Eagles not likley to extend WR Jackson’s contract anytime soon

The Philly Daily News reports that the Eagles are not going to push the issue when it comes to extending the contract of wide out DeSean Jackson:

Eagles wide receiver DeSean Jackson probably is going to have to wait a while to get the big-money contract extension he is craving. The new rules in play for the final uncapped year of the league’s collective bargaining agreement make it extremely difficult to do extensions, particularly for players with low base salaries who are looking for huge raises, such as Jackson and Tennessee Titans running back Chris Johnson. Under the terms of the CBA, base salaries are limited to 30 percent increases per year and Jackson, who signed a four-year, $3.47 million contract with the Eagles in ’08 when he was the 49th overall pick in the draft, received a base salary of just $385,000 last year (he also got a $391,000 roster bonus).
