D-Jax is back.

His new five-year contract will run through the 2016 season. He previously had been designated as the team’s franchise player, but most assumed he would either be dealt or signed to an extension.

Big Andy is excited.

“We are thrilled to be able to keep one of the NFL’s top playmakers in Philadelphia. DeSean is a game breaker, he has the speed and ability to score from anywhere on the field, and he has proven himself to be a big threat for our offense. Signing our own players was a big priority for us this offseason and DeSean was certainly high on our list. We are very excited about his future as an Eagle.”


According to Pro Football Talk, the deal has a base value of $47 million with $15 million fully guaranteed.

Somewhere, Jason Babin is tearing up about DeSean's new found job security.

  1. After Drew’s cut, and loan back for past cash advances, DJax will be left with nothing.

  2. I guess it is a good deal for the Birds. Pacify the lil bitch De$ean so he HAS to play. If he sucks, he’s gone.

  3. Like it or not the deal is done … DSJ got what he earned now he has to show he’s worth what he got. All about results over the 5 years and in Philly that means SuperBowl!

  4. the Entourage just got bigger – “we be ballin yo” – celebration bar bill this time will be 100K
    start building the mansion, buy the nightclub, a fleet of Escalades, some righteous Ice…
    I hope he plays long enough to get an NFL pension – that $49 Mill is in the wind

  5. Reuben Frank just said that Jackson got a $10 million signing bonus, and will make a base salary of $750,000 in 2012 and $675,000 in 2013. I’m figuring he’ll then be cut or have his contract restructured, since he’ll be owed about $10 million base salary each year in 2014, 2015, and 2016. No way he sees any of that money. So, instead of the Eagles paying him about $10 million just for this year, they’ll pay him about $12 million over the next 2 years. Can’t believe Jackson signed this.

  6. P.S. Reuben Frank’s numbers for Jackson in 2013 are totally different than what PFT is reporting. Not sure which numbers are correct.
