DeSean Jackson ends holdout, joins Eagles camp

Over the course of the last week, DeSean Jackson has reportedly ended his holdout not just once, but twice. We're happy to inform you that "DeSean Watch" is now officially over, as the wide receiver has reported to the Eagles camp.

Jackson was, per our Eagles Rapid Reporter Kevin Noonan, around on Monday morning, undergoing his physical. However, he wasn't actually seen by reporters until he pulled up to camp shortly after lunch on Monday afternoon.

"Wasssup," Jackson said, per Les Bowen of the Philadelphia Daily News.

Jackson also informed reporters that he'd be practicing on Monday afternoon but was otherwise quiet.

There shouldn't be anything shocking about Jackson eventually showing up to camp, even though he's been pretty adamant about wanting a new contract and even though everyone (including QB Michael Vick) seems to have known he'd holdout a little bit.

Jackson stood nothing to gain by holding out until he actually got a new deal; he stood to lose a pile of money and a year of service. And the Eagles aren't exactly timid about holding their ground with players who holdout. Additionally, is Jackson really going to miss out on the chance to take part in the team of his -- and everyone's! -- dreams?

Doubtful. And it doesn't sound like he'll be too far behind because of the time he missed either.

"DeSean's in phenomenal shape, he's been hitting the weights and he'll have a phenomenal season," Vick said, per the Eagles official Twitter account. "He's ready to go."

Maclin is their #1 receiver this year. Jackson is just a hit away from being this years austin collie. He's got moves, but he's to much of an injury risk to be your #1 guy at wr

When he gets his 2nd contract, at the end of the first one, he should be treated as the #2 receiver on this team.  He's not big enough, strong enough, or smart enough to be the #1 guy.  That goes to Maclin.

To me, D-Jax is the most important signing between him and Vick. Simply because D-Jax is younger than Vick. Vick I figure will stay loyal to the Eagles for giving him the oppurtunity to play for their football team after him being released from prison. I think the Eagles can take advantage of that loyalty.
