Eagles General Manager Howie Roseman declined to talk to the media today at the league meeting about wide receiver DeSean Jackson, who is expected to be cut or traded. But he did hint that the Eagles could find a replacement for Jackson in the NFL draft.
“He’s still under contract for us,” was all Roseman would say about Jackson, via CSNPhilly.com. “Until there’s anything to report on our players, that’s where we are right now.”
Roseman did say, however, that the Eagles love this year’s class of draft-eligible wide receivers. Roseman said he thinks there will be good receivers available from the top of the first round to the bottom of the seventh and everywhere between.
“No question,” Roseman said. “It’s the best group at any position in the draft, in our opinion. . . . When you look at the draft and just look at the position groups, I think it’d be hard to argue that it’s not the best position group.”
Roseman sounds like a man who’s ready to draft a wide receiver who can contribute to the Eagles this year. After he cuts or trades the top receiver on the team from last year.
