Over the past few weeks, there has been some discussion in the media about whether or not wide receiver DeSean Jackson's future with the Philadelphia Eagles is secure.
Tim McManus of PhillyMag.com states that Jackson is troubled by the media reports, and he has reportedly been telling his friends and teammates that he is concerned about his future in Philadelphia.
The Eagles have remained silent on the Jackson front and have yet to comment on the issue, which could lead to more paranoia from their wideout.
According to multiple sources familiar with the situation, Jackson is unsure about his standing on the team and troubled by what is being written about him. He has reached out to some of his teammates to express his concern. One of Jackson’s top confidants says that the whole situation has become “a bit of a distraction.”
"We're in the dark like everyone else," said a source close to Jackson. "Thought he would at least be worthy of some kind of communication."
Jackson is coming off of the best season of his career, totaling 82 catches, 1,332 yards and nine touchdowns in his first year in Chip Kelly's uptempo offense.

Before the offseason, it appeared that the Eagles receiving corp could take a step back in 2014 with Jeremy Maclin
and Riley Cooper
both set to hit the open market. But the team was able to re-sign both players and now the organization could view Jackson as less essential.
