One year after signing a five-year, $47-million extension with the Philadelphia Eagles, wide receiver DeSean Jackson has parted ways with agent Drew Rosenhaus, according to Philadelphia Magazine's Tim McManus.
Rosenhaus had represented Jackson since November 2009, the receiver's second season. Their split is "partly over money" that Rosenhaus feels Jackson owes him and has not yet paid, according to the report.
Jackson, who made 45 receptions for 700 yards and two touchdowns in 11 games last season, is set to make $6.75 million next season, and could be forced to restructure his deal when its annual value jumps to $10.25 million in 2014.
From the report:
Jackson has not yet started the process of finding a new agent. From Jackson’s view, there is not a sense of urgency to find one immediately. And there is still a line of communication open between Rosenhaus and Jackson, leaving room for the possibility of a reconciliation.
It is possible that Jackson will need an agent sooner than many realize.The way his current deal is structured, the Eagles essentially committed to Jackson for two seasons, paying him $18 million over that time. The rest of the contract is basically filled with option years, and they come at a steep price.
