Eagles receiver DeSean Jackson, one of the best wideouts in the NFL after only two seasons, wants a new contract. But he has been patient, avoiding any public gripes or demands.
And so it’s not a huge surprise that, as Jordan Raanan of CSNPhilly.com reports, Jackson will report on time for the start of the veteran phase of the team’s training camp.
An unexpected decision by Jackson to skip a week of Organized Team Activities in June prompted speculation that he was thinking about taking a stand. He won’t be, at least not yet.
A second-round pick in 2008, Jackson will earn a base salary of $600,000 in 2010, the third year of a four-year deal.
