Wide receiver, DeSean Jackson has signed a five-year $51 million dollar contract to stay with the Philadelphia Eagles. Jackson was franchise tagged at the beginning of free agency and it was determined that he would have made roughly $9.4 million this season under the tag. According to NFL.com Eagles coach, Andy Reid is elated to be able to keep his star receiver.
Jackson, at the beginning of last season decided to hold out since he would only make $500,000 for the entire season. For the numbers he was putting out there during the past three seasons, he deserved a lot more than that. But as of today he should have no complaints as to getting the amount he deserves.
