Eagles

Looks like DeSean Jackson is taking up Julian Edelman on his offer.

Edelman, who is Jewish, posted on social media Thursday that he hoped to arrange an educational exchange program where he took Jackson to the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum in Washington, D.C., and Jackson took him to the National Museum of African American History and Culture, also in Washington.

"Afterwards, we grab some burgers and we have those uncomfortable conversations."

On Friday morning, Edelman tweeted that he had spoken to Jackson, and while he didn't specifically say they were planning to tour the two museums together, he did say they "plan to use our experiences to educate one another and grow together."

Jackson cited a fake Hitler quote in a series of social media posts earlier this week that the Eagles called "absolutely appalling" in a statement.

Edelman's paternal great grandfather, Harry Edelman, was a Polish Jew and emigrated to England, where he married an Irish woman. Edelman, the former Super Bowl MVP, wrote in his autobiography, "Relentless," that he had researched his ancestry to learn more about his Jewish background and has spoken often about experiencing a Jewish reawakening.

In the Eagles' statement, the team said it is "committed to continuing to have productive and meaningful conversations with DeSean, as well as all of our players and staff, in order to educate, learn, and grow."

It's safe to say Jackson was strongly encouraged by team officials to participate in that learning and growth process, and certainly it’s a positive sign that he accepted Edelman's offer.

Edelman, 34, is about six months older than Jackson and one of 13 active NFL players with more career receptions than Jackson. Edelman has 599 and Jackson has 598. Edelman was MVP of Super Bowl LIII after the 2019 season.

The two museums are both located in Washington's museum row, adjacent to the Washington Monument, about a quarter of a mile apart.
