Eagles Come to Terms with 2nd Round Pick WR Jackson

Jackson

With training camp just about to get underway, the Eagles have one of their biggest players signed, as the team announced through their website today they have signed 2nd round pick WR DeSean Jackson.  He agreed to a four-year deal, making sure that he’ll be in camp when it kicks off on Monday.  He was taken with the 49th overall pick, and is expected to have a big impact on the teams passing game and should get off to a good start since he’ll be in camp from day one.  Here is Jackson’s 2007 bio from the Cal Bears Website:

2007: Earned first-team All-America honors by the American Football Coaches Association and third-team honors from the Associated Press … An All-Pac-10 Second Team selection at receiver and at punt returner … tallied five catches for 84 yards, including a 40-yard TD reception on a difficult twisting catch, in Cal’s victory over Air Force in the Armed Forces Bowl … had five grabs for 88 yards and a touchdown against Arizona State … snagged nine passes for 136 yards and a pair of touchdowns against UCLA … registered career-bests of 11 catches and 161 yard, including two impressive touchdown grabs, to lead the Bears to a crucial road victory over No. 11 Oregon … dazzled fans with a career-best 73-yard end-around TD run in the win over Colorado State … added to his reputation in the season-opener against Tennessee with 143 yards on just six touches (23.8 yards per touch), including a 77-yard punt return touchdown – his sixth career PR TD…also had a 19-yard run in the win over the Volunteers … missed the second-half of the Washington game and all of the Stanford game with a bruised thigh … rated as the No. 1 receiver in the nation by The Sporting News and Rivals.com, as well as the No. 1 special teams player by Rivals in the preseason … Playboy Magazine Preseason All-American.
