Philadelphia Eagles WR DeSean Jackson clarified but ultimately stood behind his comments about wanting to have the Eagles' starting quarterback named before training camp.
"I wish I could know, but at the end of the day, that's the coach's decision," Jackson said. "I'm going to play that how it goes. I think we have four great quarterbacks, with [Michael] Vick, [Nick] Foles, [Matt] Barkley and [Dennis] Dixon ... I think throughout the offseason, everybody did everything the right way, everybody practiced hard, everybody was there, accountable, and did the things they were asked to do ... moving forward, we just look forward to knowing who will be [the starter], because that'll definitely help us prepare better going into the season. He's [Chip Kelly] never been a coach of ours; of course, with a new system, he's going to want to know who best fits the system."

NFL agent Drew Rosenhaus has filed a grievance against Philadelphia Eagles WR DeSean Jackson, alleging his former client Jackson owes him more than $400,000 in unpaid loans. Rosenhaus claims Jackson took multiple loans between 2009 and March 2012, according to a source. Jackson fired Rosenhaus in late May, and has yet to secure a new agent.

Philadelphia Eagles WR DeSean Jackson said he had a meeting with head coach Chip Kelly after Jackson was running with the third-team offense at times in OTAs. Jackson said he got the message and is all-in. "He just expects everyone to do things a certain way," Jackson said. "He was asking everybody to do the same thing. For myself, I just had to really hear it from his mouth to get that rapport with him and be on the same page with him. When I went in there, he said he expects everybody to buy into the system and do everything the right way."

Thu, 23 May 2013 15:21:26 -0700
Philadelphia Eagles head coach Chip Kelly confirmed that he prefers larger and taller players at most positions on his team, but he's in favor of protecting his smaller players like WR DeSean Jackson. Jackson touched the ball progressively less in each of his five NFL seasons in part because the team worried about keeping him healthy. Jackson only played in five games last year because of fractured ribs and only scored one touchdown. He hopes he can go back to being extremely productive in the team's new offense with larger players creating mismatches for their opponents. "I'm challenging myself to be able to play every position," said Jackson, who's been hinting all offseason that he could be lining up in the backfield as well. "There might be a play or a different position where I normally would not line up or be in, but the leeway of the offense gives us the opportunity to go inside and outside and things like that, so I'm taking advantage of the opportunity to learn the whole offense and be in different spaces throughout the game."
Twelve of the team's receivers on the roster are 6-foot-1 or taller, including WRs Arrelious Benn (6-foot-6), Greg Salas (6-foot-1) and Riley Cooper (6-foot-3). Kelly hopes to make opponents pay if they decide to double team Jackson or jam him at the line of scrimmage. Having bigger receivers outside to block should also help the running game. WR Russell Shepard, an undrafted rookie, will have the same opportunity as Benn to prove himself. "I was on the front line on kickoffs, I played running back, I played quarterback, I played receiver," Shepard said. "So (the versatility) is giving me more of an opportunity of making this 53-man roster."
Fantasy Tip: Fantasy owners should expect Kelly to try and involve Jackson more in an offense that should cater to Jackson's wishes to touch the ball more often and score more frequently. Jackson has been a frustrating play in point-per-reception formats in his career, but that could be changing. Until we know more about how he may be involved in this new scheme, consider him a midrange No. 3 wideout.

Philadelphia Eagles WR DeSean Jackson said he is looking forward to play in head coach Chip Kelly's offense in 2013 because of the different things he will be doing. "I feel the sky's the limit for myself," Jackson said Wednesday. "I think this year, with Chip coming in with the style of play of his offense, it's really going to help me out a lot more as well. I'm going to be able to get certain looks, get the ball in my hand, do things I wasn't doing the past five years. So that's going to be an exciting time for myself. I'm going to have to be fully prepared, fully in shape, fully healthy."
Fantasy Tip: Jackson could have more fantasy value next season if he adds rushing yards to his receiving yards. He should be the top option in the team's passing attack in 2013 but could be a risky every-week starter in fantasy leagues because of his inconsistent production.
Thu, 21 Mar 2013 07:33:39 -0700
Philadelphia Eagles WR DeSean Jackson is expected to return punts, according to head coach Chip Kelly.
Mon, 11 Feb 2013 08:51:42 -0800
Since recording nine touchdowns in the 2009 season, Philadelphia Eagles WR DeSean Jackson's scoring has decreased in each of the last three seasons, from six to four to two this past season. Injuries, a contract dispute and questionable playcalling can be used as reasons for the decline.
Sat, 02 Feb 2013 07:30:35 -0800

Sat, 02 Feb 2013 05:24:17 -0800
Philadelphia Eagles WR DeSean Jackson said he fully expects QB Michael Vick to return in 2013, with the team hiring head coach Chip Kelly. "For sure I can see it. Now that Chip Kelly is our offensive coordinator, I mean our head coach, Michael Vick I think it's a no-brainer to keep him here," Jackson said. "It fits his playing style and what he's done perfect."
Fri, 01 Feb 2013 17:50:32 -0800
Updating a previous report, Philadelphia Eagles WR DeSean Jackson said head coach Chip Kelly indicated he plans to use Jackson like he did University of Oregon RB DeAnthony Thomas when he coached at Oregon. Thomas recorded 2,235 all-purpose yards in two years under Kelly being a runner, receiver and returner during the time.
Fri, 01 Feb 2013 13:42:14 -0800
Updating a previous report, Philadelphia Eagles WR DeSean Jackson (ribs) said new head coach Chip Kelly told him that he will be used heavily in the team's offense. "He called me and was very excited. I could tell in his voice," Jackson said. "He was like, 'Let me know when you're back in Philly so we can just talk face to face.' I actually talked to Pat Shurmur. He was my coach when I first got to Philly. He's excited, as well." However, Jackson has no idea who will be the team's quarterback next season. Jackson also mentioned that his fractured ribs are "98 percent" healthy.
Thu, 24 Jan 2013 14:36:09 -0800
Philadelphia Eagles WR DeSean Jackson said he is excited about new head coach Chip Kelly and is looking forward to what he brings to team offensively. "I was looking at what he did at Oregon. My little cousin is actually De'Anthony Thomas, the Black Mamba, so our styles are kind of similar," Jackson said. "What he's done in that offense as far as lighting it up and getting in that end zone, that's what I'm excited about."
Wed, 26 Dec 2012 11:40:51 -0800
Philadelphia Eagles WR Jeremy Maclin is believed to be a trade chip this offseason since WR DeSean Jackson's contract extension means he'll be back. However, in four games with Jackson out, Maclin has caught 24 passes for 331 yards and two touchdowns. Maclin is one of only eight receivers in history with at least 55 grabs and 750 yards in each of his first four seasons, too.
Tue, 27 Nov 2012 12:09:18 -0800
Philadelphia Eagles WR DeSean Jackson (ribs) was placed on Injured Reserve Tuesday, Nov. 27.
Tue, 27 Nov 2012 10:13:36 -0800
Philadelphia Eagles head coach Andy Reid said WR DeSean Jackson (ribs) is dealing with two broken ribs and is out for the rest of the season.
Fantasy Tip: This will obviously boost Jason Avant's value as the No. 2 receiver behind Jeremy Maclin to close out the year. For as long as Michael Vick (concussion) sits out, rookie Nick Foles will likely continue to rely on Brent Celek as well. With a patchwork offensive line and rookie QB at the helm, though, temper your expectations for Jackson's replacements.
Tue, 27 Nov 2012 09:46:08 -0800
Philadelphia Eagles WR DeSean Jackson (ribs) is dealing with several fractured ribs and is expected to miss the rest of the season.
Tue, 27 Nov 2012 06:28:07 -0800
Philadelphia Eagles WR DeSean Jackson (ribs) is expected to miss a few weeks with a rib cartilage strain. Jackson, QB Michael Vick (concussion) and RB LeSean McCoy (concussion) are all expected to miss the Week 13 game against the Dallas Cowboys.
Fantasy Tip: Jason Avant's role figures to increase, as he would move into a possession-receiver role. This could actually add some continuity on offense for Nick Foles with Avant and Brent Celek underneath while Jeremy Maclin stretches things deep. Avant and Celek's value increases in Jackson's absence, especially in PPR leagues, while Maclin's isn't diminished too much. Bryce Brown is an important cog in the mix, though. If he can't run the ball effectively, and keep defenses honest, the heavy defensive pressure will keep the passing game under wraps.
Mon, 26 Nov 2012 20:13:41 -0800
Philadelphia Eagles WR Jeremy Maclin had five receptions for a team-high 55 yards in Week 12 against the Carolina Panthers.

WR Riley Cooper also got onto the stat sheet with one grab for seven yards.
Mon, 26 Nov 2012 19:17:41 -0800

"I haven't heard of changes or anything like that, so we're still going with the plan."

Fri, 21 Sep 2012 09:28:47 -0700
Philadelphia Eagles head coach Andy Reid said the team will "mix and match" at the wide receiver position with WR Jeremy Maclin (hip) out for Week 3. WR Damaris Johnson saw more repetitions when Maclin was hurt last week, but the majority of looks went TE Brent Celek's and WR DeSean Jackson's way. "Damaris has done a great job in practice, understanding the scheme and what we're trying to get done," QB Michael Vick said, so hopefully, he can step in and fill the void."
Fri, 21 Sep 2012 09:28:27 -0700
Philadelphia Eagles WR DeSean Jackson (hamstring) practiced in full Friday, Sept. 21, and is probable for Week 3.
Thu, 20 Sep 2012 13:30:23 -0700

Sat, 15 Sep 2012 05:59:55 -0700
Philadelphia Eagles WR DeSean Jackson (hamstring) is expected to play in the team's Week 2 game.
Fri, 14 Sep 2012 10:51:48 -0700
Philadelphia Eagles WRs DeSean Jackson (hamstring) and Jeremy Maclin (hip) were limited in practice Friday, Sept. 14, and are questionable for Week 2.
Fantasy Tip: The fact that both were limited is encouraging, but check back for the inactives Sunday to see if they play. If one, or both, miss the game against the Baltimore Ravens, Michael Vick will likely lean more on Brent Celek mainly, with Jason Avant and Damaris Johnson seeing more work. Avant and Johnson are unworthy for fantasy consideration, though, unless both Maclin and Jackson sit out, which seems unlikely.
Thu, 13 Sep 2012 10:04:06 -0700
Philadelphia Eagles head coach Andy Reid said WR DeSean Jackson (hamstring) will not practice Thursday, Sept. 13, because of a pulled hamstring.
Fri, 07 Sep 2012 21:17:16 -0700
Cleveland Browns CB Joe Haden said Friday, Sept. 7, that he plans to mirror Philadelphia Eagles WR DeSean Jackson in the Week 1 game Sunday, Sept. 9.
Fantasy Tip: Haden is the best cover man for the Browns, so Jackson's fantasy outlook takes a slight hit this weekend. Consider him more of a low-end WR2 or must-start WR3/flex option.
Fri, 03 Aug 2012 14:16:19 -0700
Philadelphia Eagles WR DeSean Jackson (ankle) sustained a left ankle injury Friday, Aug. 3.
Thu, 02 Aug 2012 09:34:50 -0700
Philadelphia Eagles WR DeSean Jackson said players like Jacksonville Jaguars RB Maurice Jones-Drew and Pittsburgh Steelers restricted free-agent WR Mike Wallace have nothing to gain by holding out for more money. "Well, going through my little deal and things like that, I definitely found out there's really not much you can do," Jackson said. "There's no control you really have over that. Trying to force a team to pay and things like that is definitely not something too smart ... I would say just go keep working hard and go out there and prove what kind of player you are."
Wed, 25 Jul 2012 08:55:13 -0700
Philadelphia Eagles WR DeSean Jackson will give up punt return duties most of the time; however, special teams coordinator Bobby April said he still thinks Jackson will have a role when the team needs a spark. "DeSean will return some," April said. "But we'll primarily focus him on offense and hopefully find a guy that can do what he can do. We want to use him offensively as a weapon. There's some wear and tear to a guy his size ... Just the amount of running he does at practice. If you can eliminate some of it with the return game, if you can eliminate some of it in practice, he might be a little better replenished on game day. A little more explosive."
