CBS Philly's Joseph Santoliquito reports DeSean Jackson skipped his 2013 exit interview with head coach Chip Kelly. In addition to skipping the interview, Santoliquito reports Jackson "did not embrace" Kelly or Kelly's sports science system he implemented last year.
This all comes one week after Santoliquito broke the story that Jackson was released due to locker room issues. It's been exactly two weeks since the Eagles released Jackson and we still don't have the full story. Jackson is now a Redskin and, according to an anonymous former-Eagles teammate, he is now their problem.
I could understand Jackson's skepticism of Kelly's sports science system and maybe even his offensive system at first. But after a few games and seeing what it did to Jackson's game and his teammates' games, I don't know how he could be skeptical. I don't understand.
Jackson, 27, went to the Pro Bowl in 2013 for the first time since 2010 and the third time in his six seasons in the league. The former-second round pick had a career year setting career-highs in receptions (82), yards (1,332), and first downs (60) while tying a career-high in touchdowns (9) and games played (16).
In his six seasons with the Eagles, Jackson caught 356 passes for 6,117 yards and 32 touchdowns to go along with four punt returns for touchdowns and three rushing scores.
