Would-be free agent wide receiver DeSean Jackson was franchise tagged today by the Eagles.
Jackson was one of the best free agent wideouts heading into this offseason. Fellow WR’s Vincent Jackson and Marques Colston are two fantastic options as of right now.
Ever since DeSean has been in the NFL, he has been a pivotal part of the Eagles team. He is lethal on fly routes, as he can outrun most cornerbacks. He is also a scary punt returner.
The Eagles will have Jackson for at least one more season. They have a full year to evaluate his current and future value, also.
Jackson will receive $9.4 Million this season.
