Eagles | DeSean Jackson contract update

The Philadelphia Eagles could get out of their contract with WR DeSean Jackson after two years. According to a league source, Jackson gets a $10 million signing bonus and a $750,000 base salary in 2012. He gets a $6.75 million base salary in 2013, and $4 million of that is fully guaranteed while the rest is guaranteed only against injury. Of Jackson's $10.25 million 2014 salary, only $250,000 is fully guaranteed and $250,000 is guaranteed against injury. He is eligible for a $250,000 workout bonus in each year of the deal, and his base salaries for the final two years are not guaranteed. As a result, the Eagles can easily escape after the 2013 season if they want to. And if they don't, they can keep Jackson for salaries that likely will be well below market value in the final three years.
