Former Eagles wide receiver DeSean Jackson hangs out on Brandon Marshall’s I Am Athlete podcast.

These days, it can be difficult to keep up with all of the podcasts that are available for consumption. Some still qualify as must-see television though, especially when former or current Philadelphia Eagles are the topics of discussion.

It seems like they’ve been a part of our YouTube lives for much longer, but it was a little over two years ago when Brandon Marshall began his i am athlete journey with Fred Taylor and Channing Crowder. Since then, we’ve seen lineup changes (after all, we’re talking about former NFL stars).

Crowder and Taylor have since left to launch their pod, THE pivot, with Ryan Clark, but the popularity of both shows continues to rise. These days, former Eagles running back/team legend LeSean McCoy and Adam ‘Pacman’ Jones hold the fort down as Marshall’s co-hosts on their brand, and recently, one of Shady’s former teammates, another Philadelphia sports legend, DeSean Jackson, joined them for an exclusive sit-down.

As we stated earlier, some podcasts are must-see television, and throughout what turned out to be an interview that reached the 70-minute mark, the man we affectionately refer to as D-Jax was just as entertaining as he always is.

Discussions ranged from those of the emotional variety (his relationship with his late father) to more lighthearted takes like whether or not Jackson is the best deep threat in NFL history (he is). Four stories really deserve a mention though. Birds fans will see them as being interesting.
