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.
