Share This Story


Star Philadelphia Eagles wide receiver DeSean Jackson plans to end his holdout for a new contract, WPVI-TV reported Sunday, citing a source.

Jackson failed to show up at the team's training camp Thursday, officially starting his holdout, and so far has missed the first four days of camp. But the source said the 24-year-old was planning to report for the first time on Monday or Tuesday.

The speedy two-time Pro Bowl player is entering the final year of a four-year contract, and it is no secret he wants a new deal.

Jackson is slated to earn $560,000 in base salary this season, according to The Phildalphia Inquirer — not a significant sum for a wideout who has led the team in receiving yards every year since being drafted in 2008.

In just three seasons, Jackson — a second-round draft pick — has become one of the league's biggest playmakers. His average of 22.5 yards per catch in 2010 was the best among starting receivers in the NFL.

Under the guidelines of the new collective bargaining agreement, players can be fined $30,000 per day for missed practices.
