DeSean Jackson On His Dip, Kills it at Press Conference

DeSean Jackson hasn’t always said the right thing during his time in Philadelphia. He hasn’t always done the right thing, either.

But on the day after he signed a five-year, $51 million contract to stay in Philadelphia, well, it appears Jackson has finally figured it out.

Here are some of the highlights from his presser:

On staying the city of Philadelphia:
“To the city of Philadelphia, I couldn’t see playing anywhere else. This is home to me.

On his long and short term goals and feelings about the new deal:

I want to shoot for the hall of fame, I want to shoot for Super Bowls. I’m a Pro Bowl WR, but I’m not satisfied with that. When everyone said it was impossible for me to get a long term deal with the Eagles and I’ll only get a one year deal to prove himself… Andy Reid and Howie Roseman believed in me. I gave them my word about what I can do and I’m accountable for it. I still have five years to look forward to and one of these years I’m going to guarantee a Super Bowl. We’ve been so close.”

On returning punts:

“Anything the coaches ask me to do, I’m going to fulfill those needs. So of course I’m going to do that.”

Andy Reid is a firm believer in if you come in here and work hard and help this team win, I don’t care what people said or say about you. As a player I respect that.”

Here’s hoping that Jackson’s satisfaction with his contract translates into a monster season on the field.

Oh, and if you don’t get the whole “on his dip” thing, then holla at this:
