Amid increasing sentiment that the Eagles are determined to move on without DeSean Jackson comes a report the club would even consider releasing him if needed.
In a story published Saturday, Manish Mehta of the New York Daily News quoted an unnamed source as saying that the Eagles are “trading him or cutting [Jackson]. That’s a fact. They don’t want him.”
The 27-year-old Jackson caught 82 passes for 1,332 passes and nine TDs in 2013 and earned a trip to the Pro Bowl. However, there has been no shortage of speculation that his time in Philadelphia is nearing a close.
Perhaps with that in mind, Jackson, as CrossingBroad.com pointed out, took to Instagram on Friday to post several videos of highlights with new Jets quarterback Michael Vick. Jackson also posted a picture of then-USC coach Pete Carroll on a recruiting visit. Carroll, of course, is now the coach of the Seahawks. Jackson also shared a photo of Panthers quarterback Cam Newton from the Pro Bowl, and he also posted a picture with Raiders fullback Marcel Reece.
