Report: Eagles to Release Wide Receiver DeSean Jackson

Report: Eagles to release wide receiver DeSean Jackson originally appeared on NBC Sports Washington

DeSean Jackson's second stint with the Eagles has reportedly come to a close. 

The 34-year-old wide receiver will reportedly be released by Philadelphia, according to NBC Sports Philadelphia's John Clark, a move that will save the Eagles $5.8 million in cap space.

Jackson also practically confirmed the room on his Instagram page, posting a story thanking Philadelphia for all the love over the years and that he's "looking forward to [his] next chapter."

Jackson, who played three seasons in Washington from 2014-2016, will now be a free agent for the third time in his NFL career.  

The 34-year-old, who's best known for his speed, still has the ability to get behind any defense. However, injuries have strictly prohibited him from showcasing that over the past two seasons.

Since rejoining the Eagles in 2019, Jackson has played in just eight games due to multiple injuries. Over that span, he's hauled in just 24 receptions for 395 yards and three touchdowns.

Jackson's Instagram post showed that he still wants to play in 2021. He likely won't command much money due to his injury history, so any team looking for a game-breaking wide receiver might be interested.
