The Philadelphia Eagles apparently aren’t over DeSean Jackson. According to multiple reports, Philly brass will make a run at Jackson in free agency, with the intent of bringing the one time Eagle home. Jackson left the Eagles during the Chip Kelly regime, being released by the team in 2013, and subsequently signed by division rival Washington.
The 30 year old wide-out has recently been hampered with injuries, and while Washington may be fine with parting ways with him at season’s end, he might not have to look far to find a new home. Jackson has caught 38 passes for 585 yards and 3 touchdowns this year for the Redskins.
Jackson played under current Eagles coach Doug Pederson when he was in Philly, and enjoyed some of his best years of his career. Who can forget one of DeSean’s signature plays as an Eagle, as he along with Shady McCoy and Michael Vick defeated the Giants in an improbable comeback.
Whether or not the Eagles will be fined by the league for tampering remains to be seen. This puts the Redskins in a challenging position, as they push towards a playoff spot. The two teams next meet up in Philly on December 11th.
