patriots, 49ers’ interest.

Uhhhh….he hasn’t been traded yet. As I stated before, the Eagles listened to offers last year and the year before that. Funny, a team like the 49ers and the Pats would welcome his talents…as they know what it takes to win superbowls. But we fans here in Philly are to worried about his twitter account and all other BS that has nothing to do with nothing!

NFL Channel & Reporter Ira Rappaport is reporting that
eagles are taking Offers for D-Jax and want a minimum
Of a 3rd Round Pick in Return which us kind of hard to
Believe, why say you want a 3rd Round Pick Publicly,,
I believe D-Jax gets traded to SF 49ers or the Raiders
For a 2nd Round and 4th Round Pick

I believe most Posters need to apologize to
“Gloomy” who called D-Jax getting Traded for a while now..
I now will refer to Gloomy as “NastroGloomy”

This is a Great News for this Eagle Fan..

I’ll sing by Eagle by when D Faction gets pushed out of here.
He’ll be replaced with bigger and better…minus the big mouth.
Eagles are still building..2015 will be the year to watch.
