Will the Eagles Deal DeSean Jackson?
CSN Philly's Eagles insider Derrick Gunn reports the Eagles are "listening to offers" for DeSean Jackson, and have "taken inquiries" from the 49ers and Patriots. A NFL.com report from Albert Breer indicated the 49ers are not interested in Jackson.
So how does Jackson feel about all these rumors swirling around him?
A source close to Jackson tells Les Bowen of the Philadelphia Daily News that D-Jax wants to finish his career with the Eagles, and would be "really hurt" if he were traded for "no reason."
There have been reports this off-season that Jackson is a a bad fit in the Eagles locker room, Jackson also made noise about wanting a new contract in January, but has since backed off that stance, plus with the departure of Jason Avant, there are rumblings that Jackson and wide receiver coach Bob Bicknell have not seen eye-to-eye.
My take on all this is the same as it was when I sent this tweet out on Feb. 28 -
When the Eagles brought Maclin and Cooper back - coupled with Howie Roseman's thoughts on this years wide receivers in the draft - it spelled doom for Jackson. Typically with rumors like this, where there is smoke there is fire - and there is no doubt in my mind that for the right price, Jackson will be gone.
