Desean Jackson
 
I was listening to ESPN radio while driving last night and heard them address the rumor of Jackson possibly being shopped. I doubt it would be a good financial fit to the Texans, but the WR concerns with the TExans would be put to rest...

I like Jackson alot. Even though he is a diva and a baby he does produce and he's in his prime. The problem is he is expensive.

Texans don't have the cap space, and this draft is full of talented WRs.

Jackson is a gamebreaker but he's also a one-dimensional player, very expensive, and a locker room trouble maker.

I didn't realize we have concerns at wr. Are there any position we're not concern about? Jesus, how did we even win two games last season?

Wr were the only position that has allowed me to get a good night sleep this off-season. Thanks a lot dude. Now I'll lay my head with doubts pressing down on me.

LOL.. you are right, WR rates low overall and concern may have been tongue in cheek, so, don't loose any more sleep as a result. I just heard the talk of his potential availability and pondered the thought of Dre, Nuk and D-jax. What a stable. But the expense would surely detract from areas of real need.

Wow I didn't know he did the same thing before he got to the Eagles. That is just plain dumb.

Absolutely can't stand Jackson.

I'd be lying if I said he wasn't a good player. But I don't want him on my team.

Re: Desean Jackson
 
Just a hunch, but I don't see WR as being a position with many holes. We have many of other positions that have huge holes throughout our team that need attention

That said, I agree with bah. I'd add....he's a dumbass

He must be as bad as his rep if Kelly wants away from him after the year he just had.

This has zero chance if happening. Nowhere near enough money. Not even worth discussion. Doubt he even gets traded.

I read a report, I think it was on rotoworld, that after their season ended he asked for a new contract, even though he got one less than a year ago that pays him more than $10M per year...

Another Aaron Hernandez? Worth a read...

DeSean Jackson's gang connections troubling to Eagles
Quote:

...sources close to Jackson and within the Eagles' organization say, it's Jackson's off-field behavior that concerns the front office. A bad attitude, an inconsistent work ethic, missed meetings and a lack of chemistry with head coach Chip Kelly are the reasons, sources told NJ.com. And when the Eagles looked more deeply into why Jackson was missing meetings, they found that his friends were becoming a more powerful -- and negative -- influence in his life.

Now the Eagles have even more serious concerns -- Jackson's continued association with reputed Los Angeles street gang members who have been connected to two homicides since 2010.

Ever since New England Patriots tight end Aaron Hernandez was arrested and charged with first-degree murder last summer, NFL franchises have been reevaluating how closely they needed to watch their players away from the field. And what Eagles executives see in Jackson, a six-year veteran, is apparently a potential blight on the brand and a bad influence in the locker room.

As a source within the Eagles organization, who requested anonymity, put it: "They are concerned about having him around the younger players."

THE FIRST SIGNS

DeSean Jackson was nowhere near the scene of the crime when, on Dec. 29, 2010, 14-year-old Taburi Watson flashed a rival gang sign at two men as he rode his bicycle through South Los Angeles.

The men, reportedly members of the Crips, responded to the teen's provocative gesture by shooting him multiple...

Extremely rare to see 27-year-old player released after career-best season. Great talent, but big-time red flags on DeSean Jackson. #Eagles

It sounds like, based on the http://NJ.com story, that the Eagles were trying to avoid a potential Aaron Hernandez situation

The Eagles will carry $6 million in dead money after releasing DeSean Jackson. Saves them $6.75 million in cap space for 2014.

Re: Desean Jackson
 
Did their GM even try to shop him? I highly doubt that he wasn't able to get even a 5th round pick for a guy who is a game breaker and 3 year $30 mill contract is quite reasonable for a team to take on for a guy of his talent.
