Eagles' DeSean Jackson Apologizes For Distractions, Addresses Contract

Philadelphia Eagles DeSean Jackson acknowledged that his contract situation was part of a larger problem that led to a disappointing 8-8 record for the Philadelphia Eagles this season, according to ESPN. The 25-year-old receiver apologized for letting himself become a distraction this season.

"I can admit to certain things affecting me during the season. I just want to apologize," Jackson told ESPN. "I probably could have handled it a little bit different, but now sitting here after the season's over I can just say I was able to put it behind me and really just fight for my teammates, fight for my organization."

"I can't really get frustrated over contract situations, or if I'm not paid how I think I should be, whatever the case may be. I can't really allow that to go on as a professional," he continued.

Jackson hauled in 58 receptions this season for 961 yards and four touchdowns. Last year Jackson hauled in 47 passes for 1,056 for six touchdowns in 14 games.
