Eagles WR Jackson ends holdout, reports to camp
Question of the Day
BETHLEHEM, PA. (AP) - Philadelphia Eagles wide receiver DeSean Jackson has ended his holdout and reported to training camp.
Jackson joined his teammates at Lehigh University on Monday, though he didn't practice in the morning. A two-time Pro Bowl pick, Jackson wants a new contract. He is slated to earn $565,000 this season, the final one of his four-year rookie deal.
Jackson caught 47 passes for 1,056 yards and six touchdowns last year, and his 22.5 yard-per-catch average was best in the NFL. He also averaged 11.6 yards on 20 punt returns, including a 65-yarder for a TD that beat the New York Giants on the last play of a game in the Meadowlands on Dec. 19.
If Jackson hadn't reported by Tuesday, he could've lost a year of service time toward free agency.
