NFL Rumors: Could the Philadelphia Eagles cut DeSean Jackson?


The Philadelphia Eagles 2014 wide receiver situation is beginning to take shape. Last week, the team was able to secure deals with both Riley Cooper and Jeremy Maclin, and on Tuesday, they cut veteran Jason Avant. Still, the issue of DeSean Jackson possibly wanting a significant amount of money from the team, as has been reported a few times this offseason, still lingers.

But, could the Eagles actually consider putting Jackson on the chopping block? Geoff Mosher of CSNPhilly believes that it’s not out of the realm of possibility.


This is about as big of a stretch as you can get, in my opinion. We saw last season that Jackson was a huge part of the Chip Kelly offense working so well that the team was able to make the playoffs.

If anything, they would trade Jackson and get themselves a good amount in return to compensate for his absence. This “one false step away” deal probably is nothing short of him committing a felony. Otherwise, if they don’t want him around anymore, they’ll ship him somewhere themselves.
