DeSean Jackson released by Eagles

Looks like DeSean Jackson B Gone Jackson now.
Reports link him to gang activity, drugs and unregistered guns...... That and a 10.5 million dollar price tag didn't help either.

Bet he is a Jet by tomorrow.

The DeSean Jackson saga has come to an end.
After months of speculation as to Jackson's future with the team, the Eagles released the Pro Bowl wide receiver this morning.

"After careful consideration this offseason, Eagles decide to part ways with DeSean Jackson. The team informed him of his release today," the Eagles said in a tweet Friday morning.

The 27-year-old, the Eagles second-round pick in 2008 out of California, set career-highs last year with 82 catches for 1,332 yards and nine touchdowns in first-year coach Chip Kelly's high-powered offense.

However, Jackson's future has been in question since the end of the season, when he was asked if wanted a new contract.

"I definitely feel it's something deserving," Jackson said in January. "We'll see how that plays out, and hopefully we can work things out smoothly and not have to worry about anything out of the ordinary."

Jackson received $18 million guaranteed when he signed a $48.5-million contract in March 2012 that would have paid him $9.7 million in 2014.

"I feel like I've proved everyting on the field. To do some of the things that top receivers in this league do, I think like I'm right there at the top," Jackson said in January.

In six seasons, Jackson caught 357 passes for 6,117 yards and 32 touchdowns. He also averaged 9.9 yards on 131 punt returns, taking four back for touchdowns.

Earlier this week Jackson reportedly told teammates he would be back with the Eagles in 2014, but Kelly was less-than-committal earlier this week when he spoke to reporters in Orlando at the NFL owner's meetings.

DeSean is all about DeSean. His celebratory type of behavior has no place in team sports. He'll find another job with another team that contains like minded indviduals.

Re: DeSean Jackson released by Eagles

Maybe him and TO can start a business together.... See YA!!!

Shame, talented player, just hate watching all the me, me, me stuff, celebrating when your down by 3 TD's, etc. Just do your friggin job, then you get respect.

stinks he couldn't have been more like Avant, come in on a key 3rd down, make a great catch for the 1st, get up and walk off the field. Class is what Jackson was missing.

Hopefully, he will end up in the AFC.

Cincy or Dallas will pick him up. Maybe Baltimore.

I still think he will get reunited with Vick up in NY with the Jets.

LA and the Raiders would be a perfect fit for him.
