Another day has passed and wide receiver DeSean Jackson remains in Philadelphia. But, for sure, Jackson's situation in Philly is not copacetic and could end in a trade or flat-out release at any moment in the coming weeks.
An unnamed source told the New York Daily News this past weekend: "The Eagles are trading or cutting [Jackson]. That’s a fact. They don’t want him.”
The latest team to enter the sweepstakes for Philly's controversial receiver are the New York Jets as owner Woody Johnson said on Sunday that his team was in "win-now mode."
“We’re looking at a number of players, including DeSean,” Johnson told the New York Daily News. “He’s a very good player, but we’re looking at a number of them.
"I’m not going to use the word ‘patient’ anymore. We want to do it now. Our job is to perform for our audience and that’s what we want to do.”
