The Philadelphia Eagles are planning to restructure the contract of third-year wide receiver DeSean Jackson, according to a report by CSNPhilly.
They will not restructure his contract until the offseason due to the strained future the NFL has with the collective bargaining agreement set in March.
This deal is the same reason that Michael Vick hasn’t yet received a contract extension and Kevin Kolb earned just a one-year deal.
The Eagles will struggle with Jackson because of the new 30 percent rule by the NFL, in which a player’s contract can only be raised 30 percent in a contract extension.
Jackson has been reportedly frustrated with his contract and is in constant communication with his agent Drew Rosenhaus, teammates indicate.
Whatever happens with Jackson’s contract, I just hope that he is happy. We need a happy number one wide receiver.
