DeSean Jackson To Teammate LeSean McCoy: Don't Hold Out

Monday May 14th, 2012

The Philadelphia Eagles are in the midst of compiling their roster, and they've had a successful offseason, minus one key cog: running back LeSean McCoy.

Indications are that McCoy and the team are having productive talks, and last year's holdout, DeSean Jackson, thinks it would behoove McCoy to re-sign.

"I think it would be in his best interest to come” Jackson said, according to “Looking back now it really hurt me more than I thought it helped me. Hopefully he saw everything I went through, and hopefully Drew won’t have him go through the same thing. . . . I just hope he doesn’t take it there with the team because the Eagles are a team you don’t want to try force anything with them or strong-arm them."
