Earlier this week, DeSean Jackson said he was “deserving” when asked whether he wanted a new contract.
Later that day, the Eagles wide receiver wrote on Instagram that he
“didn’t ask for a new contract” and that he “was tired of dumb info being twisted.”
Whether Jackson does or doesn’t want his five-year, $47 million deal restructured, the Eagles are unlikely to rework his contract, according to the Philadelphia Enquirer.Eagles general manager Howie Roseman said Monday that he wouldn’t discuss Jackson’s contract situation, but he did compliment the receiver on his season.
When Jackson signed his new contract in March 2012, $10 million of $15 million guaranteed came up front in a signing bonus. Jackson’s base salaries for 2015 ($9.75 million) and 2016 (8.25 million) are not guaranteed.
Do you think that Jackson’s play in 2013 justified him getting a pay raise?
