Carson Wentz: It’s different playing with a guy like DeSean Jackson

The Eagles got a glimpse of what the Carson WentzDeSean Jackson connection could look like during Monday’s practice.

Wentz hit the wideout for a deep touchdown and Jackson took a screen pass from the quarterback to the end zone for another score during a productive day for the duo. Not every day in camp has been so successful, however.

Saturday’s practice saw the two players struggle to connect and Jackson said the two players are “just trying to get the timing down” as they head toward the regular season. Wentz said “it’s different playing with” a guy like Jackson so that effort may take some time, but Wentz is optimistic about where things are headed.

“Chemistry grows in a million different ways,” Wentz said, via DelawareOnline.com. “Physical reps are second to none, but just talking through everything . . . I feel in a really good spot with him.”

The Eagles didn’t feature deep passes much last season, but Jackson’s presence offers a chance to change that. If that goes well, Jackson believes it is “going to be hard for another defense to have literally four or five different cover guys who can cover everybody and stop everybody” in an Eagles offense that’s feeling good about itself this summer.

  1. All the young guys seem either in awe or afraid of Djax. Guess he’s been around long enough and had the type of career to earn that respect.

  2. Two newly paid elite-money guys finally manage to connect for 2 balls playing flag football.

  3. Having Jackson back with his speed will pull safeties his way, which could open up the deep seams for Ertz/Goedert. And then there’s Jeffery on the other side. If the OL gives Wentz time to throw, they will put up some numbers.

  4. If you mean different as in having a guy who is 100% completely about himself then yes I guess it is different there Carson.

  5. Health is the key. With an O-line that can run block and pass protect, and legitimate weapons everywhere you look, this offense could average thirty points a game. The should easily make the divisional round of the playoffs. Health is the key.

    Could you imagine being miserable every day?

  7. “All the young guys seem either in awe or afraid of Djax. Guess he’s been around long enough and had the type of career to earn that respect.”

    Which young guys?

  8. They both will become best buds when they are in the trainers room getting medical treatments for their inevitable injuries. They give new meaning to the definition of “fragile”.
