The Philadelphia Eagles have been looking at a weird situation that past few weeks as it seems with each day that passes, the team become involved in more and more DeSean Jackson trade rumors.

While the team has yet to do anything or make any sort of formal stance on the issue, the matter was directly addressed by head coach Chip Kelly in the most indirect of ways.

 

Kelly’s noncommittal responses when it comes to Jackson’s future haven’t help ease tensions or kill rumors of a trade. In fact, the rumors blew up this past week because of noncommittal responses from Kelly and others in the Eagles organization.

Something will likely happen soon with Jackson and no one knows what. But the Eagles stance remains a muddled one and that’s part of why this is such a hot topic.
