DeSean Jackson tweets out word that he talked to “Big Chip”

DeSean Jackson AP

If DeSean Jackson’s been using his social media accounts to send messages, the latest might be an olive branch.

Via CSNPhilly.com, Jackson tweeted out a picture this morning of a grinning Chip Kelly from a practice last season, with the message: “Good to Talk to BIg Chip today !! Say or hear what ya want !! The Picture speaks for itself !! Winner…”

That would suggest there has been some communication in a relationship that seemed lost, with reports that the decision was made to part with the talented wide receiver a month ago.

Eagles General Manager Howie Roseman refused to address Jackson’s status.

“He’s still under contract for us,” Roseman said. “Until there’s anything to report on our players, that’s where we are right now.”

Of course, the Instagram photo of Kelly comes right after Jackson fueled the fires of trade speculation by posting photos of him with Seahawks coach Pete Carroll and Panthers quarterback Cam Newton and Raiders fullback Marcel Reece, so it could be Jackson’s just messing with us.

    The Eagles probably couldn’t find the value they were looking for so they decided to keep him. Hopefully when Chip spoke to him he made it seem like they were never going to trade him all along. haha. Sounds like he’s going to be an Eagle, though, and I’m happy with that. Go Birds!

    As the Eagles turn. Team Drama.

    Awesome. Keep dreaming NFL. Either give up a good pick or you’re not gettting him. He’s not getting released.

    Whats newton and reece have to do with this?

    Best 5 WRs in the NFL:

    1. Desean Jackson
    2. Cordarelle Patterson
    3. Jeremy Maclin
    4. Greg Jennings
    5. Riley Cooper

    I don’t think Desean is going anywhere this offseason. Philly is not going to release him, and with his salary, nobody is going to trade for him. I think they will hold onto him for one more season. I really do not want them to waste an early draft pick on a WR. They need help on defense. They need a passrush and they still need help in their secondary.

    It would seem there has been communication? He said he talked to Chip. Talking IS a form of communication. You’ll print wild speculation with little to no sources, but this you’re still unsure of? What a joke!

  8. jimmyt says: Mar 25, 2014 8:20 AM

    He’s not that good.

  9. thestrategyexpert says: Mar 25, 2014 8:20 AM

    Or Chip told him to try and bait more teams into tampering with him.

  10. joeflaccoallday says: Mar 25, 2014 8:23 AM

    Worst offseason ever.

  11. greenbird1 says: Mar 25, 2014 8:29 AM

    so it could be Jackson’s just messing with us.

    …….. Or it could be that your slowly becoming the NFL’s version of the National Inquirer. You dug up every so called ” league, team, & close to Jackson ” source. Then added in a hefty dose of rampant uniformed pundit speculation and dished it all out to us in a big bowl of Eagle/Jackson sky is falling soup!
    We we had our soup, now it’s time for you to eat your crow. Oh and please at least have the dignity to not act is if someone else in the media is to blame considering you’ve tried to throw buckets of gas on every spark.

    To think this actually used to be the best NFL site on the net. Guess all the early recognition when to your heads. Sad.

    If Instagram isn’t a credible source, I don’t know what is.

  13. jnks10 says: Mar 25, 2014 8:38 AM

    A lot of people are starting to believe that most of the information being leaked to the public is in fact from Desean’s agent. Desean changed agents after he signed his latest deal so currently his agent makes 0 dollars off Desean. However, if Desean were to be released he could rework a new deal for Desean thus finally getting paid for Desean.

  14. jblah says: Mar 25, 2014 9:00 AM

    Desean is messing with us..but all these no named sources are not?

  15. robertr2390 says: Mar 25, 2014 9:11 AM

    He’s a nuisance just get rid of him there’s too many receivers in this draft

  16. goldrush36 says: Mar 25, 2014 9:12 AM

    This dude better humble himself in a hurry or he will wind up in the cfl. Yes his contract is high but the market value is there. This is all about his attitude not his pricetag

  17. r8rsfan says: Mar 25, 2014 9:14 AM

    The dreaded “vote of confidence”.

  18. birdgang321 says: Mar 25, 2014 9:16 AM

    I don’t buy this as a resolution. He’s still 100% gone in my
    Mind seeing as there going to have to decide on cutting him. That would be incredibly foolish.

  19. robertr2390 says: Mar 25, 2014 9:16 AM

    Yes he wants to get paid for sitting on his ass

  20. cardiovascularendurance says: Mar 25, 2014 9:36 AM

    That picture he posted is hilarious.

  21. 4allintensivepurposes says: Mar 25, 2014 9:36 AM

    Not his coach. The one on his shoulder. He consults it in times of need.

  22. trezzyt says: Mar 25, 2014 9:39 AM

    This is Deshawn saying you think u can play me well think again He officially got the upper hand no matter where he go he will probably be the 1st or 2nd best reciever don’t think he’s elite but close enogh better then P. Harvin C.Patterson V. Cruz and R. Cobb

  23. WalkersVikes says: Mar 25, 2014 9:40 AM

    Twitter…confirming what we already knew. He went to Cal on an athletic scholarship

  24. ejm845 says: Mar 25, 2014 9:52 AM

    Maybe me Sean Jackson realizes if he gets released he will lose millions upon millions of dollars he’ll never get anything near the 10.5 he’s scheduled to make this yr be lucky to get a 1yr 3 million prove your not a pain in the a– deal

  25. grimreaper12 says: Mar 25, 2014 10:08 AM

    If Jackson is released, Belichick will swoop him up. Imagine him catching passes from the American hero, Tom Brady.

    If he really wants traded or released, he’s going to have to “talk” to little Chip.

  27. I have Unknown Sources says: Mar 25, 2014 10:11 AM

    On the status of wide receiver DeSean Jackson: “He’s still under contract.

    For us, until there’s anything to report on our players, that’s where we are.

    I’ve always been open and willing to talk to (the media) and our fans, and I think if it’s appropriate other than speculation,

    I’ll be happy to do that.

    General manager
    Howie Roseman

    The Eagles have some kind of issue every off season and it always seems to linger on for weeks and months. The truly successful franchises deal with these types of issues immediately and move on.
    I realize the Eagles have to shoehorn their way into the national media’s attention any way they can, but it does get old after a while. They are not a flagship NFL franchise and should learn to accept their lot just like the rest of the second tier teams in the league.

    “picture speaks for itself, winner…”

    You’re an imbecile.

  30. buzzlightner says: Mar 25, 2014 11:20 AM

    Good.. keep him for another yr.. either he proves hes worth the money again.. or he does enough to get traded for a better pick with a lower salary. Either way now ee can use 1st and 2nd pick on defense and draft a receiver in the 3rd of a very deep draft at the position.. allow the player to get his feet wet

  31. whiteknightblackheart says: Mar 25, 2014 12:25 PM

    nothing to see here folks. I am a hopeful Jet fan, but this dude is staying in Philly.

  32. kelz1966kelz1966 says: Mar 25, 2014 1:32 PM

    So everyone is realizing that it was all bullshizz made up by a blogger who works for the local sports talk radio station in Philly.
    The ass clown wrote it in his blog, and the station talked about it for days, then the rest of the media picked it up as fact and ran with it.
    This crap is no different than Professional wrestling.

  33. jackburtonsmullet says: Mar 25, 2014 2:17 PM

    All the clowns who said he would be released need to quit covering the NFL.
