Report: Eagles’ Jackson to end holdout
Star wide receiver DeSean Jackson plans to report to the Philadelphia Eagles’ training camp Monday after missing the first 11 days of practice, apparently because of a contract dispute, The Philadelphia Inquirer reported Saturday.
Jackson risked forfeiting a year toward free agency if he did not arrive at practice by Tuesday.
Jackson is slated to earn $600,000 for the 2011 season in the last year of a four-year contract he signed as a rookie.
Citing a team policy of not negotiating with holdouts, the Eagles have not begun talks with Jackson over a contract extension, The Inquirer reported.
Jackson led all NFL players with a 22.5 yard-per-catch average with 47 catches for 1,065 yards and six touchdowns in 2010, according to NFL.com.
