The Philadelphia Eagles could be looking to ship off one of their best players in wide receiver DeSean Jackson. There is a report that says Jackson’s personality isn’t fitting in with Chip Kelly’s new culture in the organization.
The Eagles are not going to shop Jackson. The instant they do, they’ll forfeit any negotiating advantage they may have in trying to recoup acceptable value in return. This is especially true with a personality like Jackson, who comes with a history of character concerns. However, if another team came calling, the Eagles certainly wouldn’t laugh and hang up. There’s an opinion among some in the Eagles organization that Jackson’s personality is not a great fit with the locker room culture that Chip Kelly is trying to cultivate, and the Eagles could be open to trading him.
Some team in need of a wide receiver will give Jackson a shot. It’d be interesting to see if the New England Patriots made a move to shore up their wide receiver group.
