Report: Eagles Place Franchise Tag On DeSean Jackson

The Philadelphia Eagles have placed a franchise tag on wide receiver DeSean Jackson, according to ESPN’s Adam Schefter.


The 25-year-old receiver had what he described as a disappointing season in 2011 as the Philadelphia Eagles’ “dream team,” failed to make the playoffs. Despite a strong second half, the squad finished the season 8-8.

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.
