DeSean Jackson spoke to the media today down at the NovaCare Complex and said a lot of things. The crux of it is that the Philadelphia Eagles wide receiver would like a new contract after the career year he put up with the help of Nick Foles and Chip Kelly this season. He thinks he deserves it.
CSNPhilly.com's Reuben Frank has all of the quotes and specifics of Jackson's current deal. He seems pretty fairly paid if you're looking for my opinion.
“But I definitely feel like it’s deserving. I’m proven in this league, and after this past year, went out there, no distractions, and just really put it all in for my team and went out there and had a lot of success, so we’ll see how it goes.”
In a rather humorous twist, DJacc also posted this photo about two hours ago:
I think it's safe to say we're all going to miss the Eagles playing every weekend for the next couple of months. It's so much more fun watching a satisfied DeSean do his thing on the field than talk about money off of it.
But the kids these days are hungry and they want to eat up.
Let's just hope he never reaches truly "disgruntled" levels. Nothing wrong with wanting a little more as long as you go about it the right way.
