After a strong finish to the season, DeSean Jackson is saying all the right things in Philadelphia. Starting with: “I’m sorry.”
“I can admit to certain things affecting me during the season. I just want to apologize,” Jackson said via the Philadelphia Inquirer.
Jackson’s effort and maturity were questioned at times this year, but never by his head coach publicly. Jackson admits he made mistakes.
“I probably could have handled it a little bit different, but now sitting here after the season’s over I can just say I was able to put it behind me and really just fight for my teammates, fight for my organization.
“I can’t really get frustrated over contract situations, or if I’m not paid how I think I should be, whatever the case may be. I can’t really allow that to go on as a professional.”
Jackson said he would welcome getting the franchise tag.
“Why wouldn’t I?” he asked.
Good question. Jackson had 961 yards and four scores this year. He’s a dynamic player, but not worth a one-year contract worth close to $10 million.
We doubt the Eagles will use the tag on Jackson, and there’s a good chance he’s played his last game with the team.
