NFL Rumors: Eagles think they can replace DeSean Jackson with combination of weapons


The Philadelphia Eagles have the task of replacing one of most, if not the most, explosive receiver in the NFL. Last month the Eagles infamously cut DeSean Jackson due to — well, we don’t really know — and that has now left a void in the offense that can’t be filled by a single player.

So, according to Bart Hubbuch from the New York Post, the Eagles are planning on replacing Jackson not with one player but rather a committee of them in 2014.

 

The Eagles went out and traded for Darren Sproles, already have weapons like Zach Ertz and LeSean McCoy on their roster and re-signed both Jeremy Maclin and Riley Cooper to decent contracts this offseason.

Jackson will be missed, and he’s a valuable players given how many are replacing him, but it’s clear the Eagles are moving on from releasing him and are spoiling themselves with the weapons they have.
