According to DeSean Jackson’s Instagram story, the Eagles and Jackson have parted ways.
In his second time around with the Eagles Jackson was rarely in the lineup, playing in just 8 games in 2 years.
Jackson returned to Philadelphia in 2019 and in 2 years with the team caught 23 balls for 395 yards and 2 touchdowns.
Jackson’s return to Philadelphia had immense potential at the time of the announcement of the transaction. That potential was shortly realized in his first game back with the team in 2019 when Jackson had 8 receptions, 154 yards and 2 touchdowns against Washington. However, considering how the story played out, his second stint with the team left a lot to be desired.
DeSean Jackson’s legacy as a Philadelphia Eagle will be that of a big play waiting to happen. He struck fear in opposing secondaries whenever he stepped onto the field and still may have that ability, as seen through his week 16 81-yard touchdown from Jalen Hurts.
Jackson’s release will save the Eagles around $5 million in cap room.
