WR Jackson Wants A Raise Heading Into 2014

DeSean Jackson

DeSean Jackson, coming off the best season of his career, made it clear Monday that he wants the Eagles to re-negotiate the five-year contract he signed 22 months ago, Reuben Frank of CSN Philadelphia reports.

Jackson signed a five-year, $48.25341 million contract extension in March of 2012 that included a $10 million signing bonus. He earned $6.75 million this past year and is scheduled to earn base salaries of $10.25 million in 2014 and $9.75 million in both 2015 and 2016, along with $250,000 workout bonuses each year.

Jackson is due $30.5 million over the next three years in base salary and workout bonuses but not including incentive bonuses.

The deal was negotiated by Drew Rosenhaus, who no longer represents Jackson. Jackson’s agent is now Joel Segal.

“I definitely feel it’s something deserving,” Jackson said at his locker in the NovaCare Complex on locker cleanout day. “We’ll see how that plays out, and hopefully we can work things out smoothly and not have to worry about anything out of the ordinary.

“But I definitely feel like it’s deserving. I’m proven in this league, and after this past year, went out there, no distractions, and just really put it all in for my team and went out there and had a lot of success, so we’ll see how it goes.”

    iF HE FEELS HIS CONTRACT NEEDS TO BE RESTRUCTURED AND HE IS ACCURATE ABOUT HIS STATUS, HE WOULD BE WORTH A 1ST ROUND DRAFT PICK. BETTER TO GET THE PICK NOW THAN DEAL WITH EGO-MANIAC NEXT SEASON AND WATCH HIM POUT.
