While reports of what appear to be DeSean Jackson’s inevitable departure from Philadelphia have ramped up lately, the decision to make it inevitable might be quite old.
According to Jimmy Kempski of Philly.com, citing a source close to the team, the Eagles “decided to move on from Jackson well over a month ago, and possibly earlier.”
Whatever the motivations for such a move might be, it now seems certain a move will be made.
Whether Kelly and Eagles officials are able to make it happen at the league meetings in Orlando remains to be seen, but it seems they’ve decided that he’ll be a former-Eagle soon.
Though his attitude and value compared to his $10.5 million salary can be questioned, his value on the field cannot, which makes the pursuit of the truth in this case fascinating to watch.
