Hate is a strong word.. but I hate him
I'd rather him be exiled from the NFCE and never heard of again.
Man, the Eagles must REALLY want rid of him. According to Daily News, someone "close to the Eagles" says they will release him if they can't find a trade partner. Also CNN Philly, and Philadelphia Inquirer have been told by "sources" that "hr's as good as gone". (Sorry, I haven't figured out yet how to post link to MB with my Chrome Book).
I think it will be highly unlikely even a team like Raiders will trade a 1st or 2nd rd draft pick AND absorb DJ's $10 mil per yr contract.
As a FA, however, I could see Patriots doing everything possible to obtain him for 1 or 2 yrs. Yikes.
He wouldn't fit under the cap.
Excerpt: "The Seahawks and 49ers are among the teams showing interest in Eagles receiver DeSean Jackson, according to league sources.
The Eagles have stepped up efforts to trade Jackson, according to multiple sources, shopping him to several teams. After re-signing Riley Cooper and Jeremy Maclin, and with Jackson's contract steep and this draft loaded with receivers, the Eagles are exploring all options to move on without him.
Jackson is coming off a career year in Chip Kelly's offense but can be high maintenance and has chirped about his contract. Plus, Kelly's system could continue to help boost the production of other receivers.
With Jackson set to make $10.5 million and faced with a cap hit of over $12 million, trading Jackson could prove difficult. Jackson is not looking to re-do his contract to facilitate a trade to this point, with the chance to hit the open market and negotiate with any team perhaps advantageous. Several general managers said they have interest in Jackson but not at his current price tag, given some of his baggage, and they expect that ultimately the Eagles will release him." Read more...
Excerpt: "The Jets have been rumored to have interest in Eagles wideout DeSean Jackson. And that interest is real, owner Woody Johnson confirmed at the 2013 NFL owners meetings on Sunday.
And Johnson walked a fine line by discussing a player under contract with another team while talking about Jackson too, although he said the Jets prefer not to trade for the wideout.
"We're looking at a number of players, including DeSean. He's a very good player and we're looking at a number of them," Johnson said. "Trade's not our primary operating motif right now. We're trying to go through the draft. Going through the draft is way to build a successful team long term."
In other words, the Jets would probably love to get their hands on Jackson if the Eagles ultimately decide to cut him -- which seems like a fait accompli at this point -- right?
"We're always interested in talent," Johnson said. "If it's somebody that fits into our locker room and understands how to fit into our culture and has a price that we can afford is appropriate." Read more..
