DeSean Jackson Interested In Eagles Reunion?

The Eagles are expected to pursue DeSean Jackson in free agency this offseason. Apparently, the interest is mutual. A source close to DeSean Jackson believes the wide receiver would be “intrigued” by a possible return to Philadelphia, Tim McManus of ESPN.com writes. DeSean Jackson (vertical)

As you may recall, Jackson did not have the cleanest breakup with the Eagles in 2013. After catching 82 passes for 1,332 yards and nine touchdowns, Chip Kelly unsuccessfully tried to trade Jackson and ultimately released him. This came right around the same time as a story alleging that Jackson had gang ties that the Eagles found to be troubling.

Years later, Kelly is out of the picture and it sounds like top exec Howie Roseman wants to make things right. It also helps that new coach Doug Pederson is a fan of the 30-year-old. A reunion would make a lot of sense for both sides and it is a situation to watch as we look ahead to March.

    If he goes back then he is a lot more forgiving then I am. Unless he is blow away by the $ I just don’t see him wanting to go back.

      Why would he? Money aside, he stands a better chance at playoff success with Washington. Philly just has too many holes, and I don’t see them being resolved in the time DeSean has left as a productive wide out.

        Unless he’s the type that doesn’t care about winning and just wants money.

        Wait, he’s still a productive wide out?
