Blame it on Chip Kelly’s love for big receivers, DeSean Jackson’s salary or the receivers penchant for being a hard head.
Whatever the excuse, the Eagles and DeSean Jackson seem headed for a divorce.
We reported earlier in the week that DeSean Jackson could be traded or cut by the Philadelphia Eagles. Those rumblings are now getting louder.
Those rumblings have a lot less to do with Jackson’s $10.5 million salary he’s due, and more with his attitude and penchant for a meltdown.
Geoff Mosher of CSNPhilly.com explained the various rumblings during a Wednesday appearance on PFT Live, where he discussed Chip Kelly’s love for big wide receivers, Jackson’s salary and Jaccpot’s off the field issues.
The trade would be the Eagles first choice, but nobody has $10.5 million stashed for a little receiver with an attitude. Mosher said during PFT Live that Jackson could be “one false step away” from being cut.
I wouldn’t be shocked either way.
If Jackson refuses a paycut, then he could be released. I can’t see the Eagles giving him a new deal with new guaranteed money. With guys like Zach Ertz on the roster who are extremely versatile, Chip Kelly can still get the matchups he wants, without D-Jax on the outside.
