Jackson said, "I can admit to certain things affecting me during the season. I just want to apologize. I probably could have handled it a little bit different, but now sitting here after the season's over I can just say I was able to put it behind me and really just fight for my teammates, fight for my organization."
In addition to apologizing for how he acted this season, he also added that he would welcome coming back to the Eagles. More shockingly, Jackson said that he would accept the franchise tag, which is the exact opposite of the long-term deal he is seeking.
Is this enough to save Desean Jackson’s career as an Eagle? We will see but, for now, it is a good start.
