Whatever the reasons were that the Eagles cut receiver DeSean Jackson, his position coach says there were no problems between the two of them.
Eagles receivers coach Bob Bicknell says he and Jackson got along just fine last season, Bicknell’s first year in Philadelphia.
“All I can say is I’ve never had a problem with DeSean Jackson,” Bicknell said, via CSNPhilly.com. “I enjoyed coaching him. I enjoyed the year I had with him. . . . I wish him nothing but the best. He did everything I asked him to do, and I really enjoyed being around him.”
Bicknell and Jackson yelled at each other on the sideline and had to be separated by players during a game in December, but Bicknell said that was a non-issue.
“Honestly, I don’t really remember too much about the situation,” Bicknell said. “It’s not something that really was carried very long. It’s something I think does happen time to time, but I had no problem with DeSean whatsoever.”
Bicknell may not have had a problem with Jackson, but Chip Kelly didn’t want Jackson around anymore. And as Jackson found out the hard way, Kelly calls the shots in Philadelphia.
