DeSean Jackson Wants a New Contract

Screen Shot 2013-05-06 at 2.33.10 PMGOOD MORNING AND WELCOME BACK TO THE WORLD, THE NEW YEAR, THE HORRIBLE RAIN AND THE IMPENDING SUB-ZERO TEMPERATURES. THE EAGLES ARE OUT OF THE PLAYOFFS AND SPORTS STINK AGAIN. AND NOW, DESEAN JACKSON WANTS A NEW CONTRACT.

Speaking reporters this morning, D-Jac said:

AH GAH!

Jackson signed a five-year deal in 2012, which will take him through the 2016 season. He made $6.75 million last season and that number will go up to over $10 million next season. There is little guaranteed money from here on out, however, so some considered this past season a virtual contract year for D-Jac. Last May, Tim McManus wrote the following on Philly Mag:

The way the deal is structured, the Eagles essentially committed to  Jackson for two seasons, paying him $18 million over that time. The rest of the contract is basically filled with option years, and they come at a steep price.

Jackson is slated to make $6.75 million this season ($4 million fully guaranteed), which is the fifth-highest base salary among receivers in ’13, per spotrac.com. That number jumps to $10.25 million in 2014, and hovers around there for the remainder of the deal. That’s right up there with Larry Fitzgerald‘s salary ($12.75). Roddy White‘s take-home for next season is less than half that number.

Jackson is coming off the best season of his career and a week-long love fest with Lil Terrio. His desire for some guaranteed money is understandable, but oh holy shit, only D-Jac would handle it this way. Today, speaking to the media, is not the way to set things in motion.

I totally wasn’t ready for offseason DeSean Jackson yet.

  1. He just wants more guaranteed years on the back end. It’s understandable. We have a shit ton of money…Just restructure the deal and get it over with. They aren’t going to do shit in free agency anyway outside of retaining a few expiring contracts like Cooper and Maclin…

    As long as they have enough $ to sign their draft picks, and a kicker with a little left over, who gives a fuuuuuuuuuuuuuuu.

    Am I the only one that thinks DJAC is just a bit overrated and isn’t worth top tier wide out money?

    • I agree with you. He’s a solid wr, but definitely replaceable.

      • without a doubt, totally replaceable! whenever the eagles get inside the 20, they rarely go to him because his speed becomes neutralized in a short field. he has a lot of gull looking for top receiver money when all he is is a track star in a helmet. also, he looked to be the warmest player on the field on saturday night being as keenan lewis provided him with an extra layer by blanketing him. desean saw no catches until we was covered by a 3rd string corner.

  3. “I need a new contract” To the media?

    When did the media become the first line to speak to about your contract? Wouldn’t this be something your agent handles while you just quietly sit back and wait?

    They need to shit can him and get a real number one receiver!

    The only reason he is ever even open is cause everyone is always double covering riley cooper

  6. After that great performance Saturday he deserves it

  7. Yeah, that’s not exactly what we want to hear from our #1 wideout right after we suffer a crushing playoff loss in a game where he was nearly invisible for the first 3 quarters.

    Very bad form, but somehow not surprising.

    The one who should be getting a new contract with the Eagles is (surprisingly enough) Riley Cooper. (Maclin too.)

    • Cooper will be gone. No matter how well he played there’s still a problem with him in that locker-room (as there should be). If the Eagles give him more money and cut loose Maclin (which they will do) and have to deal with this Jackson mess they’ll be near mutiny.

      Goldilocks and his bigotted backwoods ways wil be gone. That long hair can’t cover that redneck.

      • They should re-sign both Cooper & Maclin.

        If people can forgive Vick (which they should), they should certainly forgive Cooper. Seems like his teammates get along with him just fine.

  8. when coons get on the back porch, mamma just chases them off with a broom

  9. Ha. This is hilarious. And exactly what the Eagles deserve for rewarding this jackass with a new contract after he pouted and admittedly quit on the team during the 2011 season.

    This guy is a jerk.

    Roseman and Kelly will bow down to him because they’ve both shown they have no backbone. That locker-room should be a fun place next season.

    What did Jackson do Saturday night by the way? Oh, he was invisible until he went up against the Saints’ 3rd string corner back.

  10. Deserved??? Because he worked hard for an actual season?

    They are gonna fold and give his overrated ass even more money just in time for his tiny self to suffer a nice season ending injury.

    The dude is talented, no doubt. But there is no way a man of his size stays healthy much longer.

    She has no shot, she’s black

  12. Sounds like his bank account is nearing zero, how much did he flush down the toliet on that rap label he started?

  13. I follow his twitter feed, however I don’t speak ebonics. I can tell how white i am by not understanding a damn word in his tweets.

  14. Nigs gonna nig what can I say? Magical powers in them flat brimmed hats. It has the same affect on me when I throw on my Famous Stars hat. I be poppin’ the most expensive craft beers you can find this side of the Schuylkill!

  15. YOU STILL WEARING YOUR TIMS AND HANGING WITH THE JAMAICANS?
    COOL RUNNINGS!

    • You know it! Instead being a pussy and only getting a contact high now, I am getting stoned to the bejeezus belt! I got my own anti-piss test kit that I found on the internet. I’ve been clean and green every time I take one, but I am only coming down off my high of herbs and zit faced bitches.

  16. What’s up with black dudes in pictures? How come they always pose like drunk white chicks?

  17. Trade him if you can. You pay him one dime more and you’ll have everyone at your door asking for more. The dude signed a contract under no duress; he should be expected to honor it. The last time he was unhappy about his contract, he gave a half-assed effort; why shouldn’t you expect the same half-assed effort now? Message to Eagles: Trade this dude!
