Rosenhaus won't repeat TO mistake with DeSean

Way back in 2005, Terrell Owens and the Philadelphia Eagles had a nasty little divorce. Owens' agent, Drew Rosenhaus, was at the center of the feud, made things quite public and didn't really garner a whole lot of popularity in the Philly area.

He's not going to make the same mistake this time, however, when he negotiates a new contract for Eagles wideout DeSean Jackson.

"One of the things I realized with the Eagles is that there’s an approach that works with them and an approach that doesn’t work," Rosenhaus told Mike Florio on Pro Football Talk. "And the approach that doesn’t work is to try and strongarm them and allow it to become public and take them on."

Look, Rosenhaus hasn't become rich and famous without being smart about stuff like contract negotiation.

And there's a reason why Jackson, despite not loving his current contract situation, has been pretty quiet about any possible disagreement he has with the Eagles waiting to give him some more money.

That reason is likely Rosenhaus' experience with the Eagles front office when he was negotiating Owens' deal, and it's also why you shouldn't expect any heavy griping or grumbling coming from Jackson's corner any time soon.
