It’s quite obvious Eagles WR DeSean Jackson wants a new contract, and considering his concussion history, it would make sense that he would be reticent to take too many big hits on crossing routes or wouldn’t be altogether comfortable fielding punts.
Various reports have said Jackson is upset about the lack of movement of a new deal and that his representatives are trying to keep him out of danger on the field.
According to a CSNPhilly.com source, the Eagles plan to take care of Jackson. At some point. Just not right now.
Apparently, this will happen “when the time is right.” And Jackson is OK with that.
The big reason the Eagles aren’t going to move right now, of course, is because of the uncertainty about the labor situation for next season. For now, Jackson claims everything is cool.
“It’s funny man, honestly,” Jackson said after he helped Philadelphia beat Houston 34-24 Thursday night with a three-catch, 84-yard performance. “It’s very interesting, the comments and what people say about me being unhappy or whatever the case may be. To me, I’m the happiest person doing it. I have a bright future. Right now might not be so great, but as far as the picture down the road, it will be great for me. The biggest thing is, we’re winning. I’m in the NFL. I’m happy. I’m 24 years old. I just had a birthday yesterday. I’m happy. Just blessed.”
