2011 was the final season of DeSean Jackson’s rookie contract.  It paid him $600,000 dollars.  To a struggling writer that’s a pot of gold but to an NFL receiver it’s chump change.  Jackson held out at the start of the season in hopes of a new contract.  When the Eagles wouldn’t budge he eventually reported only to have his second consecutive season of declining numbers.  In 2009, Jackson caught nine touchdown passes.  In two seasons since he has combined for only 10 with six in 2010 and four in 2011. Because of this decline Jackson’s estimation of his value differs significantly from that of the Eagles.  If a contract can’t be negotiated between the two parties DeSean Jackson will become a prized free agent in 2012.  Here are five teams that could use his services. Chicago Bears:  The Bears desperately need help at the receiver position.  The Roy Williams – Sam Hurd experiment in 2011 was an epic failure.  Johnny Knox and Devin Hester are explosive but are complimentary receivers at best.  By far the best receiver on the Bears’ roster is Earl Bennett.  Quarterback Jay Cutler and Bennett have exceptional chemistry and productivity on the field.  That would only be enhanced [...]

  • He will get his and the Eagle FO will look like the arogant a-holes that they are.
  • he gave up on his team mates his fans elite speed not elite hands cant go over middle he is elusive and can be used in the screen game so what is he top ten no top 20 yes so both sides have to do the math and get it done the taem that over pays will be the true aholes
  • Agree been an die hard crazy eagles fan since 1961 another spoiled brat that should be thankful he has a job period not alone playing a kids game, plus all the endorsements deals etc I say package him and Samuels another idiot big mouth who doesn't tackle and maybe pick up another 1 & 2 round picks plus more won't win with their attitude me first since we have a terrible coach this makes matters worse. I do not want them to make thensame mistake my Phillies made by signing Howard to that ridiculous 125 mil dollar extension he like Jackson's number decline each year
  • Little T.O will end up like big T.O. Playing indoors somewhere ROFLMAO.
  • And how is the Minnesota Vikings not on this list??
