Eagles DeSean Jackson performing himself out of a big contract

What seemed to be an endless supply of new faces and free agents at the start of training camp for the Philadelphia Eagles seemed to make a sure path to the Super Bowl.

Sitting at 4-8, thirteen weeks into the season, nothing could be further than the truth.

And while DeSean Jackson and LeSean McCoy are both making less than $1,000,000 on their respective rookie contracts, one is playing and one is not.

McCoy is among the league leaders in rushing for the Eagles, says the right things and has been a good soldier.

The Eagles and McCoy earlier this season apparently talked about a new contract, this being his second season.

Jackson, following an outstanding game in a win against the Giants, is at the other end of the spectrum.

They both had something else in common, until early November.

Both had Drew Rosenhaus as their agent.

McCoy fired Rosenhaus, while Jackson kept him on.

‘Member this guy? Owens_195

He is with Terrell Owens during the 2005 season. And we all know how that turned out.

WIP talk show host Howard Eskin reported recently that Jackson owes his agent money.

From what I’m told, [Jackson] owes Drew Rosenhaus a lot of money. . . . We’re talking hundreds of thousands of dollars. Is he broke? I don’t know how you define broke, but I know when he signs his new deal he will owe Drew Rosenhaus a lot of money.”

Whether the Rosenhaus story is true or not, Jackson has put himself into a difficult position.

In a perfect world, the Eagles would have paid Jackson his money going into the season.

But he held out.

That created the situation where he had to perform and earn the contract.

The New England game was maddening as Jackson dropped two potential touchdown passes. DeSean drop vs. Patriots

And he got testy with reporters when they asked him about hanging out with the defensive players before the Seattle game in the post-game locker room.

With losing, Jackson’s flip attitude doesn’t play anymore. Djack

If he plays out the season, one good game, two bad or average ones to finish the season, who’s gonna pay him?

flip attitude doesn’t play anymore.

I tried to find the picture of Jackson flipping the ball to the Giants assistant coach, but could not find it.

I still kept the comment.

The dance across the end zone to run out time, dropping the ball at the one yard line against Dallas, was forgiven when the Eagles were winning.

It seems lame now.
