Eagles’ DeSean Jackson Wants a Raise
(PHILADELPHIA) — Coming off of a career-year under head coach Chip Kelly, Philadelphia Eagles wide receiver DeSean Jackson has let it be known he’d like a raise…again.
“I definitely feel it’s something deserving,” Jackson told reporters on Monday. “We’ll see how that plays out.”
“I’m proven in this league,” he added. “After this past year, [I] went out there, no distractions, and just really put it all in for my team and went out there and had a lot of success, so we’ll see how it goes.”
Last year Jackson set career highs across the board. He caught 82 passes for 1,332 yards and nine touchdowns.
In the past, Jackson has expressed his desire to earn a bigger contract. Back in March 2012, Jackson agreed to a five-year deal worth nearly $50 million with a $10 million signing bonus.
Jackson might be the least of the Eagles’ worries this offseason when it comes to the wide receiver position. Both Jeremy Maclin and Riley Cooper are free agents this offseason.
