Multiple Teams Interested in DeSean Jackson
NFL.com's Ian Rapoport reports the Panthers and Raiders have inquired on the availability of Eagles wide out DeSean Jackson. Those teams join the Jets, 49ers and Patriots as teams known to have looked in on the Eagles' top receiver.
There have been so many conflicting reports on the Eagles' feelings about D-Jax that it's hard to know what to believe - but one thing seems certain - Jackson's days seemed to be numbered in Philly.
One person close to Jackson told the beat writer Nick Fierro Allentown Morning Call that there's "no way" Jackson will return to the Eagles in 2014. "There is no way he's an Eagle this year," the person close to Jackson said according to the paper. "However it leaked out, it leaked out, and now this is what you have."
There have been conflicting reports on Jackson's Philly future, but it's pretty clear the Eagles are at least listening to the phone calls and if and when they hear the right price they are willing to move him.
In March of 2012, Jackson signed a five-year, $48.2 million contract that included $15 million guaranteed. He's owed $10.25 million in 2014 base salary and a total of $30.5 million in salary plus workout bonuses over the next three years.
