DeSean Jackson Wants A Raise
DeSean Jackson said Monday he wants the Eagles to renegotiate his contract and give him a raise.
"I definitely feel like it's deserving," Jackson said. "I'm proven in this league, and after this past year, went out there, no distractions, and just really put it all in for my team and went out there and had a lot of success, so we’ll see how it goes."

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.
Eagles coach Chip Kelly choose not to discuss his wide-outs demands.
"I don't talk about contracts," Kelly stressed. 'I'm never going to have a discussion over it."
Jackson set career-highs in catches (82), yards (1,332) and touchdowns (9) and caught three passes for 53 yards in Saturday's Wild Card loss to the Saints.
