DeSean Jackson “is as fast as ever”

Eagles receiver DeSean Jackson, who clumsily stumbled into a cartoonish incident of anti-Semitism earlier this summer, is generating positive headlines again.

Via Tim McManus of ESPN.com, the buzz around the Eagles is that Jackson, now 33, “is as fast as ever.”

Jackson made a big splash to start the 2020 season, kick-starting a sluggish Philly offense in a come-from-behind win over Washington. But then came a chronic groin injury that became corse muscle surgery that wiped out his first season back with the team, limiting him to only three total games and nine total catches — only one after the regular-season opener.

The Eagles would greatly benefit from Jackson’s presence this year. His speed stretches defenses and opens things up for quarterback Carson Wentz and the rest of the offense. The ever-present home-run threat keeps the Eagles in virtually every game.

  1. 50 catches , 750 yds, 8 TDS would be a major win compared to what we got last year. I really think Jalen Reagor gonna blow people away

    The Reagor pick was almost as bad as taking Hurts in the second. Let’s pray to the spaghetti monster Jackson stays healthy and atleast one of the three draft picks can even get on the field. I think Sanders is gonna be the star and Scott is gonna be huge in the screen game.

  3. If he’s healthy he’s still a home run threat. If Philly manages to get him for 10-12 games they’ll be tough to take the division from

  4. “Stumbled into a cartoonish incident of anti-Semitism”? Uh, I wouldn’t characterize it like that. He doubled down on it and then posted how great Farrakhan was. Thats not “cartoonish”.

  5. Jackson made a big splash to start the 2020 season? I didn’t know he could time travel. He must be really fast.

  6. The best way to show you haven’t lost a step is to have your team promote headlines like this. Certainly he will not be showing he is as fast as ever on the field. He is too old to run fast but now wise enough to manipulate the beat writers.
