Latest On DeSean Jackson

For months now, there has been speculation about DeSean Jackson returning to the Eagles via free agency this offseason. The wide receiver hasn’t done much to stop that talk with his latest comments to ESPN’s Adam Schefter (audio link). "<strong

It definitely is a great story or ending, I guess you could say,” Jackson said (via PFT). “Starting your career somewhere then going to a division rival team [and] having the possibility of maybe going back. You just kind of think about all of that when you start somewhere maybe you could finish it. There is just a lot of speculation of a lot of thoughts. It all sounds good, but you really never know until the final decision is made. I’m just a firm believer that if you work hard, you put in the work, continuously go out there and show everybody what you’re capable of [then] the sky’s the limit.”

Jackson is reportedly eyeing a return to the Eagles, though he is also on the record as saying that he wants to stay with the Redskins. Jackson, 30, could be on the verge of losing his trademark speed, but he was still productive last year as he hauled in 56 catches for 1,005 yards and four touchdowns. There will be a healthy market waiting for Jackson in March and the Eagles won’t be the only team pursuing him. That group of suitors could include the Buccaneers. Josina Anderson of ESPN.com (on Twitter) hears the Bucs could be a possible destination for DJax and his relationship with quarterback Jameis Winston could help to facilitate a deal.

    If the Rams ain’t in on this guy, then I don’t know who the hell they are in for.

    As a diehard Chiefs fan I think that Andy Reid can squeeze another year out of this guy i’m just not sure Alex Smith can

    If I was Jackson I wouldn’t give the eagles the time of day. After what the organization did to ruin his reputation and run him out of town. I’d tell philly and there fans to kiss my butt.

      Pretty sure Djax was fully responsible for his own reputation. He wasn’t exactly a grade A part of society locally.

      • Polish Hammer

        Exactly! He was a scumbag before coming to Philly. Trying to get his contract redone every year because he is broke and was into his agent for advances got old too. Then there’s the alleged gang ties as well as his bogus police report….good riddance, don’t come back to Philly!

    • Dark_Knight

      He wasn’t innocent. He had his off the field issues with Reid too.

      Besides, it was Chip that ran him out.

    D’Azur getting old I know the pats don’t need WRs but u wanna win a championship got to the pats ur getting old and there ur best chance at a ring before u hang it up

    Jackson is definitely slowing down, but probably has a couple years left. He’ll be a tough signing, as he isn’t an $8mil player anymore but still thinks he is.

    Perfect “New England type” signing. Aging veteran with a lot left in the tank and a nice resume who has had his share of problems on and off the field. Leave it to Belicheck to squeeze every last ounce out of a guy.

    The Patriots don’t need another washed up receiver. Though Jackson has speed and is a nice piece to have the Patriots offense is one of the more complex offenses to learn !
