DeSean Jackson Done In Philadelphia?

According to Nick Fierro of The Allentown Morning Call, Eagles receiver DeSean Jackson may be gone within days.

“There is no way he’s an Eagle this year,” yet another person close to Jackson told The Morning Call. “However it leaked out, it leaked out, and now this is what you have.”

Fierro added:

In the meantime, for what it’s worth, here’s what my spidey senses tell me: Jackson is out of here for sure, and long before the NFL draft too.

It has been rumored Jackson could be traded and their is a need for the Eagles to trade him now. Philly has a bad cap situation pending for 2015 unless they make a move like this one. Throw in the apparent issues between the team and Jackson and it makes sense for him to be traded or released soon.

As for the Chiefs, it was speculated earlier in the week the Chiefs could be a team who would make a move for the receiver. Jackson, 27, was very successful in Andy Reid‘s offense while Reid was the coach of the team. It depends on what the compensation is but the deal could make a lot of sense. If the Chiefs are planning on spending a third round pick on a receiver anyway then why not pull the trigger?

Should Philly be looking for multiple picks then the Chiefs are/should be out of the bidding. A first round pick should also be off the table for the Chiefs. However, a third round pick would make a ton of sense if the Chiefs could get Philadelphia to agree to those terms.

It should be noted the Eagles are on the hook for the prorated bonus portion of Jackson’s cap number so the acquiring team will only have to take on his salary. Should the Chiefs be the team that trades for him they could easily restructure the deal to make him fit under the 2014 cap. Basically this is about draft picks and whether or not the Chiefs want to give one up.

What do you think, Addicts? Would you make a trade for Jackson?

    No one else is reporting this??

  • Mike Brennan

    It’s the niners

    It was rumored that the Eagles were just wanting a 3rd round pick for Jackson. So the Chiefs could be a possible suitor. I would LOVE for the Cheifs to give up their 3rd round pick for Jackson and then use the 1st pick on either a CB or FS. Or maybe another WR like Cooks. Bowe, Jackson, Cooks, Charles, Fasano/Kelce? That would be CRAAAAZY!

  • Niddy87

    Not getting my hopes up but for a 3rd round pick this would be nice. Would make us way more flexible with that 1st pick.

  • Horace Lee Madre Jr

    Jackson would be an improvement but he’s limited. He gets jammed at the line easily and his route running is so so. He’s not physical at all.

  • Hawthorne

    I would give a 4th, in another draft a third, but not this year.

  • David Walker

    We only have 6 picks this year the only way I would take DJ is if he’s released and we’re able to sign him to fit underneath the cap. If we were to use the 3rd rounder on him, we wouldn’t have another pick until the 4th after the 23rd selection. It would be nice to have him but, there’s no way to build through the draft if we keep using up picks. If we’re looking for a WR that can stretch the field, Jacoby Jones is still out there I believe.

  •'defer='defer upperturion

    I would not blink at giving our 3rd rd pick for a guy who will stretch the field. Then we recoup the pick by trading down outta the 1st for a 2nd and a 3rd….or 4th even…

  • david mcmichael

    What would be wrong with going after Jacoby Ford, if he is still available. He is definitely fast enough to stretch the defense. He is still young enough to sign to a 2 or 3 yr. deal, possibly on the cheap. Everyone knows that we need a reciever that might actually put in some effort, because Bowe just doesn’t cut it. Other recievers that we have on the roster already have decent speed, if someone would work on thier hands reliability, i think we would be good to just draft a reciever and slowly work him into the rotation. No need to give up a draft pick, especially for someone as limited as DJ is.

  • Stacy D. Smith

    Would be one hell of a wide receiver tandem. He’d have to restructure his deal though.

    • DieHard_ChiefsFan

      The Eagles need a CB, If we trade Flowers with No picks, it would almost be a wash with the CAP. Philly plays more of a Zone Defense anyways so Flowers would thrive in that system. Keep our picks and use the first over all for a CB,

      • Stacy D. Smith

        Not sure they’d trade him straight up. Send them an R6 pick to sweeten the deal.

        • DieHard_ChiefsFan

          Agreed, would hate to see him go but think he would thrive in their system, also think bringing in DJ may settle him down a bit. Philly fans are a bit rough at times so coming into a town that appreciates players and brings the noise may be just what he needs.

          • Stacy D. Smith

            Excellent points.

  • michael carey

    Has Denver signed him yet?
