    Hahahahahahaha!! I love it! Guy had 1 great year some good ones and some mediocre ones. That’s what u get for being associated w gangs on the NFL level. He’s an idiot for subjecting himself to these people. I’m sure the Eagles will replace him easily w one of these stud rookie WRs this season. I’m glad he’s gone fly ex eagle fly lmao.

      good quick response by DLF. you didn’t mention how Ertz value is affected. I could see a slight uptick in his value as he could see more targets as well. Do you not see this is as likely?

      I definitely see Eagles drafting a WR in a strong class in 2nd or 3rd round. They may grab 2.

      I am a DeSean owner and wanted him to go to Carolina but gettleman has already nixed that idea. I am thinking SF or SEA may be best but he will probably end up with Jets (which is not too bad for a year with Vick and maybe Geno) or KC, which would be the worst as was mentioned.
      NE would be great but i dont see them doing that after hernandez.

      Just have to wait and see.

    I think Jaws said it best – in the C.Kelly offense, the role D.Jax played was the lynchpin for the system. You have to think with so much emphasis on speed and having that position set the precedent, the hit to the Eagles’ O has to be pretty major.

    I’m really interested to see what rookie they bring in to play that spot, because they have to. They certainly don’t have the person on the roster. Not with the extra speed, elusiveness and flexibility to play deep and short. I agree, B.Cooks is gonna be a obviously mock to the Eagles.

    I’ve been wondering about Damaris Johnson. I thought we would have seen more from him last season. How about undrafted free agent sleepers? Should we be watching the Black Mamba?

    Wow. If B. Cooks were to get drafted by the Eagles I think he becomes the no doubt 1.03 in rookie drafts. Could make the 1.03 not such a bad place to be after all.

    Wow talk about a weird way for things to end up. I know Jackson is a primadonna and the world is all about him, but Kelly has a lot to do with this as well. Collage coaches control everything, and Jackson didn’t fit that role. How do you let a player of that talent go. And belive me im not a owner of Jackson in any league. But it sure looks like he is being black balled on this one. Time will tell as the story unfolds, but the truth is generally in the middle. I know the media is working this up to no end.

    I think a great fit in Philly would be Cooks, but they would have to give up a 1st rnd pick to get him. So it will be worth watching in the draft.

    Also I think that the N Y jets would be a great fit for Jackson, Jackson paired with Decker would be a good fit to turn things around.

    Just me two cents on it.

    • Slick says:

      The latest reports have him visiting Washington tomorrow. They easily become the #1 landing spot out of the remaining options (Raiders/Bills).
      We can only dream about DeSean catching long balls from one of the best young deep passers in the league for years to come. That offense would be perfect for him, with gruden calling the shots. Here’s hoping Snyder can’t resist and decides he needs a playmaker.

    I’m going to say between Riley and Maclin, Maclin becomes a top 15 WR and has the higher value. If….

    …he stays healthy.
    …if Philly doesn’t go WR early in the draft.

    Meaning I’m not high on Riley.

    Really my gut says they go DB and then WR, grabbing M Bryant type of guy in the 2nd. But if this sinks into the front-office that they just pissed away a pro-bowler and panic—well, let the Cooks hype-train begin!

    Can’t wait for the draft.


    PS anyone else find it hypocritical they’d waive Jackson for supposed gang ties but extend racist Riley with some nice cash? Either they are really nutty over in Philly or portends more Jackson news as reporters investigate. Some A Hernandez type of death dealing? Can’t see why they’d be so adamant about just parting ways.

    • Matt says:

      In response to your PS…No it’s not hyprocritical. Desean has been seen and pictured throwing up gang signs. It’s one thing to be unapologetically affiliated with a violent and lawless lifestyle and another to say something stupid (most likely while drunk) and apologize for it. After Aaron Hernandez, if you are in the NFL and still hanging with gang associates, you’re an idiot.

      • bigefat says:

        Completely agree here! It’s also kind of hypocritical to have the “N” word thrown out constantly by that side of the race and being ostracized for saying it (again probably Drunk) as a white man! But, such is life!

    Anyone else read Derrick Ward’s tweets? LOL He’s also saying Cooper is a racist and ESPN analyst are all making stuff up to get make his buddy look bad. Watch his pouty demeanor on the field, he makes himself look bad!

    With the attitude we’ve seen from DeSean on the field, I can only imagine what he’s like when the cameras are off. I don’t believe DeSean is a gang member, but if he’s hanging out with the wrong crowd he’ll be guilty by association. He’s the guy I point out to my son… “This is how a self centered teammate acts. Don’t ever be this guy!” Sitting on the end of the bench giving up on teammates…How can anyone adult or child respect him for that?

    This is just Karma. Good things happen to good people. Bad things happen to bad people. Please just don’t come to St. Louis. Go to Seattle or San Fran and destroy their locker rooms.

      Dude…who said d jax was a bad person? Does it make you a bad person if u hang around dudes that cheat on their wives? Look at the total picture to draw your conclusions and stop making media leaked reports the Holy Gospel. Im a Skins fan and im giving d jax the benefit of the doubt. There a lot more to this story im sure if it.

      • Brian Davis says:

        …I’m with you on this one. At least for now, we gotta give him the benefit of the doubt when it comes to his character. I mean, the kid grew up in Long Beach, California. If you were young and black in the 90s and growing up in Long Beach and didn’t know or associate with gang members, you were a fictional character.

        • Sean C. says:

          You guys may be right… and I hope you are. Many young kids look up to and love DeSean Jackson. My main concern is as a parent. You can never give up on your teammates, and at times I think he has. I just think that’s a selfish act, and never want my 12 year old thinking it’s ok replicate.
          He may not be a “bad dude” but selfishness is a characteristic, just sayin’!
