Are the Eagles Setting the Nest On Fire?

By now I know some of you may have heard the rumors surrounding the Philadelphia Eagles wide- receiver DeSean Jackson being traded. Normally when a rumor surfaces you will hear the coach or even the general manager make a comment regarding such rumors to either put them to rest or to confirm them. But by the Eagles staff being quiet about this rumor is only adding fuel to the fire on this rumor.

In my opinion, right now is not the best time to say our farewells to Jackson. Wide-receiver Riley Cooper is not enough and with wide-receiver Jeremy Maclin having just come off his injury, we don’t know what performance Maclin is going to give, which definitely doesn’t make the situation look any better. We heard something not long ago about Jackson expressing that he feels he deserves more money, but he also stated himself that he indeed wasn’t getting his contract restructured. So one question is this all hoopla, or is this the real deal.

This is the last thing the Eagles need to focus on right now. Considering they have a goal, which is being in the Super Bowl, dealing with unnecessary drama will only be distracting. Have we forgot the unwarranted attention between former Eagles quarterback Donovan McNabb and wide-receiver Terrell Owens.

By the Eagles staff not answering such questions, makes it appear as if they want to see who is willing to take the bait and make their best offer. Hopefully by Monday, we will get a firm and official answer from the Eagles staff. Not only that, I like all of you, want to know what warranted these talks of a trade. What’s your take, should DeSean Jackson be traded? If so, what would you trade him for in return?

    Isn’t it possible that the Eagles’ management is simply trying to make a point? By scaring Jackson about his future, are they saying “we’ve had enough, and we would still be fine without you.”? The guy plays horribly in the most important game of the season, then wants more money, and frequently takes plays off. Maybe Chip is saying, “if you want to win with the Eagles, shutup and play ball. We have plenty of other offensive weapons who are happy here.”
