Jackson To Visit Redskins

USATSI_7426375_168380503_lowres
DeSean Jackson
will be in Washington Monday to visit with the Redskins, a source confirmed.

There does not appear to be any other scheduled visits at this time.

Asked about the chances of Jackson signing in Washington, a source close to Jackson offered: “I don’t think they are bringing him in to kick the tires.”


Looks like there is a real chance that the receiver ends up staying in the NFC East. By releasing Jackson, the Eagles forfeited any control they had over where the three-time Pro Bowler plays next season. Now they may be facing him twice a year.

“Huge, huge, man,” Washington cornerback DeAngelo Hall said Saturday night, according to CSNWashington.com.  “If we could add a piece like that. . . .  He’s a threat whenever the ball is in hands.

“I feel like our locker room has a good group of young guys, a good group of old guys, man. Some of the things he’s been going through lately, that’s life.  That’s life.  We’ve all been through something, so . . . if he’s able to come here, man, I’m going to take him under my wing and just try to put him on the right path.”

  • Septhinox

    I kinda hope does go to Washington. I’d like to see him shut down by Boykin. Lol

    • anon

      That’s funny

      • Dante Inked UP Lovings

        Boykin not fast enough they need someone fast and big at cb like DRC shut him down in the Denver game and Patrick Peterson shuts him down the eagles would need someone with similar skill set like this guys tho boykin is a good cover slot guy

        • G_WallyHunter

          I’d bet 100 bucks Boykin could shut down desean, he is fast enough, was one of the best punt gunners in the game last year, you need speed to do that

          • http://abigbuttandasmile.com/ A Big Butt and a Smile

            And who would shut down Garcon, Robisnson, Morris or Reed. You’re not stacking the box with DeSean in the lineup.

            You also have to account for RG-3 – the numbers would def be on their side. Just comical.

          • G_WallyHunter

            I’m just referring to Boykin against Desean, that was who was in question. And who knows what they’ll have by then and who knows how the D scheme will look now with Carroll thrown into it and Jenkins QBing the backend

          • http://abigbuttandasmile.com/ A Big Butt and a Smile

            My point was it doesn’t matter if Boykin shuts down DeSean. Big whoop if we can’t stop the rest.

          • Richard Colton

            Pierre Garcon? That’s who’s scaring you. We’ll be OK. RGIII is a fraud. The day DeSean signs there, they’ll have exactly one player I’m worried about – DeSean.
            Don’t worry. We’ll be fine vs. the Redskins. Not having DeSean’s production and explosiveness worries me.

          • http://abigbuttandasmile.com/ A Big Butt and a Smile

            No I’m not worried about Pierre Garcon. I’m worried about Pierre Garcon, Morris, RG-3 (who is def not a fraud), Reed, Robinson and Jackson.

            Eagles fans need to stop drinking the kool-aid believing the rest of the NFC Least is going to stay that way. Without DeSean that was still a pretty good offense. With DeSean they likely become a headache.

            With that said their Oline is still an issue and still don’t know if their defense can stop a paper bag. But let’s not act like they are guaranteed to be historically bad this year.

    • Coatesvillain

      If only Boykin would get a shot at being a starting CB. Apparently being the team’s best CB isn’t enough.

  • ohitsdom

    DeAngelo Hall, mentor?! Oh boy.

  • Neanderthal

    Rofl @ thought of DHall taking DJax under his wing. Blind leading the blind

    • GEAGLE

      Bwahaha I would love to see that. Please sign with the skins

  • GEAGLE

    Out of curiosity, when do we get to move on from this?

    • hillbillybirdsfan

      Probably not until something else happens, unfortunately. If he signs with the ‘skins… maybe never. We can always boycott and cook up some draft chatter in the comments though!

      • GEAGLE

        You can’t post 37 stories about Desean in a row when you have nothing to report. Desean was cut, Desean is visiting the skins…that’s two threads that should have been made about Desean…how the hell does no info get turned into 37 Desean threads in a row?

        • Eagles_Fan_in_San_Fran

          Well on BGN they have the original Jaccpot thread with over 1700 comments on it – nearly swamped my computer when it went to load them all.

          • Joe from Easton

            Buy a new computer.

            Lol, just joshin’.

      • GEAGLE

        I have taken matters into my own hands. Just snitched on Dorenbos from throwing up Amishafia gang signs after PATs

        • hillbillybirdsfan

          Wait until they find out he’s been smuggling quilts across state lines…

          • GEAGLE

            Lol I’m snitching

    • MediaMike

      NEVER!

    • Johnny Domino

      Hoist a Lombardi and all is right with the world.

      • MediaMike

        Exactly. Nobody has earned the benefit of the doubt.

    • Coatesvillain

      It’s either Desean Jackson or more posts with Chip lying about how great Malcolm Jenkins is.

      I wish focus could go back to the draft. But this really is the lull period right now.

      • GEAGLE

        Sure you were talking about what a crappy signing Barwin was 365 days ago,….you will be praising Jenkins a year from now…bet that

        • Coatesvillain

          I was actually pretty high on the Connor Barwin signing. So… no.

    • Andy124

      Don’t know. Sometimes it feels like “we” haven’t even moved on from TO vs. McNabb yet. This could linger.

      • R

        We moved on long ago. D JAX is no where near the player TO was. Nobody talking about how he is invisible in red zone and any team that could put a safety over the top. We still have the meadowlands miracle 2 memory. That’s all I need from 10, let him go he won’t hurt us. Seen this movie before

      • Eagles_Fan_in_San_Fran

        Nah, TO vs McNabb is old news. Now, on the other hand, Vick versus Kolb…

    • Zepi

      When real answers come forward instead of speculations and/or a stellar season, but even if both those things happen there’s a possibility of murmurs that linger.

      • GEAGLE

        What real answer do you want? It’s plane as day….eagles NEVER Said a word about his criminal connections,..you letting the media gas you up….now sure eagles used the report as an opportunity to do what they wanted to do anyway. But don’t hold your breathe waiting for a smoking gun because it doesn’t exist…it’s simple, Desean is limited, great WR but not elite. If we are going to pay someone elite money and deal with his limitations he better be the best team mate since Avant,…his limitations plus Charecter don’t warrant being paid 30mil for these next 3 years….Don’t think it’s a coincidence that the moment he was done praising Desean he gave his definition of what an elite WR is..SIZE and SPEED combo, thus by definition Chip doesn’t view him as elite, and not worth the headache….I’m sure if Desean wanted to re work his deal for LESS money, he would be an eagle today!!

        • Kev_H

          Apparently every other team agrees with that assessment or he would have been traded for a draft pick.

          • GreenScabs

            EXACTLY! If this was just all about DeSean being paid too much for the skill set he brings the Eagles would have had NO PROBLEM trading him to another team! Instead they cut him because they didn’t want to take advantage of another teams lack of knowledge on whatever is going on with him. The fact that they didn’t trade him for even the smallest return is the biggest smoking gun out there to this point. Even if you didn’t get the offers you wanted, you would wait until after the draft to trade him when there are teams who didn’t address the position good enough in the draft

            It would be completely irresponsible for this franchise to just let him walk and get nothing in return, and this franchise has fleeced opposing teams in the trade department in the past. Something has taken place……..

        • Zepi

          I think you miss understood me. I’m talking about the kind of answers that will dispel the speculations flying around from the media and the fans.

  • Andy

    Knife–>heart.

  • Robert Baer

    A better RGIII with a Jaccpot may give some teams fits. It might even make the NFC East “better.” Perhaps it would even steal the limelight (that same focus people give to pileups on the freeway when they drive past) from the Cowboys. Either way, if we face Jaccpot, I’d say to get physical with him at the LOS and get into his head, but have our guys maintain their cool. Provoke him a little bit, put some frustration in his mind, and see what happens. :D

    • RIP illa

      Are you forgetting what a provoked DJax looks like? Just think back to the 1st play of the skins game 2010. Or how he whooped Cary and the Ravens asses all game long 2012. I really believe that there is not a single DB on our team that can guard him one on one. He has always abused all in camps. It would have to be a team and scheme effort. Sure get physical with him, as much as they want or need to. But don’t provoke him.

      • Kev_H

        How did the provoked Jackson play for 60 minutes that game?

        • RIP illa

          Which game??? Listen I know I shouldn’t feed trolls…and that’s what exactly you have shown yourself to be on all things DJax related with your blatant hate. No need to respond. I’ll finally start taking Geagle’s advice and minimize.

          • Kev_H

            11-15-2010, TD first play 59:30 seconds of nothing.

    • Fryer

      I would wanna see Barwin give DJax the Jimmy Graham in the Saints game treatment. Drop the little guy a few times then let Cary talk shit to him.

  • Glenn

    I am sure that DeSean Jackson will have a very good year, whether it’s with the Redskins, Raiders, Jets, or Chiefs. He has been humbled by this experience. He will play with a chip on his shoulder, with something to prove. I personally believe that the Eagles would have been better off trying to make this work here, and only weakened their team this year. The Eagles had a golden opportunity to win this year, and only made it more difficult by giving up one of their assets for nothing.

    • James Skip Carl

      Desean is an idiot, he is one of those people who never look at themselves. He’ll always have an excuse. It just makes me mad that I have to get my woman another Jersey

      • Eagles1018

        I for one wish him the best as a person. I’m trying my best to look beyond the eagles for a second and think about the man. Sometimes in life you need that change of scenery to humble you. At the same time I’m trying to look at our FO and consider they probably tried everything they could over this time to make it work. Maybe Coach Kelly had the backbone that Reid or Howie didn’t. I’m gonna keep a positive attitude about it and hope it’s for the best concerning my favorite team and the player. Michael Vick was given a second chance by us. No way he goes back to the Falcons after all he went through. He wouldn’t have learned anything. Yes it would be a challenge if he played for the redskins. But guess what? He’s been eliminated from games before it’s all about planning. Someone on a different thread discussed the fact that the Saints basically kept him out of the playoff game with one guy. We may not have that guy on the team right now but we have coaches that have seen him in practice and know what he’s capable of…know his tendencies etc. They can scheme for him. But honestly beyond the football aspect of this situation I hope he can take his situation and really make a positive out of it. Whatever trouble he may be in I hope it doesn’t ruin him. Because trust me, the Eagles organization is not ruined from this. And us fans will continue to cheer for them and buy tickets and jerseys and discuss them on these comment boards. Life goes on.

        • James Skip Carl

          He’s dead to me, I hope he signs for a billion dollars and never catches another touchdown

    • Kev_H

      I heard him on the radio lobbying for a raise. Humility didn’t really come across.

  • Tom w

    This story has been out since yesterday … Why pull a Jeff mclane and act like you are breaking the story when you just reading it on rotoworld or florio site. Just list the paper

  • MediaMike

    What makes a Skins signing of Jackson tricky is Garcon’s contract. Jackson is a vastly superior player to Garcon, so why would he take less money per year than Garcon to play with the Skins. I think teams with more cap space are going to be at the ultimate top of Jackson’s list.

    • MediaMike

      http://www.spotrac.com/cap-tracker/nfl/
      Skins only have $6.5 of room this year. They’d need to write a contract with a huge bonus to sign Jackson at $8 mil / year +. The Raiders have $15 + mil this year and don’t have a ton of long term commitments.

      • juaniflaco

        i don’t know how they can be in contention, no matter how much they want to sign him. and if they did they would have to cut other players that they want to keep. makes no sense.

    • scarolina1

      MM, The Skins can exceed the cap to sign DJ if they want him that badly, then they risk a penalty by the Commissioner to be imposed such as: If a team goes over the salary cap, it must forfeit a contract or restructure contracts to assure the player is under the salary cap.For teams that do not abide by the salary cap, not only will they be forced to forfeit the contracts of some players, but also to forfeit games. The NFL Commissioner has the final say in the punishment. It is highly unlikely that the Skins or any other team would sacrifice this to get DJ but if they really wanted him it can be done. Just a thought???

    • http://abigbuttandasmile.com/ A Big Butt and a Smile

      They’ll do what the Saints did with Byrd. Structure the contract so the cap hit this year is minimal. Also by all accounts – Snyder is willing to open the pocket book for DeSean.

      Rumor had it: 10 teams were interested | 3 were pursuing aggressively | 1 wanted him desperately.

      Everyone thought the one was the Raiders, looks like ti might be the Skins.

  • MediaMike

    And to get the Eagles back to par for next season without Jackson:
    10 wins
    The Maclin / Ertz / Sproles group needs to exceed the Jackson / Avant / Ertz 156 catches – 2248 yards – 15 TDs
    Foles needs to exceed the projected (16 starts based on the 11 full-ish games he played) 2013 Foles numbers of 4133 yards – 119 rating – 38 TDs – 64% completions
    The team needs to exceed the 417 yards and 27+ points per game
    The Eagles have set the bar quite high for attempting to replace their production w/o Jackson on the team.
    I’m pessimistic they’ll do it, but will be pleasantly surprised if they do.

    • Coatesvillain

      I don’t think we should look at it as stats that need to be replaced. Every year is different. It’s more about replacing what he brought to the offense itself.

      • MediaMike

        That’s a lot harder. BY FAR.

        • Coatesvillain

          Agreed.

          There are examples like how the Patriots still haven’t replaced Moss’ vertical ability. They have been an extremely productive offense (and successful team) but they miss that element even though it was the right decision to move on from him.

    • Brian

      There’s only one stat that matters… Wins.

  • mrparabolic

    DJax is upset at RG3 for throwing to Garçon when DJax was open deep. Who wins the sideline rap battle?

    • MediaMike

      Jackson. He’s the best rapper and would be the best player on that roster as well.

      • mrparabolic

        I’m sorry, but the answer we were looking for was “the other team.”

        Please accept these neck diamonds as a consolation prize.

        • MediaMike

          That isn’t a fair question because we’re talking about RG3&10.

      • Myke Lowery

    • Kev_H

      Those two guys are a bad mix-diametrically opposed cultural backgrounds while being high maintenance and self focused. Griffin would get on Jackson pretty hard if he dogged it in practices or meetings.

  • MediaMike

    I still don’t like losing Jackson, but I’ve made the best of it.

        • Richard Colton

          Yeah. Because they play different positions. I see ATAT as an edge rusher. If you draft KVN as a ROLB, you’re going to be disappointed with his pass rush. I think he’s a LOLB/ILB moving forward.

      • Hiral(GM)

        Another pundit thinking we are taking a WR in the first round. Guys we don’t need a WR that bad. We need DT and backfield help. Was I the only one watching the games this year. A good DLine can compensate for an average at best backfield. So if the DBs are gone then we are taking Hageman, nix, etc. and no no no LB… Smh football101

        • Will

          6 of the 11 picks went for DL and backfield help…

    • Tom w

      That’s sites trade are beyond unrealistic and way way off the trade chart. Ruins the entire thing. Only way to do it properly is no trades until they fix the disparity

    • Hiral(GM)

      Your draft picks are just as bad as your blogs. Why don’t you go troll somewhere else. Chip Kelly and howie know this draft is loaded with WR so why would they take one in the 1st round. (Hence they let DeSean go). Again they aren’t taking a WR in the first round and for you to want that really says alot about your football IQ. We are taking a DT, CB or SS in the first round. And please refer back to this posting come may 8th. Smh

  • Adam G

    It’s a shame they dropped out because I feel like the CC Chiefs would’ve been the best spot for DJax.

  • Sum

    I don’t buy the notion that he goes somewhere and lights it up or replicates the success he had with us this past season. Remember that prior to this he was largely a nonfactor for two seasons. In this case I don’t feel it’s necessary system over player per se… But I think the eagles will be largely unaffected, and DeSean will regress significantly.

    • anon

      He doesn’t need to be a top 5 wr if he has big games against us, if he runs back a td our burns our dbs it’s going to sting.

      • Kev_H

    • TNA

      I would to love to hear Chip talking to guys coming on board the Chip express. Given how every single player has been on point with the singular focus that winning is everything, I feel like these guys really are good fits and haven’t really had the need to “buy” into the system of competing, being multiple to whatever extent it helps the team win and breathing the win together mantra. The alignment of personal and team goals of every single FA/new piece so far has been excellent.
      Sanchez’s comment on how he’s going to do nothing but learn reflects what every other player brought on board has said in addition to doing everything and anything to win as a team. While it’s true that he may literally be doing nothing but learning behind Foles, he is self aware enough that this is a good fit for him.
      Of course, as CK has said, we won’t know how all the pieces fit together until they get on the field and start running around, but mentally, they all seem to be singing from the same page, same verse, same line. And that’s a good start.

  • Javi Echie

    Rotoworld just posted that the chiefs have no more interest in desean because they did a background check and didn’t like what they found. You know it’s bad when Big Red won’t even take a chance on him especially when he has a dire need for a receiver, that’s saying a lot.

    • http://abigbuttandasmile.com/ A Big Butt and a Smile

      Teams have been checking out DeSean for WEEKS. Since the trade rumors surfaced. THEN when KC supposedly dropped out Ian Rapport goes “Oh they did their due dilligence and said no.”

      The truth of the matter is more like the recent due diligence had to do with what it would cost to get him there, the likelihood of him coming there and the bidding war that could ensue. Reid is there, they know what is in his background, and they didn’t just start looking into him.

      You think Skins haven’t been looking into dude? Raiders admitted they’ve been checking him out for weeks. Woody Johnson made it clear DeSean was on his radar. So yeah, KC’s reticence is dollars and cents at this point.

      • Andy124

        I think they dropped out of the running when he asked them to spell Kansas City with two Cs.

        I agree with you here. Every team that doesn’t sign Jaccson, I’m seeing people say it’s evidence that they don’t want him. You can only play for 1 team at a time. That doesn’t mean that none of the other teams would be happy to have you.

        • Eagles_Fan_in_San_Fran

          I see what you did there.

      • Kev_H

        I read earlier and Howard Eskin indicated yesterday on NFL Radio that Reid had no interest in Jackson. I think Segal’s been doing what he can to drum up a market and Reid said the obligatory nice things in Orlando, so lazy writers ran with it. But Jackson played a huge role in Reid’s demise in Philly. He’s not going down that road again.

  • Joe Thomas

    A dysfunctional player going to a dysfunctional organization would be entertaining, but i dont think it happens.
    Chip gonna draft someone like Jordan Matthews and turn him into a player. Our offense dare I say, may be better than last year. DeSean got shut out of too many games, and I think Chip realized that, and considering we probably have to go through Seattle, he knows he needs some big people to combat the big people.

  • tbwhite

    I heard the problem in Philly was that Chip wouldn’t change the spelling of his last to Celly, I mean how can DeSean work for someone whose initials are CK ?

      His last name is spelled jack…

    A man wished to purchase an Ass and decided to give the
    animal a test before buying him. He took the Ass home and put him in
    the field with his other Asses.

    The new Ass strayed from the others to join the one that was the laziest and the biggest eater of them all.

    Seeing
    this, the man led him back to his owner. When the owner asked how he
    could have tested the Ass in such a short time, the man answered, “I
    didn’t even need to see how he worked. I knew he would be just like the
    one he chose to be his friend.”

  • Tom w

    How about a realistic mock draft range for the eagles post djax without overvalued unrealistic trades and pkayers dropping fifty picks too much.

    22) cooks or lee or ford
    54) Dev Adams or Marcus smith or attaboy or Murphy or van noy
    3) moncrief or Robinson or McGill or dozier
    4) wv d end, Landry, tmitchelll or dion bailey or Christian jones or barrow or Herron
    5) dontae Johnson, latimer, halippio, Hubbard, powell, dri archer, Brett urban
    7) colt, dat, Colvin, liberty corner, Montana olb, boseko, hart

    • EaglesFanInPhx

      id rather have odb over lee or cooks but yeah looks good

      • Tom W

        Odb won’t get to 20

        • EaglesFanInPhx

          i definitely think he has a legit shot. Many analysts put him as 4th-5th best WR

          • Tom w

            More like third and gone by 18 when jets pick. After combine and proday he has passed everyone but Watkins and Evans. Even 4th he probably doesn’t make it to us. Wishful thinking I just doubt it looking at rankings and private visits

    • Hiral(GM)

      If this is your mock rough draft then you should definitely go back and watch some eagles game. Listen let me help you out and the rest of your pundits. You don’t draft a LB in the first round they take too long to develop and need a couple of years. Von millers aren’t falling off trees. That’s why you get them in rounds 3-7 troll. If I’m lying then please refer to dion Jordan. But seeing your football IQ you would probably trade a first round pick for his (bust) production. For the last time the Eagles are drafting defense in the first round. Pyor, ha ha, fuller, Hageman, nix… No WR and dag sure no LB or DE.. Geeeezzz you sure your am eagle fan or did you just start liking them this year?

      • Tom w

        You are so dead wrong it’s not even funny…. Four chances and you blew them all …. No chance in hell they go safety or corner in the first round …. We actually like our corners and Jenkins and think a lot of Wolfe. …. And hageman is going on 24. Eagles draft players not postions dope …. This isn’t fantasy football …. Why don’t you and Mel kiper go sit in the corner and play trolls r us and leave the eagles draft to people who actually follow the eagles and aren’t just trolling for rascist comments

  • James Brown

    White WR threatens to “fight every N—-R in here” = new contract

    Black WR (best on the team) with unsavory friends (we all have a few) despite no criminal record = RELEASED

    • G_WallyHunter

      Good post, I guess Chip Kelly must be a racist..
      What’s next? Signing Jim Leonhard out of retirement? or trading for Harrison Smith from minny?

      • James Brown

        How can you threaten to “fight every N—-R in here” and get a raise while Jackson gets released because of supposed “friends”?

        You saying that this doesn’t look bad?

        • G_WallyHunter

          I’m saying we really don’t know much information, so assuming that the release is just because of his friends might make an ass out of u and me.
          Looks bad with the whole Riley thing, but he obviously redeemed himself, and who knows maybe the locker room’s actually accepted him back a little bit (save for Sconces), he obviously did everything asked of him last year, did a lot more blocking anyways.
          We don’t know everything about the Desean stuff, and we won’t, this organization is too good at keeping things quiet and maintaining their standards of not bad-mouthing past employees.
          you’re just trying to compare it when we don’t know enough, I agree though, it looks bad to outsiders and people who don’t follow as closely..

          • James Brown

            They already bad mouthed him when they pretty much said he’s affiliated with gangs….which leads to the average person that does not know who he is, and sees his color and his persona, and they will call him a gang member..which indeed smears his reputation.

            They did alot without saying much, which they are pros at doing.

          • borntosuffer

            Well, what we do know is that he has pictures with known gang members and has been seen flashing gang signs and has not shown any remorse for any of it. That’s different than making a mistake, accepting that it was made and doing something to make it right to make it right as have Vick and Cooper. But, there’s a lot of unknowns here and lots of ways to assume those unknowns actually played out. Nobody wins in this case.

          • James Brown

            I would say Cooper won and Jackson lost…

            Maybe I should go down to my job and threaten to “fight every N—-R in here”and maybe I can get a raise lol

          • Andy124

            Trolls. Don’t feed ‘em.

          • G_WallyHunter

            Damnit, thanks for pointing that out, I’m done

          • James Brown

            When someone speaks the truth they’re a troll lol. Truth hurts

          • Hiral(GM)

            James don’t worry about these trolls on here. They were the same people who thought Kevin Klob was the 2nd coming of Joe Montana. It’s about 8 of them so just don’t even pay them any attention. They have very little football knowledge and definitely not an in depth understanding of Eagle history. Hence they became eagle fans about 5 years ago. Probably former cowboy and raider fans.

          • Hiral(GM)

            And we have video of Riley being a blatant racist. Let me guess Riley just used that word for the first time that night at the concert. Can you trolls do everyone a favor and please give this website a break so we can have intellectual conversation about football. Thanks

          • G_WallyHunter

            The team never said anything about gangs lol that was the news

          • James Brown

            You’re right, which is my point in an earlier post. He is a gang member now to the public thanks to the Eagles. They’re not dumb.

            Give the media a crumb and they make a meal out of it.

            DeSean Jackson = Crip now

            Thanks to the Eagles

          • G_WallyHunter

            I never saw the Eagles FO as a source for any of those, just the LAPD and other sources nj.com had.
            I’d think his instagram and twitter help with showing who he really hangs out with, Eagles never said he was in a gang, they simply released him, all we really know

          • James Brown

            Cmon man lol. You can toe the company line if you want.

          • G_WallyHunter

            just sayin, if it was so obviously the Eagles FO that leaked that info then why wouldn’t we see it anywhere. Know what you mean though, it’s possible, I’m not assuming anything because we don’t have the information lol. Pretty simple, can’t really say what’s going on because no one knows other than he is released and he likes to throw up gang signs and make some of the crappiest hip hop I’ve ever heard

          • James Brown

            G_WallyHunter you’re fair on here. Pretty cool and totally see your points

          • Tom W

            Eagles had nothing to do w the gang article dope. Planning on moving on from him over a month ago and tried to trade him last year. Gang shit was unrelated and just killed the trade market. Forget to mention he was suspended in college for being a diva, dropped to second rd of draft, sued for a half mil by his agent, broke, suspended by Reid, sulked for a year and dogged it before he got a contract, fight w wr coach, won’t speak w wr coach, missed positional meetings, blew off exit interview, asked for a new contract day eagles lost playoff game, not one teammate stuck up for him after he was cut …… Gang shit is a red herring utilized by media and rascist dopes to fan the flames …. Trolls like you think it’s funny …. Go jump off a bridge and get a life

          • Hiral (GM)

            Only dope on here is you clown. Why don’t you go play I’m traffic with a cowboy jersey on. Sheil and Tim should start doing checks before they let trolls like you post comments. It’s a shame that your football knowledge is slighter better than your knowledge about life. And that isn’t saying much. Can we please get back to football topics and how must of you trolls keep pushing for a WR In the first round when we clearly aren’t. Howie and chip already stated that this draft is loaded with WRs. Meaning that they aren’t taking one in the first round. So instead of trolling on this wonderful site why don’t you catch up on your football IQ

          • Tom w

            Another troll. Too funny. See what the smell of racially charged issues does to a chat board. … Gonna be a mess in here for days or atleast until we stop w the djax nonsense And we were going wr heavy in this draft w or without djax.

            And thanks for making no contribution. I was like the fifth person who spotted the troll dope.

          • Hiral (GM)

            Tom not sure what your definition of a troll is but for someone like yourself to bash the best WR the Eagles ever had then I think you fall into that category. With a loaded WR draft and you keep calling for a WR in the first round than I think you fall into that category. Again lets do a mock draft challenge since you have such a fantastic IQ about Eagle football

    • Will

      2 known associates of The LA Gang “THE CRIPS” who were charged in murders is who DeSean is hanging out with in his spare time this is a very serious character and social issue ….A LA Hernandez of New England Patriots changed the landscape of how this is viewed….Cooper being drunk and cussing at a concert….pales in comparison…

      • James Brown

        Did he get in trouble? Yes or no.

        Does he have a criminal record?

        Was Jackson a diruption in the locker room. Nope.

        Did they try to help Jackson? Nope. Did the send Cooper to therapy and give him a raise? Yes.

        End of story

        • James Skip Carl

          Cheer for whatever team signs the idiot

        • Maggie

          You seem to have forgotten that his old buddy/coach Andy Reid doesn’t want him now either. Surely if you try really hard you can come up with some idiotic racist reason for that? Get over yourself. You are stating that Cooper got a new contract BECAUSE he used a racial epithet. Rubbish. Everybody gets insulted or put down in life. sometimes for skin color, sometimes for gender, sometimes just because someone else is an a***ole. Again, get over yourself and try thinking instead. Whiners are so boring.

    • kyle wilson

      Come on James, are you suggesting that race ever enters into perceptions and decisions? And if by chance, it ever does…..surely, the Eagles would never be guilty of such a vile and offensive act. Every decision they make is grounded in sound business practices and what’s best for the team.

      Right?

      • James Brown

        “fight every N—-R in here” = new contract……

        • kyle wilson

          That and 47 catches…..I mean, come on man….the guy had 47 catches!!!!! Would have been more but Vick was the QB for 5 games or so….woulda probably had at least 55 if Nick had been the starter all yr…..

        • Tom W

          Troll. Go kill yourself

          • Hiral (GM)

            Tom I challenge you to a mock draft for the Eagles. You pick your players 1-7 rounds and ill pick mine. And we can do one alternate for each round. So for instance I think the eagles will take Pryor FS or Fuller CB in the first round. So we will do 7rounds for the Eagles. And the loser has to stop commenting on this website until football season starts. I hope you accept my challenge because I don’t want to see your troll comments posted here anymore.

          • Guest

            Hahahahahahahaha you think they will take Pryor and you are taking Down to people? Classic you just disgraced yourself. Anyone who knows how the eagles use their safeties and know Pryors game knows that the eagles won’t even consider him. Only the most clueless fanboys mock Pryor to the eagles smh Pathetic. Run along boy, u just disgraced yourself for those who really know this team Hahahaha all that shit you talked to people and then you list Calvin Pryor hahahahaha classic. U def get an instant induction into the troll fanboy hall of fame. Instant classic. Thank you for the much needed comic relief. Now run along and don’t make me own you! I don’t even have to post under my name and people will know who I am.. Lol silly boy

          • Hiral GM

            Actually I said HA HA was first option. And yes I think they would stretch for Pyror before they pick roby. My picks would be HA HA, fuller, then Pyror or Hageman, Nix. So please excuse yourself and make like a tree an split. (Marty Mcfly)

          • GEAGLE

            You are pretty clueless.. Shut your mouth, sit out, and maybe I’ll teach you a few things. Pryor won’t even be on the eagles draft board smh

          • oreofestar

            damn Geags

          • GEAGLE

            If I have to watch baby Dutch talk ish to people for no reason, he better have some clue of what he is talking bout…pathetic madden playing fanboy opinion..tell fool, to learn a thing or two about our defensive schemes and how Pryor was used the past two years at Louisville..calling his opinion AMATUER is an understatement

          • oreofestar

            Yo I love Calvin but even if he is there safety is not the biggest need it is adequate enough to get us by until next year when we will likely be in a similar place but you know I would love us to get him he is one of my top 5 targets at 22

          • GEAGLE

            I love Pryor…I was promising he would be a first round pick back when every single media member had him listed as a first rounder, that how high I thought of him….but before free agency I spent a lot of time going back and watching how we use our safeties, and whether I love Calvin or not, he isn’t going to apeal to the Eagles….I love Big fat run stuffing NT, but if i know for a fact our schemes don’t value those NTs, there is no point in me talking about them all day……so as much as I like the kid personally, I can promise he won’t appeal to the birds at 22

          • GEAGLE

            Pretty certain we ain’t drafting DBs early,,,,the defensive improvements will be geared towards improving our ability to get of the field on 3rd down…an interior pass rusher to rotate with Curry and Cox…a ROLB to be our nickle pass rusher this year and take over for Cole as a 3 down OLB in 2015…and ILBs who can cover for 3down subpackages,..those are the defensive upgrades we can count on in the draft

          • oreofestar

            U know the Eagles are high on Bucannon they would draft him at 54 but he won’t make it there and I doubt they draft any other DB in the first 3 round OLB and WR are going to be the major targets unless HAHA fell then they might consider it

          • GEAGLE

            Bucannon is my fav safety in the draft…some things he does really well..and I suspect he has enough range to appeal to us…but I’m having hard time finding film of him in man coverage lined up on a slot or TE, and if we don’t think he can do that at a high level, I’m not sure we draft him but I would LOVE him to be an eagle….I think he will appeal to us for sure on some level, but I need to see more before I can really try and speak on it

          • oreofestar

            If he somehow made it to 54 and we were not in love with the OLBs left hen I think we take him but we would not trade up in the 2nd for him like we probably would have to so I am not holding my breath

          • oreofestar

            I agree and that sucks they probably would like HAHA but if won’t get past 17, Guys I think are good picks at 22 are Pryor, ODB!!!!, Cooks, Ealy, Ebron

          • GEAGLE

            Be very surprised if we drafted Cooks….Ealy I’m not sure of
            I’m sure the other two would be high on our board with they fell to 22….

          • oreofestar

            Cooks is starting to appeal to me, pretty high ceiling lots of production probably torched Oregon a lot and he is basically Desean but 15 pounds heavier, just as fast, an inch taller and without character concerns

          • oreofestar

            Plus Cooks is way tougher than DJAX and will bang it up in the slot too but I obviously prefer ODB

    • PhillySean

      You could just as easily say “convicted felon named starting QB, player with unsavory friends released”.

      • James Brown

        Vick actually paid for his crime and lost his job, while Cooper get 1 week of therapy and millions in his bank account.

        No comparison

        • PhillySean

          You think Cooper should have gone to jail?

          Anyway, I wasn’t comparing Cooper and Vick.

          I was comparing treatment of Vick to treatment of D-Jax.

          You don’t want to go there. I wonder why.

          • James Brown

            No I feel Cooper should have lost his job.

            PhillySean let me ask you. If you go to your job and threaten to “fight every N—-R in here” would you still have your job? Would you get a raise instead?

          • PhillySean

            i’m sure I’d lose my job. As is the case with much of what you’ve already said, I’m not sure that this is an apples to apples comparison.
            Was Riley Cooper attending that concert on official Eagles business?

          • anon

            Yeah they all made an appearance I think even ck was there. Not sure it wax official business but I’d call it a work function.

            Regardless who cares if someone catches it on social media you’re fired regardless.

            That said Rileys story is more about redemption than desperate treatment. If djax was a chior boy this year thing eagles might have kept him.

            Not going to convince you because you seem like an incredibly simple minded person trying to simplify a complex situation. No one feels that Jackson was cut for just one reason – it’s obviously more nuanced than that.

          • G_WallyHunter

            aaaand boom there goes the dynamite

          • Richard Colton

            I love the lowest-common-denominator people automatically want to descend to. Like, just because the Eagles gave Vick & Cooper a second chance, they surrender any prerogative
            to insist players act right.

            How about this? It’s football. Players are treated fair, not treated the same. Jason Avan has an off-field issue, he’s cut three years ago. If DeSean gave any kind of sign he was willing to handle his business as a player, he’s still on this team today.

          • PhillySean

            I mentioned Vick because it exposes the idiocy of the race angle asserted earlier in this thread. You might want to reserve your insults for people that disagree with you.

            Looks like it’s going great! He’s got a couple of uber valuable upvotes and I, for one, am now totally convinced that the Eagles are racist.

            I mean, they gave Riley a raise for saying the N word! I’m a little worried Casey Matthews will cotton on to this and post videos of himself dropping N bombs all over Philly in an effort to get a new contract.

          • IrishEagle25

            If the locker room turned on Coop, then he would have been released.. point blank , but no all we heard were his team mates defending him.. Yes Its a horrible thing to say, but
            1: It didnt happen at work , so you cant compare it to a normal workplace,
            2: One comment doesnt make you a racist, a stupid drunk, absolutely..
            Im not comparing this to DJax, thats a whole other story.. But by the sounds of his teammates, who know Coop a lot better than we do which i think is very important here, it seems like he was trying to say the most hurtful thing possible to someone in a fight.. not saying it was a good thing to do it absolutely wasn’t, but calling the eagles racist for extending him is a bit far fetched..
            Look at the comments from the players after it happened with Cooper, and then when DJax got released, to see how the locker room thinks of those guys..

          • EaglesFanInPhx

            guess what? He wasn’t AT his job when it happened. He was drunk at a concert and it just happened to get caught on video. No, it doesn’t make it “ok”, but it also doesn’t make it a fireable offense.

I bet you thought Kevin Klob was joe Montana and now you think Foles is Steve young. Smh your the troll and it’s sad that you guys have no clue about life and definitely not about football.

    • Hiral

      I agree but DeSean shouldn’t have been throwing gang signs. It’s sad we let him go but I can’t wait to see Maclin this year. The way he threw DeSean under the bus I hope his hands are as lethal as his mouth.

    One thing the media is not point out is DeSean Jackson had 1300 yrds 9 TD’s this season…ALL UNDER CHIP KELLY….He no longer has Chip and Eagles fans know that it was going on 3 years since DeSean even saw 1,000 yard season.

    If you think DeSean is going to put up those number again out side of CHIP KELLY when he only did it once 4 years ago your are crazy… I see 800 yards 5 TD’s

    • anon

      Shady had 700 yds under Reid one season is he a bad rb?

      • Richard Colton

        and anyway who cares? him playing poorly for another team isn’t going to make me feel better about losing the best one we had.

      • Maggie

        Nope. Reid and Marty don’t like running backs. They always think they “saw something downfield”. Then they send the star RB out to get injured when down by 4 touchdowns and 2 minutes left in the game.

  • Will

    DeSean Jackson is on the wrong path…

    DeSean Jackson’s friend’s are 2 known associates or members of The LA
    Street Gang “THE CRIPS” who were charged with murder. This is who
    DeSean chooses to hang out with in his spare time. This is a very
    serious character flaw and social issue . A LA Aaron Hernandez of New
    England Patriots changed the landscape of how this is viewed. Cooper
    being drunk and cussing at a concert pales in comparison. Now if Cooper
    was hanging out with 2 known members of the Ku Klux Klan Clan who were
    charged with murder ( Cooper would be gone in a New York second) than
    you could compare the two players. So put your race card away it does
    not apply to this situation. I support the Eagles FO 110% in this move.
    DeSean was not living up to being a Great role model or example for the
    youth of America involved in sports. As the former highest paid player
    on the Eagles roster DeSean needs to understand he became the face of
    the Eagles Organization.This clearly is not the example or message that
    the Eagles will sign off on or ignore. DeSean Jackson clearly is to
    blame for his actions and suffered the consequences…In Chip Kelly I
    trust…walk away comes to mind which after careful consideration the
    Eagles Organization did the next right thing for the team…

    The gang is involved in drug trafficking, racketeering, extortion,
    murder, prostitution and robbery. Most of the gang’s murders involve
    disputes over territory and drugs…

    Redskins would be a perfect fit with him being a quitter and all. It would be easy for him fit right in with their well established culture. The entire roster packed it in early last year.

    Hilarious only two joke franchises even mildly interested in jaCCson … Skins and raiders and raiders still doing background check …. Guess the birds weren’t so crazy and rascist and irresponsible and arrogant

    • Hiral (GM)

      I hope you accept my challenge troll. Please read your previous comments and let me know of you would like to do an eagles mock draft. In the meantime please stop trolling

      • Tom w

        Get a life. I’m on here every day. Go run into traffic and let the adults talk. Been doing mock drafts since January w out the help of the silly websites w ridiculous trades.

        You’ve added nothing to the site once again but thanks.

        • Hiral (GM)

          Your comments are cuter than Mark Sanchez in that headband. And you being on this site posting trash and your fugazzi mock drafts is why I challenged you so we can stop your clown talk. Every week I have to read your comments about ODB etc etc. Give it a break dude I don’t know what football you have been watching but it clearly isn’t Eagle football. Ironically you’ve been posting mock draft so you and your same pundits can all agree and give yourselves keyboard high fives. Lol.. And soon as someone has a difference of opinion than you call them a troll when in actuality it’s your trolling that’s hurting this website. It’s just 8 of you clowns so hopefully we can do this mock draft challenge since you’ve been at it since January. Lol. If I don’t have to read another comment from you or your 7 other clowns I would equate that to a Super Bowl. Do you accept my challenge troll master?

          • Tom w

    The picture should have been DeSean putting up the gang signs in Hall’s face.

    • OldDocRoss

      I like this one. It appears he may be trying to tweak Hall’s nipples.

      He’s just that gangsta.

    I am in awe of OBJ gorgeous hands, just wow…

    • cliff henny

      they are nice. I don’t know, hate this feeling, but really scared about how quiet they are being on Lee. pretty sure he killed it twice against Oregon, too

      • oreofestar

        yeah I like Lee a lot if we kept Jax and let Mac go I WOULD BE ALL over him but he is in my eyes MAC 2.0 with a slightly higher ceiling if healthy Brandin Cooks had to have scorched Oregon though

        • cliff henny

          thing on Cooks is he really didn’t do much till this year, was some bad press about attitude and work ethic give him credit, dedicated himself and had great year. but that’s almost like having best yr in contract year. knowing how Kelly wants these guys to eat sleep walk talk crap football, wonder if that will be issue.

          • oreofestar

            Hmmm, I have heard only great things about Cooks character….but Evans though :)

          • cliff henny

            they were on him for 3 yrs to put on weight, he finally did. it’s not character issues, it’s more cooks sr year should of happened sooner.

          • oreofestar

            Cooks is a guy I may be forcing myself to like but Chip would do wonders with him, Evans would be a 100/1500/15 guy by year 3 under Chip the kid is dangerous like really

  • Bryan Isacoff

    I’m hoping they trade down and accumulate some pics this year. Only having 6 is killing me.

  • oreofestar

    Yo anyone remember that guy like a month ago who said if we draft wr first round he will hang himself, wonder if he’ll do it :P

    • cliff henny

      yeah, I do. offered, being the nice guy that I am, to kick the chair out for him too. little rude that he didnt reply

      • oreofestar

        I don’t even remember who it was
