Eagles Place DeSean Jackson on IR

Russ Joy - November 5, 2019

If your immediate reaction to yesterday’s news that DeSean Jackson was going under the knife to address an abdominal/sports hernia was one of disappointment, today’s news should make you feel even worse:

That’s it, that’s all, folks. Unless you believe the Eagles are going to make the second round of the playoffs, DeSean’s season is over. He’d be eligible to return in eight games, which officially takes him out of the equation for a Week 16 matchup against the Dallas Cowboys. At least we have the Sixers, right?

DeSean Jackson Says of Playing Sunday “That’s the Plan”, But Does He Mean It?

Russ Joy - November 1, 2019

Earlier today, Eagles coach Doug Pederson expressed optimism that dynamic wideout DeSean Jaccson would play on Sunday against the Bears, but DJax didn’t exactly sound like he’s bought into the hype coursing through the veins of the Eagles Twitterverse:

Reporter: DeSean, you think you’re playing on Sunday. If so, are you excited about it?

Jackson: That’s the plan right now. Definitely been a long process, so we’ll see how it goes.

Reporter: Is there a risk of reinjuring it more or is it just a matter of being able to try to do the things you can do while dealing with the injury?

Jackson: It’s just a thing that I’m dealing with right now. Not too many answers for it, just a common injury, so we’ll see how it goes and I’m trying to do everything I can to take care of it and get right, so we’ll see how it plays out.

Reporter: Has this taken longer than you expected?

Jackson: Shoot…

Now, is it possible that he doesn’t want to get everyone’s hopes up for a big game on Sunday? Sure. Could it be a bit of gamesmanship to keep the Bears’ coaches on their toes? It’s possible. This, though, was by no means a fist-pumping triumph over what has been a nagging injury.

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.
