One of the top wideouts is now on the market.
The Philadelphia Eagles released WR DeSean Jackson.
After careful consideration this offseason, Eagles decide to part ways with DeSean Jackson. The team informed him of his release today.

Rumors circled about his possible departure, either via trade or release.
2013 marked DJax’s best season yet, with 82 receptions, 1332 yards, and nine receiving touchdowns. However, Jackson will have to find a new home.
The Jets make sense for Jackson. He would reunite with former Eagles QB Michael Vick, and would team up with newly-signed WR Eric Decker.
Notably, on Friday, NJ.com reported possible gang ties. It is unknown whether this report contributed to his release.
