DeSean Jackson is Happy: Tells Teammates He’s Staying in Philly
If you want to know the status of DeSean Jackson and his time with the Eagles. just check his Instagram account.
Late Monday night, Jackson posted a message on his account claiming that he had spoken with head coach Chip Kelly and that you can "say or hear what you want."
Jackson also accompanied this post with a picture of Kelly chasing Jackson with a paddle in training camp last season.
Now Tuesday morning, Les Bowen of Philly.com reported that Jackson and Kelly did in fact speak and that it went as good as Jackson portrayed:
A source close to Jackson said Kelly told his star wideout “don’t worry about anything and keep working hard and be ready for camp," according to Bowen.
Jackson has also been calling some of his fellow Eagles teammates and telling them that he will return to the team in 2014 amidst trade rumors and speculation the past month.
Kelly is scheduled to meet with the media Wednesday in Orlando at the NFL Owners Meetings and he will surely be bombarded with questions surrounding Jackson so the timing of this conversation is certainly peculiar.
Many teams have reportedly expressed interest in acquiring Jackson including: Jets, 49ers and Seahawks so perhaps this news regenerates new interest.
Or perhaps a resolution has been reached and Jackson will be returning to the team next season.
