Eyyyy, ya boi DJacc might ain’t be da skin n e more ya herr !! Though his 20.9 yards per catch last season, the second highest total of his career (same with total receiving yards), led the league, he’s only played in 72.7% of his games in a Redskins uni (compared to 90.6% of his games as an Eagle from a much larger sample size). The Washington Post’s MIIIKE JOOOOONES, in his mailbag column, said that he would not be surprised if this is Jaccson’s last season in a ‘Skins uni:
“I’m expecting an overhaul of the receiving corps this offseason. I can’t see them bringing DeSean Jackson back to the tune of 9.25 million next season. He’s not reliable enough. Explosive, yes. But he’s not very versatile or dependable. Cutting him would save $8 million against the cap. Garcon has a cap number of $10.2 million next season, but the team could cut him and save another $8 million.”
I can’t imagine why they wouldn’t want to pay him over $9 million.
Just last week was the tenth anniversary of the so-called “Allen Iverson rule,” more commonly known as the NBA’s dress code. In a piece by Yahoo’s Marc Spears, he says Iverson’s baggy clothing that inspired the rule also carried over to his suit game, but it was just a comfort thing according to Andre Iguodala:
Former Sixers forward Andrew Iguodala said Iverson bought several oversized suits to adhere to the dress code.
“Allen wasn’t a fan of it,” said Iguodala, now with the Warriors. “Allen just wanted to be comfortable. He wasn’t trying to just be a rebel without a cause. He was like, ‘I just want to be comfortable. I just want to go to the game and play basketball.’ He didn’t want to be uptight or feel restricted.
“You watched him play and his style was to be able to freelance and move carefree, just be comfortable in his own world. He said, ‘When I do that, I don’t want to be restricted with a tie or collar on my neck.'”
What we’ve all been waiting for, a Chip Kelly emoji:
What play could he be calling here, other than “Cat Shit”? Matt Mullin at the PhillyVoice has a good theory: “Either Sam Bradford’s about to throw an interception or, more likely, someone needs to clean out his cat’s litter box.” You know what? Chip does feel like a cat guy to me.
Chip bought a house in New Jersey? Kyle: Multiple tipsters giving slightly varying bits about Chip, but here seems to be the common theme: Chip bought a house in Haddonfield, very near Sam Bradford, perhaps across the street.
