With Chip Kelly gone, DeSean Jackson has no hard feelings for Eagles

Wide receiver DeSean Jackson will be facing the Eagles this weekend, something that he’s done three times since the Eagles released him before the 2014 season but there’s a difference between this meeting and their previous matchups.

Chip Kelly is no longer coaching the Eagles, which means that Jackson’s nemesis from his final days in Philadelphia is off the radar. The Redskins wideout made reference to Kelly’s absence when he was asked about the presence of any hard feelings toward the Eagles at this point.

“I never really had hard feelings toward Philadelphia, besides being released by whoever released me,” Jackson said, via Philly.com. “I mean that is different, but I guess he is not there anymore. There have never really been hard feelings toward the city, the team, the organization. Like I say, things happen, you move on.”

Jackson has 13 catches for 283 yards and a touchdown in his previous games against the Eagles.

    Yeah yeah yeah sure ok right. I mean maybe he doesn’t have hard feelings for the Eagles, I’ll believe that. He still circles two games on the schedule though, just like every other team’s ex longtime players do. He’ll always look forward to games against the Eagles.

    He’s a free agent this year, he’ll be back in philly on the cheap.

    Glad to see that I’m not the only Eagles fan that would welcome him back to the team with open arms! Releasing him was a head-scratcher for sure!

    There are speedster WR and old WR in the NFL. But there are no old speedster WR.

    He’s going to have a BIG game against his former team. An absence of Jordan Reed, recent comments by Gruden, and the Iggles suspect secondary suggest a breakout game.
