Number 10 is, without question, a Philadelphia Eagles legend.
If saying goodbye the first time wasn’t hard enough for Philadelphia Eagles fans, the second time is sure to evoke a few tears. On the fourth Friday of 2021’s second month, amidst all of the chaos that still lingers from the Carson Wentz trade, the Eagles officially announced the release of DeSean Jackson. While the move didn’t necessarily shock most people, it still leaves a bittersweet taste in the mouths of some of the Eagles’ fan base.
D-Jax has been on the receiving end of touchdown throws from six different Eagles quarterbacks during his career. It didn’t matter who was throwing the ball. 10 always found a way to take the top off the opposing defense. As a matter of fact, he was the best at it. His 45.34 yards-per-touchdown average is the highest in NFL History among receivers who have a minimum of 50 TDs.
Whether you loved his ‘in-your-face’ personality or despised it, at the end of the day, DeSean Jackson was one of a kind, just like his play on the field, and he might be the greatest deep threat in NFL history. Let’s take a trip down memory lane, shall we? Here are D-Jax’s five greatest moments in an Eagles jersey.
