Report: DeSean Jackson Won’t Play For Philadelphia Eagles This Season

DeSean Jackson, Corey WhiteDeSean Jackson might not be with the Philadelphia Eagles for long.

Reports out of Philadelphia earlier this week indicated that, while the Eagles aren’t pursuing trades for Jackson, they are answering calls about the veteran wide receiver. The New England Patriots reportedly were one of the teams that called the Eagles about Jackson, though a trade to the Patriots is unlikely.

Jackson might be headed out of Philadelphia sooner rather than later, however.

“There is no way he’s an Eagle this year,” a person close to Jackson told The Morning Call of Allentown. “However it leaked out, it leaked out, and now this is what you have.”

Jackson and Eagles head coach Chip Kelly reportedly do not get along. Jackson also signed a five-year, $47 million contract two years ago that the speedy wideout is not happy with anymore.
