Found May 12, 2012 on Pro Football Zone:

Philadelphia Eagles wide receiver DeSean Jackson is urging his teammate LeSean McCoy to not hold out during training camp like he did last season.

“I think it would be in his best interest to come” to offseason practices and camp, Jackson said Friday. “Looking back now it really hurt me more than I thought it helped me. Hopefully he saw everything I went through, and hopefully [agent] Drew [Rosenhaus] won’t have him go through the same thing.”

Jackson also said that taking his contract dispute to the media only hurt his ability to negotiate with the Eagles.

“Them feeling like me holding out was more of a statement and trying to prove something,” Jackson said. “I just hope he doesn’t take it there with the team because the Eagles are a team you don’t want to try force anything with them or strong-arm them, because you know Joe Banner, Howie Roseman, Coach [Andy] Reid, they’re not the easiest people to force to get things with.”
