Report: DeSean Jackson concerned about his future with the Eagles

Desean+Jackson+Philadelphia+Eagles+v+Arizona+eTqyX60p_xUl Getty Images

Eagles receiver DeSean Jackson is reportedly telling friends and teammates that he is concerned about his future in Philadelphia.

Amid talk that Jackson could be on the outs, and after Eagles coach Chip Kelly refused to commit to Jackson, Tim McManus of PhillyMag.com reports that Jackson is troubled by the media reports 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 allay Jackson’s concerns, and one unnamed source said the issue is becoming a distraction for Jackson.

Jackson is a very talented playmaker with the ball in his hands and he put up the best numbers of his career in his first season in Kelly’s offense, catching 82 passes for 1,332 yards and nine touchdowns. But the Eagles may think the $10.5 million he’s due to make in 2014 is more than he’s worth.

Philadelphia has already locked up receivers Riley Cooper and Jeremy Maclin with new contracts this offseason. That the Eagles are giving other receivers new deals while not even communicating with Jackson indicates that Jackson is right to be concerned.

    He is going no where. He is probably worried about another raise. The Eagles signed Maclin to a 1 yr deal he is the one who needs to be worried…

    It would be very STUPID if my team (Eagles) does not diffuse this situation ASAP. Without Djax on the other side, do you really think Riley Cooper puts up the production he did last year? His presence on the field terrorizes secondaries and demands attention.

  3. 87hollywoodhorn says: Mar 17, 2014 10:04 AM

    oh im not concerned about my future with the eagles. I can safely say the who dats will wreck them everytime in the forsightable future

  4. thestrategyexpert says: Mar 17, 2014 10:04 AM

    This is a good example for other players to learn from by trying to figure out what went wrong that led to this awkward situation. Thanks for the free education DeSean we all appreciate it, except for the people that live in Philadelphia that weren’t asking to learn a lesson.

  6. dycenyne says: Mar 17, 2014 10:05 AM

    A guy that fits exactly what Kelly needs in speed is going no where…. Not to mention he has a multi year deal and flourished with he birds last year… This is media gossip at its finest shades of TMZ, National Enquirer or ESPN Headlines…….

  7. ravenswhat says: Mar 17, 2014 10:05 AM

    Desean, just walk bro. There are other teams that will def pay you. Heck, look at that former Steeler and current scrub down in Miami.

    Of Desean walks and they rely on Riley to get it done that offense is in dire straits.

  8. r8rsfan says: Mar 17, 2014 10:06 AM

    At some point, being immature, selfish and loud mouthed will come back to haunt. There is just too much noise surrounding this guy.

    or, Or, OR?

    No new is good news. Jackson is in the 2nd year of a new deal and is set to make 10.5 million this year (base $)

    and, And, AND?

    Media outlets are hoping to get a nice juicy soundbite out of Jackson who has been known to make inflammatory statements when prompted.

  10. parasolmonster says: Mar 17, 2014 10:06 AM

    “A source close to Jackson” – oookay, let Eagles fans know when there’s *actually* something to worry about.

  12. ravenswhat says: Mar 17, 2014 10:07 AM

    Also, it really bugs me when a team expects players to honor contracts but its ok if they don’t. Desean had a career year and was one of the top WRs in the NFL. Why is it suddenly a problem now to pay him what it wasn’t a problem to pay him when they typed up the contract??

  14. narfmoo12 says: Mar 17, 2014 10:08 AM

    So when they gave him a huge contract, wasn’t it Jackson, Maclin, Cooper, Avant? Now it’s Jackson, Maclin, Cooper, and he still has a huge contract. Why is he so confused? Didn’t he go to Berkeley?

  15. thepftprodigy says: Mar 17, 2014 10:08 AM

    Come to the Giants where you will be respected for your skills. We are a classy organization unlike the classless Philly organization that is one step from being relegated to the CFL.

    The Eagles addition of Darren Sproles, who has handled both punt and kick returns, also helps make Jackson more expendable.

  17. grndizzle says: Mar 17, 2014 10:09 AM

    I guess he shouldn’t have been lobbying for a raise less then 2 years after getting a new contract.

  18. clarencewhorley says: Mar 17, 2014 10:09 AM

    I think the offense Chip Kelly has proved that the receivers don’t really matter and that Desean should be paid 5-7 million and not 10 million.

    I am 100% that the Eagles will draft another fast guy and that Desean may be on the team this year but will 100% not be on the Eagles in 2015.

    If they got a 3rd for him I bet they would move him although I don’t think he is worth a 3rd with that bloated salary.

  19. dycenyne says: Mar 17, 2014 10:09 AM

    Is he getting slower? Then he’s going no where…. Chips teams are built on speed and Desean is the fastest in the NFL… No chance

  20. pftoracle says: Mar 17, 2014 10:09 AM

    T.O. version 2….get rid of him now.

    Straight up trade him for Calvin Johnson, that is a fair trade.

    One might want to look in the mirror for answers to that question:

    (1) desean publicly fought with his wr coach on the sidelines this season and Jason avant had to restrain him;

    (2) the moment the season ended desean lobbied for a new contract saying he was “deserving of a new contract”.

    Not only was he in the 2nd year of a 5 yr contract extension, but his play was poor to say the least the previous 2 seasons to the point where he even said he wasn’t giving it his all because of his contract.

    Yet they still rewarded him with a 50 mil contract. Rather than lobbying in the media for a new contract after ONE good season and 2-3 bad ones, perhaps he should at least play a bit longer on his current 5 yr contract and be a team player for once.

    It was obnoxious to lobby for a new deal when Maclin and Cooper were free agents that needed to be signed.

    Carolina: take note!

  25. mdobrasz says: Mar 17, 2014 10:11 AM

  26. selgaeinla says: Mar 17, 2014 10:11 AM

    Sorry, but Chip doesn’t suffer me first divas, which Jackson has proven himself to be. With the array of weapons the Eagles have now, including Sproles, and a real deep WR draft, he IS expendable.

  27. dickshotdogs says: Mar 17, 2014 10:12 AM

    Diva. The most self centered, self absorbed WR the NFL has ever seen, save T.O.

  28. magbastard says: Mar 17, 2014 10:12 AM

    He’s a fast wr in an up tempo offense. Easily replaced in today’s N F L

  36. dfwhawkguy says: Mar 17, 2014 10:14 AM

    Who can blame him for being concerned? He’s stuck on one the most pathetic franchises in the NFL. Doormats to the Boyz, Skins and Giants.

    What situation? The Eagles have said nothing and did nothing. What in the world is he concerned about? Seems like the Philly media just wanted to start a fire.

  45. autoriot says: Mar 17, 2014 10:23 AM

    Man, I hope we get rid if this guy before his value plummets! Before or during the draft would be preferred. As long as it is to move us up into the top 10.

    I used to love DJax. I called the pick before it even happened. I wanted nothing but the best for this kid. Over the years I have watched him turn into a terrible rapper, with alligator arms, with ME-First attitude, who is afraid to go over the middle. Unfortunately for him he is at a point in his career where teams look at their aging talent to see what they have left and decide whether or not it’s worth it to keep them or if they should get what they can.

    He’s been mediocre at best over the last four seasons, with last season being his best, and I think it’s time to move on. I hope we do and that we get good value for him that helps us rebuild for the future.

    All of you saying D Sproles can replace his production are laughable. DS return skills have significantly diminished and he was a shell of himself last year.

    It’s funny to see all of the Philly fans and media clamoring over Philly because they picked up 2 of the Saints castoffs. You’re not getting DS of 2011…just wait and see. And M. Jenkins will have you wanting to jump through your TVs after he whiffs on his first tackle attempt.

  51. pfatl says: Mar 17, 2014 10:34 AM

    Earth to commenters: He is not being cut and he will have no say in where he goes IF he is traded. You want him on your team, pony up some draft picks or GTFOH. If you are giving draft picks, eagles are listening. End of story.

  52. rickditka says: Mar 17, 2014 10:36 AM

    I’m surprised that these Eagles fans are so sure he’s going to stay. They’re not going to pay him 10mil. They know he’ll start whining about a new deal in week 6. He’ll be distracted in some other city in 2014.

  53. habsfanatic says: Mar 17, 2014 10:39 AM

    Boy this guy is insecure. Either they diffuse the situation quickly or they will move him since he won’t perform like he can if he feels the team doesn’t want him.

    Yeah what a diva, look at him threatening a holdout! (sarcasm). Also show me the quote that said he wanted more money. He wants more GUARANTEED MONEY . None of his money earned beyond this point is guaranteed.

    “I definitely feel it’s something deserving,” Jackson said at his locker in the NovaCare Complex on locker cleanout day. “We’ll see how that plays out, and hopefully we can work things out smoothly and not have to worry about anything out of the ordinary.

    “But I definitely feel like it’s deserving. I’m proven in this league, and after this past year, went out there, no distractions, and just really put it all in for my team and went out there and had a lot of success, so we’ll see how it goes.”

    Also to your point # 2, what receiver hasn’t had an outburst at some point. NFL players are all vain, tell one of them they aren’t doing their job while getting drubbed by an inferior team and I’ll guarantee they wont politely smile. By your reasoning Dez Bryant should be cut by the Cowboys because he walked off the field at the end of a game.

    cwas228 – as a philly fan, I like most of the moves the Birds made this offseason. Do I think Jenkins is a stud? No, but he is better than what they had at Safety before. For the most part though, the free agents they signed were meant to make our special teams better which were god awful.

    As for Darren Sproles, I seem to be in the minority in philly in that I hate the signing. It would be one thing to take a flyer on the guy as a free agent, but another thing entirely to trade a 5th round pick for a 31 yr old running back. I think we got fleeced if you ask me.

    I’ve seen many philly articles say – its only a 5th round pick – whats the big deal. Yeah, well Trent Cole and Riley Cooper were 5th round picks, and Jason Kelce was a 6th rounder. I’d much rather draft a guy with potential than a rb with over 100,000 miles on him and clearly on the downside of his career.

    Cwas, I’m a Philly fan too. I’m surprised you think we got fleeced. It’s entirely the other way around. The saints are in cap trouble, they had to dump sproles. We traded an unknown for a well-known. Sproles, even if his production is down, presents match-up problems and commands the defense’s attention at the very least. If is sproles doesn’t put up his #s from years ago he still is effective when he steps on the field. Little risk for much reward. Who does the defense cover? Can’t cover Maclin, DJ, Ertz/Celek, McCoy, AND sproles at the same time.

  68. therealtrenches says: Mar 17, 2014 11:08 AM

    The whole idea of DeSean being shipped out of Philly comes from sheer speculation by a guy who is notorious for getting it wrong.

    Kelly threw water on it by making a mockery of questions about it. But the media turned that into fuel for the fire by calling it a “sidestep.”

    Anyone who thinks there’s anything to the idea that Eagles might trade DeSean is an idiot.

    Now, we can include poor DeSean among their ranks.

    None of this should surprise us. He is as dumb as air.

  69. thegonz13 says: Mar 17, 2014 11:09 AM

    #1- Desean Jackson is hitting the Eagles overall cap from $9 to 10 mil for the next few years…this is the primary reason why he is being shopped.

    #2 Mike Evans WR with Texas A&M had two meetings with the Eagles’ top brass last week- this is another clue for the non-believers.

    #3 Mike Evans will be gone by the time the Eagles pick at #22. Which means…Desean Jackson, someone else/another pick, and pick #22 will be used to trade up.

    #4 Oakland makes perfect sense. They are currently at #5 and have the cap space to absorb Jackson’s contract ( he also played college ball down the street at Cal Berkley). Buffalo could be another trade partner. The Eagles want Mike Evans in round 1. then look for them to go all defense after that.

    —–

    Trust me, if the Saints wanted to keep Sproles, they would’ve. There’s a reason we extended Pierre and let Sproles walk. Plus, we signed the best FA safety in the league for 9 mil a year. It had nothing to do with the cap.

    I’m not saying the DS cannot still be effective…but he isn’t the playmaker that the media and most Philly fans think he still is. We have his replacement already on the team for about 4 mil less…Travaris Cadet.

  73. 123makarov says: Mar 17, 2014 11:28 AM

    It’s been Chip Kelly’s style since arriving in Philadelphia to make it clear no one has a starting position locked up.

    Think back to last year. All through OTAs, and throughout most of camp, the QB position was open to competition. We saw stories then, that Vick was unhappy and wanted to be named starter. It didn’t happen until after the 3rd preseason game.

    Another important thing to remember is Chip doesn’t have the same position that Andy Reid for most of his tenure. Andy had final say over personnel decisions. It’s not clear that Chip does.

    The person to harass about whether DeSean is not on the trade block is Howie Roseman. He would be a fool to answer the question, too, at least prior to the draft.

  74. luckyarmpit says: Mar 17, 2014 11:29 AM

    Since when did everyone start calling him DJax? Must we put stupid nicknames on everyone?

    DeSean’s arrogance and “me first” attitude would fit well in Dallas. Perfect for Jerrah’s Circus. Isn’t that where fading stars go to finish their lackluster careers anyway?

    Yeah, that guy who just signed with Birdman, looks like a gangster and has several gang tattoos? That worked out quite well for the Patriots, lets see what their opinion is on Mike Evans.

    #1 9 to 10 million is a reasonable number to pay for a guy who put up his numbers, no reason to believe he will falter from the yards he put up last year.

    #2 They also brought in the top 3 picks last year, they did a great job jumping up a spot for Dion Jordan eh?

    #hatersgonnahate

    Keep doing your thing DeSean, people cramped your style throughout college and the pros, too small, too fragile, not mature. Teammates love the guy so does the coach.

    Shady and Desean make that offense go.

    If they let either of them walk in the foreseeable future they will regret it.

    As talented as desean is he is the quintessential diva and ultimately a distraction. He’s more concerned with rapping (terribly) and crying about more money every year. Forget this guy philly fans his selfishness, stupidity, and arrogance will benefit us in no way and this is the deepest reciever draft in years we will be ok. Trade Jackson and get a 2nd, 3rd rounder for him.

    This is the same guy that quit on his team in a contract year.

  81. footballchic777 says: Mar 17, 2014 12:53 PM

    Well, you have already AGAIN talked about upping your pay BC you had a good year. How about you actually play out a contact w/out threats.

  82. dustinb18 says: Mar 17, 2014 1:00 PM

    #10 Stop whining ! You just signed a new deal before last season . You had no problem taking the signing bonus. You pointed out you didn’t get hurt last season / awesome . Yea and sooooo ?
    You want more money ?
    You gonna give back money from the past when you were hurt ?
    Didn’t think so.
    Shut up and help the TEAM win a SUPER BOWL !

    He is concerned that his Eagles career will conflict with his burgeoning record label owning soon to be BANKRUPT wanna be rap mogul career.

  84. kelz1966kelz1966 says: Mar 17, 2014 1:17 PM

    He has more than 1 year left on his contract. they are not going to extend him now. so why would they contact him during the off season. The players they have been in contact with were all free agents. You don’t see Nick Foles crying.

  85. gridirondre says: Mar 17, 2014 1:21 PM

    Send him to Carolina. The Panthers would be wise to give up a 2nd for him.

  86. cmurr1711 says: Mar 17, 2014 1:34 PM

    Desean being Desean, worried about one thing as always, himself.

  87. bigdong28 says: Mar 17, 2014 1:53 PM

    Desean, Just watch tape of the effort Cooper puts in to every route. Be ready to do that next season & you’ll have another career year. Any Eagles fan who thinks he isn’t important, needs to check the film. You may not notice him when the ball goes to Cooper BUT the other team does…

  88. eviladam420 says: Mar 17, 2014 2:22 PM

    As a die hard Eagles fan, I personally would be pissed if they traded DeSean. Yeah he can be a bit of a diva, but his talent is undeniable. It’s not like he’s making the team fall apart or causing problems in the locker room. He’s the ultimate team guy and is the catalyst for the Birds passing attack. You really think Riley Cooper is going to get the job done without Jackson demanding double coverage on the other side of the field? Think again. Yeah this draft is very deep at wide receiver, but do you want to take a chance on potential when you have one of the best young wideouts in the game already putting up crazy numbers? Please don’t do it.

  89. missingsock215 says: Mar 17, 2014 2:36 PM

    I’m absolutely cool with the birds shopping him for a potential draft day trade. See ya D-Jax. See, in two more seasons those legs won’t have that same spring and your no bigger than Allen Iverson. What happened to him when his speed started to dwindle? Exactly. Retirement hits D-Jax earlier than most and he’ll be broke by the time he’s 40. Trade em, draft a WR and move on.

  90. missingsock215 says: Mar 17, 2014 2:36 PM

    You’re. Sorry.

  91. psly2124 says: Mar 17, 2014 2:59 PM

    He has a contract he signed last year. If every player in the nfl needed reassurance every season there would be no time for anything else. Honor your contract a keep your mouth shut. Like 95% of nfl players do.

  92. fathertimemusic says: Mar 17, 2014 3:04 PM

    He reads the media too much and in Philly in particular there are idiots who make up spins out of thin air, including some absolutely ridiculous made up rumors about Desean lately. He’s sensitive to this stuff but he should know by now some of these writers are full of crap.

  93. steves11 says: Mar 17, 2014 3:17 PM

    Jackson made a big mistake by opening his mouth and saying he deserved a new contract after the Eagles were just eliminated from the playoffs. Hasn’t he learned yet that timing and discretion are everything?

  94. ianijm says: Mar 17, 2014 3:22 PM

    I really feel like all this DeSean stuff is just manufactured by the media. Chip Kelly didn’t “sidestep the questions” about Jackson or “refuse to commit” to him he just played cat and mouse with reporters like he always does.

    Jackson is going nowhere.

  95. SAV says: Mar 17, 2014 3:34 PM

    Hilarious the denial Eagles fans live in. Did you read the article? Jackson may fit on many levels but the Eagles aren’t interested in paying him primetime WR money. If they were he’d have an indication by now. The Eagles want to resign Maclin on a bargain deal, contingent on his health and compliment him with Cooper and let Jackson walk and accept a 4th round compensatory selection. If Maclin can’t go 14-15-16 games they’ll let both guys walk and sign someone else. Eagles have an offensive juggernaut and they need that big contract for defenseman.

  96. kastout11 says: Mar 17, 2014 3:49 PM

    This draft is full of burners that can stretch the field. They have a ton of options on offense and he is due $10.5 million. They need to improve their defense, not their offense. Seriously, how are you going to stop McCoy, Sproles, Eartz, Maclin, Cooper and whichever burner they draft. They can really help bolster their defense with that $10.5 million. Plus, they will need to sign Foles and Kendricks next year, which if they have years I expect them to have, they will need the $$$. Trade him for draft picks and dump the salary. He is a selfish player that I don’t want in Philly anyway.

  97. johndown9846 says: Mar 17, 2014 5:34 PM

    let’ see… due to make around $10M this year to run routes and catch the ball. Does he block downfield like Avant did or Cooper does? Nope. Does he return the ball on punts with authority anymore? Nope. That’s one reason why they got the multi-talented Sproles. Did he, by his own admission, quit playing when his contract was in dispute? Yep. Yet some clowns on here are saying that he is the ultimate team player. Nonsense. He is a narcissistic little jerk with amazing speed to get open, but as far as being a Chip Kelly types of player, he’s not. Add to the current situation that his residence was broken into and more than a quarter of a milli0n $$$ worth of stuff, including a handgun, were stolen. Not his fault, but it just adds more “wood to the fire.” They are going to have to pay Foles next year, and others, so D Jax and his hefty paycheck are going to have to go, sooner or later, to pay for other (and more pressing) team needs. If not this year, then next.

    Call Cam Newton. He needs help.
