When bad reports are written about players, they tend to affect the subject of the bad reports whether they want to admit it or not. One player who has been consistently dumped on during his career his Philadelphia Eagles wide receiver DeSean Jackson, and the latest reports about his uncertain future with the team has led to Jackson feeling anxious about the situation.
According to Eagles beat writer Tim McMannus, the reports about the Eagles wanting to move on from Jackson — whether true or completely bunk — are weighing on him and it’s causing doubt to cloud his mind.
According to multiple sources familiar with the situation, Jackson is unsure about his standing on the team and troubled by what is being written about him. He has reached out to some of his teammates to express his concern. One of Jackson’s top confidants says that the whole situation has become “a bit of a distraction.”
This whole situation has been furthered by the fact that the Eagles have refused to come out either publicly or privately and stick up for Jackson’s standing with the team. That could end up coming later, but Jackson may have also worn out his welcome thanks to his past antics as well.
It’s a situation to monitor and it may be one that Jackson eventually just takes into his own hands for piece of mind.
