Afternoon Round-Up: Kendricks Backs DeSean

NFL: Detroit Lions at Philadelphia Eagles
Plenty of Eagles-related activity today. Here’s what’s happening:

Linebacker Mychal Kendricks isn’t buying into the narrative that DeSean Jackson is a drag on the locker room, according to NFL.com’s Marc Sessler.

Kendricks went on to call Jackson “misunderstood,” said that he was very focused last year and “didn’t give anybody problems.”




As we wrote back in November, Jackson appeared more engaged this season than he had been in the past. Jackson said that's because he had "bought in all across the board. Never really had done that in the past, maybe sometimes fighting the system.”

“He’s definitely -- on and off the field -- been a better teammate this year,” said Jason Kelce. “Just the way he carries himself. Much more involved with the entire offense, much more a part of the entire team.”

Maybe Jackson isn't an ideal culture fit, but the notion that hurt team chemistry last season seems off base.

-- Is Michael Vick New Jersey bound? Could be. Eliot Shorr-Parks with the scoop.

Vick is planning on visiting the Jets, and it could come as early as Friday, a source close to the situation has told NJ.com. This will be Vick's first official visit, and could be his last if all goes well. And the pressure could be on the Jets to land a free agent, given a methodical and (basically) fruitless approach that has left fans impatient and critical of general manager John Idzik -- while the Giants have been on a shopping spree.

Vick is looking for a starting job, but the Jets -- while they won't declare the quarterback situation settled -- seem committed to second-year Geno Smith.

Talk inside the Vick camp had a heavy lean towards the Jets prior to the start of free agency. Vick wants a chance to compete for the starting job, and as Pro Football Talk reported, doesn't want to go to a team that is going to spend a high pick on a quarterback, thereby lessening his chances of earning the starting gig. New York is probably the right play for him.

--  And finally, Chip Kelly's Pro Day tour continues. From Jimmy Kempski.

Chip Kelly is making the rounds at college pro days around the country, which he evidently seems to really enjoy. On Monday, Kelly visited Louisville to watch players like QB Teddy Bridgewater, S Calvin Pryor, and DE Marcus Smith work out. On Tuesday, he visited Florida State.

The player many will associate with Florida State in terms of the upcoming draft is WR Kelvin Benjamin. However, Florida State is absolutely loaded with great defensive prospects. DT Timmy Jernigan will almost certainly be a first round pick, LaMarcus Joyner is a short, but hard hitting playmaker at safety, and LB Christian Jones is a versatile player who can run, tackle, cover, and rush the passer. The Eagles paid some extra attention to Jones at the Senior Bowl. And then there's S Terrence Brooks and LB Telvin Smith, who could both be Day 2 picks. Just give me that entire Noles defense.

    Ever since Chip came around I feel like Desean has been maturing. Hes been great for his growth in my opinion

    • Joe from Easton

      I see the radio silence on the Eagles’ part as a symbol of exactly that… My guess is they just want to see if DeSean is going to blow his top over nothing but off-season media hype or if he really has taken the next step and is simply going to show up next month and handle business in OTA’s. Hopefully DJax recognizes this too and just blows this crap off, shows up, and balls out. That’s what going to earn him the “security” he wants, not getting pissy over speculation.

      • Andy124

        My guess is they just want to see if DeSean is going to blow his top over nothing but off-season media hype

        No. I’m sorry, but they’re not effing with a guy just to see how he reacts. This and all the other, ‘ploy to manipulate DJ in some way shape or form’ theories need to be put to bed.

        • Joe from Easton

          How do you know? They put him on the third string practice team last year. That wasn’t simply because he was learning plays… so was everyone else. It’s a plausible thought.

          • Brian

            That was an actual punishment for Not learning the plays, from each position.

          • Andy124

            I certainly don’t “know”. But I don’t think it’s realisitc. If you think it’s plausible we’ll just have to disagree.

        • Eagles4Life

          Right. You don’t just screw with people for the hell of it.

        • therealpistolp

          The teams they say might be interested are better than us!! I’m pretty sure desean wouldn’t mind playng for the pats or the niners… Why would he feel some extra need to pass some subliminal test?? It’s not like he chopped liver

      • therealpistolp

        The team is not speaking because they are listening to offers.. If they hear something they like then 10 is gone!! No need to risk speaking to soon..

  • JosephR2225

    Why won’t this story just die?

    • Andy124

      Because it’s been injected with cockroach DNA.

      • JosephR2225

        … you’re saying Jerry Jones is the “source” behind it all?

        • Andy124

          We blame Banner for story-planting around here buddy. Jerry’s too senile for that kind of tom-foolery.

  • Nfl All Day

    So glad to read those comments from Kenndricks and Kelce. Love how hard people were riding the “locker room cancer” narrative the last 2 days with zero evidence other than a sideline sceaming match. Maybe next year it’s a more realistic and intelligent move, but damn! We finally got some ROI outta the kid and these people really wanna get rid of him? Best comment I read yesterday, dude said “you wanna give up a diamond for a chance to put your hand in a bag full of rocks and a few pieces of gold!” Dont remember who’s comment it was, but it was a perfect analogy.

    • Andy124

      Just so there’s no confusion with others, the Kelce comment was from the November posting, not a response to the recent situation.

      • Nfl All Day

        Sure, but the sentiment is the same.

        • Andy124

          Absolutely.

    • anon

      Buy low sell high

  • damrvrhunter

    The fear is that Desean bought in knowing it was a “virtual” contract year and now that the team seems unwilling to guarantee any part of that 10 mil he is due for this upcoming season, maybe he reverts all the way back to petulance. After all who wants to risk there health every week on just 500k per game checks.

    • jabostick

      I don’t defend him dogging it when he wanted a new contract. But a difference is he was coming off a severe concussion and was living off a rookie contract. No sympathy for a guy who doesn’t manage his money well but I can see his argument coming off the rookie deal. I wouldn’t assume he’ll take the same stance with his current deal

  • http://iKillRats.com/ Charlie Kelly

    percy harvin got what?? desean is better then percy harvin. Has less wear and tear then percy harvin… 100% HEALTHY unlike percy harvin…. smfh….

    • Yes_General

      Percy can stretch the field AND play the slot. How can you say Desean is better when he’s affraid to get physical?

      • http://iKillRats.com/ Charlie Kelly

        Desean plays in the slot too!! He playeed 29-30% of his snaps out of the slot, AND he is a much more developed OUTSIDE WR!!! And what is more valuable?/ PLAYING OUTSIDE WR!!! Ask wes welker!! lol.. And desean isnt a afraid to get physical he weighs 170 pounds and is about as physical as any 170 pound WR ever.. lol.. step ya game up!!! oh and DESEAN IS 100% HEALTHY!!!! AND A CONSISTENT WR!!!

  • http://iKillRats.com/ Charlie Kelly

    Its all because desean is a small WR. If he was 2 inches taller 20 pounds heavier he would be god….. and that would be with the same exact stats!!!! Same exact career he has had up until now!! smfh

        It’s very rare when I deviate from my main source of Eagles news.

  • PaoliBulldog

    Trading D-Jax would create $6MM of dead cap. Can’t see Eagles doing that in exchange for a third round pick.

    • Nfl All Day

      Next offseason this pops up, I wont spend a second arguing against. It’ll be understandable in 2015. Not right now, as we sit perched atop the division, ready to absolutely lay waste to the entire league, save SEA, SF, & DEN. Is there any other team out there who concerns you?

      • GEAGLE

        F that! Seahawks,Niners and broncos can get it to!! Don’t fear anyone with king FOles

        • Nfl All Day

          He still has the archers aim with the hunchbacks feet. Hopefully all these weapons give him an out on every down and the rush wont have a chance to develope. That and the increased pace wearing MFers out, cuz I don’t wanna see my man scramblin to the left with Aldon Smith on the hunt foaming at the mouth.

          • GEAGLE

            Peters will own all pass rushers this year. Should be back to his dominant self in year two. I expect this years OL to outclass last years OL..and I don’t fear the Niners offense at all

          • Nfl All Day

            Big Lane living up to his name!

          • GEAGLE

            Wonder when we play them? Nice to play them early without Bowman..and they will have a rookie safety for us to pick on

          • Nfl All Day

            That sounds like a Sunday night in October. It’s out there, new stadium looks like the Linc a bit…….I got Em 12-4 with losses to SEA, SF, GB (revenge game of sorts), and AZ, which I’m sure raises a few eyebrows until you realize we are 2-7 in our last 9 trips to Tempe/Glendale. Not sure if that includes the title game. I tried to be realistic and keep my fandom in check.

    • Kev_H

      Isn’t it a net savings re: salary cap? Eat $6 million, save $10.5 million = save $4.5 million? Either way, I’d like to see him come back, but I don’t see him being here in 2015 and I don’t think it’s a disaster if he isn’t back.

  • Tikkit

    No one knows anything. Did Chip and DeSean text? Call? Email? DM? This is a media driven tired, tired, tired speculative bullshit vomit inducing shit show. Who can say if Chip and DJax didn’t get together and decide to play a joke on the media? I’m sick to death of this story and the idiots who give it legs.

    • JosephR2225

      Maybe it’s a motivational tool like in 2000 when Croce and Brown pretended to arrange a trade sending AI to the Clippers.

      • Tikkit

        I think people have this vision of DeSean staring pensively at his phone while an arrogant CK brushes past reporters and says “I have no time to call.” What era are we living in, the F-ing 50’s?

    • Nfl All Day

      “Idiots who give it legs”…….ultimately, thats us. Bunch of freaking junkies who spend all day crawling around the internet looking for the next hit.

      • Tikkit

        Not really. It’s Derrick Gunn who says the Eagles “would like a 3rd” and Ian Rapoport who reports on the NFL channel that the Eagles are “not shopping, but listening” and Mike Florio who just ran an article called “Chip Kelly has talked to DeSean Jackson, unless he hasn’t”.
        I’m unable to promulgate this stuff for public consumption. But those guys are, not to mention the local writers.

  • jakelrot

    Just realized while waiting for the home page to load that I was dreading a “Jackson traded” headline. Ugh, am not looking forward to that feeling for the couple months (I assume this won’t really die until after the draft).

  • birdsfanindc

    After extensive research, please allow me to summarize what we know for sure regarding the trade rumors involving DeSean Jackson:

    – .

    • Jerry Pomroy

      Thorough and in-depth…I like it.

  • G_WallyHunter

    twitters goin crazy, sometimes I sit on the search and look at refreshed tweets, fastest way to get news. on the “desean jackson” search page now

  • Eagles4Life

    So now Chip called him. Then he didn’t call him. No, it was DJacc that called and couldn’t reach him. Chip is too busy to talk.

    This clusterfuck is only being proliferated by the Eagles front office. They did Dawkins dirty when they wanted him out and it looks like we are approaching a similar situation with DeSean, which is even worse because the guy is in his damn prime.

    Super Bowl formula at its best.

    • Tikkit

      That’s crap though. The FO doesn’t have to respond publically to ANYONE. Their job is making the team better, not addressing every stupid rumor that circulates regarding a player. Remember how much the FO talked about Byrd? Right, they didn’t.

      • Eagles4Life

        They don’t have to respond to the public, that’s true. But on the same token, if you’re preaching chemistry, that doesn’t begin and end with the 53 man roster. That includes staff and coaches too.

        • Adam

          Not really. At the end of the day it’s a employer/employee relationship. I’m not sure the word chemistry is correct. You’re talking about clarity. This isn’t a 50/50 partnership here. DeSean Jackson is an employee of the Eagles organization and Chip/Howie are his boss. They aren’t on equal footings here. No matter how much we like to think of this as a team dynamic, it’s a business over all else.

          • Vet Linc

            Yup it’s employer/employee. Pretty simple.

            The media feeds it because fans want it.

          • Eagles4Life

            Yes, really. Chemistry is important with coaches as well. No one said anything about 50/50 partnership. Remember in 2011 when Reid lost the team? Chemistry.

          • Adam

            Not really getting your definition of chemistry here. Reid didn’t lose the team because of his “chemistry” with his players. The locker room chemistry wasn’t there. You can’t throw together high priced FA from different backgrounds and expect it to work. The team under performed and lost games.

            If DeSean put up career numbers in Chip’s offense last year, chemistry isn’t the problem. Clearly they can work together.

            Bottom line is that in a relationship like the one between DeSean and the Eagles, it isn’t the team that has to accommodate him, it’s vice versa.

            Would it be nice if they came out and squashed this stuff so we didn’t have to read about it? Sure. But it’s just not how they operate and not how they should operate. They should absolutely listen to any and every trade offer. It would look even worse if the Eagles came out and flat out denied everything about this then down the road trade him. They aren’t gonna rule anything out.

          • Eagles4Life

            Yeah, you really aren’t and I don’t know why. Have you played in organized athletics before? Coaches are the leaders of the team and they do indeed help in the overall team chemistry. I’m sure you’ve heard of players “playing for their coach” or a “player’s coach.” That comes from CHEMISTRY. That’s a word that’s been thrown a lot in this new era, as well as buy-in, etc. Even more so than that, communication. Everything about this runs counter to that and is hypocritical. So not only are we talking about this as a situation involving one player, but an example to show other players that what was already said might have just been lip service.

          • Adam

            I understand the word chemistry. I just don’t think you’re applying it correctly to this situation. As I said, DeSean had a career year under Chip last season. DeSean bought into the system and kept his head down and succeeded. That’s a big part of the chemistry equation too. It’s not just Chip having to accommodate DeSean and make sure he’s happy and he trusts him. If some of the reasons are correct as to why the Eagles are listening to trade offers, such as his off the field antics or contract issues, then that directly affects chemistry as well.

            Clarity and transparency is what you think the Eagles should have in this situation when it comes to their plans for DeSean. That’s just simply not going to happen. They’re not going to shoot themselves in the foot by saying we’re not listening to offers for DeSean then later down the road trade him. THAT would be lip service.That would be more damaging to their reputation then simply not saying anything at all.

        If your wife asks if you’re cheating on her do you tell her you love her, or have your secretary tell her that you’re too busy to take her calls.

        • Tikkit

          I’m not 100% sure that analogy works for football players and coaches. Also, the report that they’re not talking is conjecture. Chip hasn’t said much about any player this offseason but we all heard how great he was with communication. Why would this be different? Doesn’t seem like his style. At all.

        • Adam

          That’s really a different dynamic. Marriage and employment aren’t similar.

  • Rick H

    The “issue” could be resolved in the next 5 minutes by Roseman or Kelly or even Lurie. The “issue” is now a “problem” that the Eagles will not address. Therefore I believe it is a strong possibility that trading Jackson is real and has legs.
    The Eagles front office does not like to have this kind of thing going on! I like Jackson as a player but it is a business and he is making A LOT of $$$.

  • ryyndynyyls

    After calming down about this today I thought of something else fairly obvious. If this were real, which I’m now fairly certain it’s not, wouldn’t all of this talk spiked prior to Free Agency? Doesn’t make a lot of sense to try to trade a high-cost Pro Bowler after the vast majority of the NFL has just emptied its bank account… At this point we have the 9th or 10th most money below cap. Pretty sure we can all breathe easily and just shake our heads about this becoming an issue when it really didn’t need to. Curse the FO, but also be psyched to still have all of the necessary pieces of what’s developing into the best offense in the NFL.

        Thanks Ronald.

  • GEAGLE

    Anyone know off the top of the top of their dome how long Justin Ellis arms are?
    If the kid has decent arm length and good Charecter, wouldn’t be surprised if he is a top option to back up Logan at NT,,,330lb but nimble and can get after it like Logan. Some think he athletic enough to easily play DE for you as well. That’s impressive for a 330lb man

    Wake Forrest has a NT named Nikita Whitlock who bench pressed like 45reps the other day and he is only 5’11 265lbs lol. PLEASE WATCH HIS highlights!!! He will never be picked higher then round 7, but this kid is a friggin BEAST! It’s scary. He is nasty, small, but strong as all hell!!

    Starting to look for late round NT
    ..
    Also been watching Oregon defense, and Taylor hart is a soooo much better player then I thought he was. Earl Mitchell is even better then I thought..get him in round 5 and he is a steal…

    But I would LOVE to see us take a late round flier on Lokombo strictly as a cover linebacker in subpackages. Kid can really move and play in space…

    • Vet Linc

      I don’t know what is more disappointing:

      The fact we don’t have 489 draft picks to select all the sleepers you breakdown and study “highlight” film of; or,

      The fact you’re not in the actual Eagles’ war room making decisions.

    • RIP illa

      Now you’re starting to get it. Been trying to tell you for months. Anyway, 31 32, off the top of my head. Not long at all. He also has to learn and/or strengthen his base, but he’s not that far off. Also sometimes comes up way too high, which is funny for a dude his he height. He should have leverage advantage all the time, but can get turned when he’s doubled because of the things I mentioned. Yet when he does everything right, no double team can get a push on him. Kid anchors his ass off on these occasions. Plus the athleticism that you mentioned and how he kills blockers.

      • GEAGLE

        Dude..watch the 5’11 265lb Incredible Hulk NT at wake Forrest. patriots actually took a tiny NT in the 7th last year and he made the team and saw game action…Whitlock is mean as all hell and I can’t believe how damn tough and powerful he plays at that size,

        Yeah been mostly watching the OLBs and Safeties til now. Didn’t want to start too early cuz I got bored last year..

        Another kid I don’t know why the F we never talk about, Christian kirksey from Iowa,..I don’t even care about missing out on Christian Jones, the things we can do coverage wise with this kid in subpackages is amazing. Never seen a LB lined up over a slot WR so damn often, just bullying these WRs..he basically played in space at all times….between round 3-4 is our Backup LB round. May have to trade up between our two draft picks or back, but we have to secure Telvin,C. jones, or kirksey…..but I would still want Lokombo late.
        ..
        Had no idea Taylor hart was so good.
        .,
        Hope we give Ellis a look, remind me a lot of star Latululei surprisingly

        • RIP illa

          I’ll check him out. What does he run though? At that size you would think LB. Heard of Kirskey or whatever but haven’t really checked him out, so now I will. And yes Hart is just that damn good. But I can never find a way to get him on our squad when I go over draft scenarios in my head. But we do need DLs since we’ve done nothing in FA.

          • GEAGLE

            I’m not suggesting we draft the kid from WF..just worth watching his HL tape, it’s crazy to see a tiny NT, just friggin manhandle dudes. He benched like 45 friggin reps which is just crazy…someone will prob take a flier on him because the patriots paved the way for him, but who knows if he can make a roster…just crazy to see how violent he is all undersized,…reminds me of the angry dwarf from Amish mafia

          • RIP illa

            No I was talking about Hart when I mentioned the draft scenarios.

          • GEAGLE

            Oh…not sure I was just watching game footage and writing down notes..then I’ll go back and check the guys stats and measurements who I liked on film and that’s how I start narrowing things down..he was playing like every position 4-3DE, 3-4DE, 3-4OLB (surprisingly looked functional dropping into coverage(didn’t do much of it, but if you wanted him to play ROLB, he can drop in zone just fine, better then Cole for sure…but I assume we would use him as Kruger at DE..Kruger is the reason I always kind of dismissed him. Feels like a redundant pick and we don’t even know what we have with Krugs yet…basically he looks like what Kruger probably would have looked like if he stayed in school…check out Kirksey for sure..I could see Billy loving the things he can do for us in subpackages

          • RIP illa

            Same. Always put him in the DE column over OLB.

          • GEAGLE

            Can’t wait to go back and look at Kirksey measurements and time and see how the compared to Telvin, and jones..I’m assuming very similar, but a ton more tape to watch him doing crazy things in coverage and playing in space because they had him do so much of it..Pete Carroll probably going to love him…

      • GEAGLE

        Couldn’t take more Desean drama, so figured I’d dive into the draft

        • RIP illa

          Yeah I’ve been wanting to do a “pick 6″ game on here to see where everybody was at on prospects, based off of players we have interviewed so far. But this damn DJax madness has been killing everything!

      Dammit I missed it. You got any examples?

      • GEAGLE

        They started talking about the importance of bloodlines..talking prospects like Carr and Jake Mathews…and baldi started the onslaught…basically everyone talked about the upside to bloodlines, and used Casey Mathews as the example for why they don’t tell the story. The started talking about the Mathews family, and you hear “well you might want to keep Casey off that list lol ” ugly duckling, black sheep of the family, never turned into a swan, but he plays about as tough as one

            First your talking about taking kids down your basement to see Santa. Now school girls?? Hmm, I dunno… ;-)

    I was just searching “desean jackson” on twitter and saw this gem was just posted:

    I particularly like how he rhymes “do it” with “do it” three times.

      Did April Fool’s Day come early this year? If not then none of this makes any sense …

    Go Noles!

    So long ago… The media created a fire storm about whether eagles wanted to get rid of Foles because they refused to confirm that Foles was their QB.

    Eagles say nothing. DeSean is on contract. No move has changed that. DeSean is an eagle there is nothing to confirm or deny. Move on.

    If we. Are going to do the Howie swoop and steal Carrington it has to happen now. He is visiting Cleveland where his former DC is the Coach….do the NNamdi swoop and steal this mofo

    A source close to Desean just confirmed the Philly media (except for Tim and Sheil) is full of $#it

    • EaglesFanInPhx

      a newer report recants the report that the philly media is full of it.

  • Chris Jones

    I like desean he’s a clown but he’s got a good heart I believe. He’s definently maturing I don’t even understand the logic of trading him? By ridding yourself of him you weaken the entire offense and even our punt return game. It just makes no sense and I hope it’s all bullshit.

    What number would Vick be with the J-E-T-S Jets, Jets, Jets? No way Geno gives up 7.

    WASH just had another trademark application declined by the government. Their latest attempt the “Washington Redskins Potatoes”, was the second to be declined. The previous “Washington Redskins Hog Rinds” was also declined. Due to the nature of the derogatory term “Redskin” being the issue and the fact that even after warning the team about the use of the term, and then submitted another trademark application containing the word after receiving the initial warning, the government’s trademark commission is deciding on whether to pull the organization’s trademark patent rights. This would allow anyone to utilize the namesake and profit without having to compensate the team and essentially dilute their merchandise.

    Really??…Dan Snyder is just an effing idiot.

    Jets have the third most cap space I think. They could grab Vick and his favorite target Desean. DJ wants guaranteed money not the big paycheck. I would assume he would be willing to restructure plus he has the NY exposure and Vick as his QB. Looks like a win win

  • myeaglescantwin

    this whole contract issue is the FO’s problem.
    they knew this would cause issue when the guaranteed money expired.

    when you are 165lbs,,, that is a must.
