DeSean Jackson’s Coming Home, Stefen Wisniewski’s Option Not Picked Up, Nick Foles To Jacksonville

Chris Jastrzembski - March 11, 2019

It’s unofficially official.

After rumors started this morning about a potential DeSean Jackson return to Philadelphia, it appears a deal is in place to bring the wide receiver back from Tampa Bay.

The return is cheap.

Sounds like the team was also interested in Kenny Stills from Miami.

I’ll take it. He has one year left for $10 million which is a lot for where he’s at. So expect a reworked contract. Who knows what happens with Nelson Agholor.

Edit: Contract is restructured.

Report: DeSean Jackson Wants an Eagles Reunion

Russ Joy - March 11, 2019

The NFL’s legal tampering period is fast-approaching. Following a weekend that saw the Steelers trade Antonio Brown to the Oakland Raiders for a third and fifth-round pick, as well as Danny Amendola’s release and subsequent signing with the Detroit Lions, ESPN’s Jenna Laine and Tim McManus are reporting that the Tampa Bay Buccaneers are shopping WR DeSean Jackson, with the Eagles being a preferred destination for the player:

While the Bucs are shopping Jackson in hopes of finding a trade, there’s still a chance they’ll have to cut bait and let Jackson walk without compensation. Tampa Bay enters the offseason with less than $3.5m in cap space and releasing/trading Jackson would clear an additional $10m.

Jackson hauled in 41 receptions (4 TDs) on 74 targets for 774 yards in 2018 for an average of 18.9 yards per reception. That number is the third-highest of his career behind only 22.5 yd/rec (2010 w/ Eagles) and 20.9 yd/rec (2014 w/ Washington).

Home Team Disadvantage?

Mark Saltveit - December 26, 2015

The Eagles play the Skins tonight with a playoff berth on the line.

The good news is, Washington is a terrible road team. Consider this statistic:

espn - kirk cousins road vs home

Yes, the Skins have won 3 of the last four games. But as Tommy Lawlor points out, the loss was to the miserable Matt Cassell-led Cowboys. And the wins were against the Giants, the Bears, and a Bills team that appeared to give up after the Eagles eliminated them from playoff contention. The narrow victory against Chicago is their only road win all year.

On the other hand, the Eagles are not a good home team. They have the same record at home and on the road this year: 3-4. And that’s actually a major improvement.

Philadelphia set the NFL record by losing 10 straight home games between September 30, 2012 and November 17, 2013.

And the team they beat to break that streak? Washington.

DeSean Jaccson, Whose House Was Reportedly Stormed By Gun-Wielding Gang Bangers Last Week, Is Now a Dad

Kyle Scott - October 26, 2015

The subject of the first episode of DeSean Jaccson’s Home Team was born today. Congrats to proud papa DeSean, who also just put his California house, reportedly the scene of a dangerous home invasion where gun-wielding gang bangers pistol whipped his friends last week, on the market. Good to hear that his little bundle of joy will have his crib in a much safer, eyyy, crib, free of gangsters and other assorted hangers-on.

There Was A Home Invasion at DeSean Jaccson’s House, His Friends Attacced at Gunpoint

Kyle Scott - October 23, 2015

Eyyyyyyy ya boi d-jacc aint in no gang but hows got robed again n dis time dey sus pect gang N volv ment !!

From TMZ:

DeSean Jackson’s L.A. home was the scene of a violent home invasion incident this week — and at least one person inside got pistol whipped … TMZ Sports has learned.

It all went down Wednesday morning at Jackson’s home in Tarzana, CA — with law enforcement sources telling us 4 to 5 people stormed the home with guns.

We’re told investigators believe the intruders had been in the home before. Sources connected to incident tell us the intruders appeared to know exactly where the security cameras were placed.

Our law enforcement sources tell us cops have they have leads on some of the suspects — and believe the incident was gang related.

So this sounds a lot like what happened around here— DeSean’s house robbed, robbers know he’s not home, they curiously know where everything is. This time, there’s people inside, DeSean’s friends, and they’re pistol-whipped.

Prediction: DeSean says he’s not in a gang… fails to mention that all of his friends are and they live at his house.

Somewhere, Eliot Shorr-Parks smiles, wryly.

DeSean Jaccson, who can’t be stopped by anyone but who has always struggled in close-quarters press coverage, was injured today when he was blown up by… a blocking sled. From the Richmond Times-Dispatch:

Receiver DeSean Jackson was injured in the first 1-on-1 session of the day. He ran a long route, then appeared to hit his right shoulder against a blocking sled that was placed behind the end zone.

Jackson did not participate for the remainder of practice, and declined comment afterward. However, he remained on the field for several minutes after practice chatting and shaking hands with Houston players.

Just this week, DeSean reminded reporters that he can’t be stopped:

Didn’t say anything about inanimate metal objects, however. Wonder what this will do for his street cred, ya digg ?? What sucks is that the injury was witnessed by 7.8 billion people.

UPDATE: He has a Grade 2 separated shoulder and is out a couple of weeks.
