Are the Redskins pushing DeSean Jackson out?

A DeSean Jackson return to Philadelphia has been a rumor swirling around since the former Eagles wide receiver was noted saying that he would not rule out a return.

A recent Instagram post could be a sign that he may be on his way out of D.C. and back to the City of Brotherly Love. The Redskins released an Instagram post featuring Josh Norman, Trent Williams, Kirk Cousins, Jordan Reed and Ryan Kerrigan. But no Jackson? 

2017 season begins now. We are all 0-0. #HTTR

A post shared by Washington Redskins (@redskins) on

The former Eagles wide receiver took notice and commented saying “Forgot bout @OneOfone”, followed by a pair of open-eyed emojis. The Redskins account replied to him saying “We love you @OneOfone.” 

But has Washington lost that ‘loving feeling’ for Jackson?

This past season Jackson had 56 receptions for 1,005 yards and four touchdowns. He played in every regular season game besides one and averaged 17.9 yards per catch. 

The Eagles have been looking for a deep threat at receiver. In fact, they have been looking for a threat at the position in general. 

Carson Wentz’s best target at WR, Jordan Matthews only had 804 yards on 73 receptions and three touchdowns. Nelson Agholor, Dorial Green-Beckham, and Trey Burton combined for 1,084 yards with 5 touchdowns. 

Jackson would be a key addition for Wentz as it would allow him to have a reliable deep threat and will be a better fit as the team’s No.1 WR instead of Matthews. 

Doug Pederson ran Matthews out of that bubble screen far too much last season. An addition of Jackson would create more opportunities with that play since his speed and agility is more suitable.

The Mets...

They're only slightly better than the Phillies on the diamond but they're way more fun to poke fun at off of it.

When Mr. Met isn't acting like a [eggplant emoji] to fans at CitiField, the team is busy producing bobbleheads that look like [eggplant emoji] to actually hand to fans. The first 15,000 fans at this Saturday's game with the Oakland Athletics will get a special treat.

As Deadspin points out, the Mets will giveaway this lovely Noah Syndergaard bobblehead that contains a hammer of strange design.

First tease of Sixers' new Nike uniforms pops up on Twitter

First tease of Sixers' new Nike uniforms pops up on Twitter

Nike kicks off an 8-year exclusive partnership with the NBA and will be the official provider of all jerseys, shorts, and basically the classic parts of the basketball uniform.

A number of team's have already released what their new jerseys with a Nike swoosh will look like. The Golden State Warriors and Sacramento Kings have shared images of their new jerseys.

Notice the swoosh on one side with the sponsorship logo on the other. The Sixers will have StubHub on their new Nike jerseys.

Chris Heck, the Sixers' Chief Sales and Marketing Officer best known for tweeting images with only a #OnBrand hashtag, shared what appears to be the first look at the new Sixers' gear with a Nike logo.

As you may or may not be aware, Nike is doing away with a traditional "home" and "away" uniform, instead producing four different uniforms for each team that they can choose from. Here's how NBA.com describes it:

Another significant change coming this fall involves adjusting the nomenclature of what were formerly known as “home” and “away” uniforms. Beginning with the 2017-18 season, home teams are not automatically assigned to wear white uniforms, and instead will be allowed to choose which uniform they want to wear for each home game. Visiting teams will then choose a contrasting uniform from their available options.
