[News] Eagles Release WR DeSean Jackson

Recommended Posts

As being fans of the Philadelphia Eagles we should be used to this. The Eagles have always made very unpopular decisions. The most popular one I remember is drafting McNabb over Ricky Williams. That ultimately turned out to be a great decision. Releasing Avant was an unpopular decision because we easily lost a couple of points on our 3 down conversion percentage just releasing Avant. Then we sign Mark Sanchez which not many think wasn't a wise decision at all. Then the biggest one, we release Desean Jackson. I honestly thought the whole trade/release rumor thing was just another one of the Eagles "media distractions." Then it happened. Now I got to buy 3 new jerseys. I had the alternate and away Jackson jersey and the home Vick jersey. But I'm just going to sit back and watch and see how all this is going to pan out. I honestly thought we were capable of NFC Championship appearance with Desean and company. It's obvious that there was other problems going on with Desean. I still think it was bad timing to release him just minutes after it got out that he had affilations with gang members who were suspects of 2 homicide cases in Jersey. I seems to me that the media is trying to water down his skills with image blimishes. Good luck Desean, you will be missed but you really need to bring a more humble approach to your next employer. His arrogance and attitude will not get him far.

I AM NOT HAPPY!!!! So you think the "Chip Kelly System" is where the success lies, huh? The players are now expendable? Doesn't matter if they play well at all, huh? What message does that send to the rest of the players? Did you think about that? The Eagles are NOT New England!!! They think they are. Foles is not Brady! If you really look at the tape from last year, Foles had horrible completed passes that the WR's hauled in! Don't get me wrong I like what Kelly's doing. But it's still unproven. And now they are about to screw over Mathis. You can not build a championship on the cheap! Players have to jell. You just can't toss players aside (especially good ones) just because you don't want to pay them what they worked hard to achive. I AM NOT HAPPY!!!!

Why would you just release him when you were at least offered a 3rd round draft pick for him. Now you have nothing. T.O. scenario all over again. All we want is a damn Super Bowl Trophy in Philly. I guess Jerry Jones will be on the phone seeing how he can get DeSean on the Cowgirls and if that happens Desean will hurt us a lot more than T.O. did because of his special team skills. 5 picks in a draft where it is swarming with talent, Good job

I like Jackson, but when he admitted he didn't play up to his potential because of his contract, this was a sign of trouble. Who does that?

If he didn't get a new contract, was he going to do it again?

Sorry folks...he had to go!!!

In Chip we trust, er, God, er, the dollar, oh heck...go eagles.

Plain and simple...Eagles did not want to pay DeSean the money they used to resign him a couple years ago. He was due to make about $30 million over the remainder of his contract. Problem is that after riley Cooper, who surprised us all and can he do it again this coming season, who else can catch the ball? Maclin won't play a full season, he gets hurt early in every season. Shady McCoy will be getting the ball 35 times a game and getting beat up with all the hits he will take. We need a deep threat, a second running back, and a good backup to Foles. Sanchez is suspect at best, Barkley is not ready at all. Chip has nothing to lose...if he flops In the NFL he will do the Steve Spurrier and go back to the college ranks. He has nothing invested here. I am surprised he did not jump at the USC job.

I would think the fact that 31 teams did not even wish to give a 7th for him should shut some of you Kelly and Roseman bashers up?

The 7th would have been nice, perhaps we could have found a true slot receiver with it...

Yeah, and we should also let us fans and the owners who pay these dirtbags voice their own opinions, and do what they feel is best for the TEAM........its a TEAM first!!!!

it's a GM and Coach's job to decide who's guilty by association -- part of their job to control the locker room and culture of the team (see also Aaron Hernandez and those clowns in Miami -- don't think any of them have been convicted of anything yet but I sure wouldn't want any of them on my team).

Will be interesting to see where he ends up -- agree that if no one would even give up a 7th for him, that's a problem.

If that article is true than the Eagles and Chip are trying to do for DeSean, what Buddy Ryan and the Eagles did for Chris Carter ( another great talent that was on the road to self distruction). Which is give him a wake up call to want to redicrect his steps in a more positive direction. For all those who are too player driven to even consider this wasn't the right move, aren't really fans of this team. But just followers of certain players. Those kind of fans will NEVER understand why, or appreicate the "tough love" of a hard decision suuh as that had to be. The Eagles are willing to take a 6 mil cap hit, and get nothing in return for him by out and out releasinghhim, , must tell you the seriousness of what brought about that decision.

@itsayoungearth the reason why 31 teams didn't give up a 7th round or any rounder for that matter is because by trading the trading team would have to had to pay out the rest of Deseans expensive contract. If there was someone willing to pay out his contract he would have been traded before the rumors of trade even got out. Desean being release is going to hurt him a little because now he's going to get another contract and it wont be as much as he was getting with us and he was already crying about another contract after honoring his current contract. But I still think we should have given him another year because he knows this offense. Now we are going to have to find another receiver and he is going to have to learn and find a way to fit into this offense. I think this was more of a Howie's idea rather than Chips. Even though Chip does have some GM privileges over this team I think he wanted to keep Jackson.

WTH! He should have at least been traded for a pick or player of value regardless of his rumored off field associations or how he got along with the current regime. You can't just let a guy with his skills walk for absolutely nothing! What, they would have felt guilty pawning him off to another team! BS..

You know, the ONLY reason i get on here anymore when there is big news, is to laugh at all of you doom-and-gloomers. you are seriously laughable. yea, it sucks to lose the deep threat. yeah, it sucks to lose the productivity. however, i will NOT miss the drama. One of the gems i read was "this is not the patriots and nick foles is not tom brady." OF COURSE NOT, because if it were, 'ol bill would have kicked jackson to the curb years ago for his attitude and not playing team-first football

Let me ask you this. after J-Mac blew his knee out last year, who did you think was going to compliment jackson? Sure wouldn't be cooper right? especially after what happened last spring. WRONG. did ANYONE in eagles nation call that coop would be as productive as he was? i high ly doubt it. I can remember back to when we released/traded bobby taylor and troy vincent.... among others. everyone FREAKED OUT. what did the FO do? drafted lito shepherd and sheldon brown. problem solved (for a little while). you people need to relax. let the FO do what they do, and run the team. If you mattered, they would have given you a call and consulted you. these people have forgotten more about football (both on the field and in the office) then you or I will ever know. let the experts be the experts.

what this tells me? there's something coming as far as a WR. either draft, or F/A. they wouldn't release jackson AND avant, without something else coming.

appatight thinks they know what Chip is thinking and that he wanted to keep Jackson. BS! We all appreciate what D-Jac could do on the field with his speed and quickness. Was anybody else exhausted over the drama that this diva kept stoking? It makes sense that Jackson's situation is unraveling currently or I would guess that Avant would not have been released. My money is on Jason being resigned as a stop-gap and we draft WR in the 2nd and 3rd rounds.

I guess we cant't trust Chip Kelly to be honest.last week he told him not to worry and cuts him this week.

dumbest move the Eagles they have ever made,have been a season ticket holder since 1960.

and i have seen it all but this rally pisses me off,thanks Chip.he might be a pain in the a** but he was a weapon that you don;t have any more hope he burns your a**.

There is a story coming out of NJ that he was cut because of his Gang Connections in California involving 2 murders in 2010. It said two of his Gang friends where involved. It also said he missed meetings, had a bad attitude and didn't get along with Kelly.
