DeSean Jackson continues to raise eyebrows

DeSean Jackson’s contract year continues to get worse.

One week after dropping a few passes and shying away from some hits over the middle, Jackson’s performance in the first half of Thursday’s game won’t quiet down the talk radio callers in Philadelphia.

Jackson was targeted on an interception early, but that wasn’t his worst play. On one deep route, Jackson didn’t even bother to turn around to help Vince Young out. Later, cameras showed Young trying to talk to Jackson on the bench while Jackson stared off in the distance.

NFL Network’s Alex Flanagan mentioned how Jackson has sat by himself all night not talking with anyone.

Jackson needs to remind the Eagles and other potential suitors out there that he can still make plays, because his actions are costing him money.

The Eagles, looking to find a new low this season, trail 17-7 at halftime. They lost to Nnamdi Asomugha to a neck injury in the second quarter. He’s questionable to return.
