    Thanks for the logical response. I appreciate your taking the time.

    I also just read that he is associated with gangs, something I had not heard. I understand taking a pass on this guy now.

    oh I absolutely think Dallas would be wrong location for Jackson as they have enough resources committed to keeping Dez straight. I just think Jackson will be great value for team that is little older and have strong leadership. But lets not get carried away with thinking this is just another player. He has game changing ability and I think he could be had for about $3 million. KC would be ideal because Jackson respects Reid and KC already has game changer at RB with Jamaal Charles. You combine Jackson with Charles and you have lethal speed on that offense combined with good defense that could make some noise.

    In Desean's final year of his rookie contract when the Eagles refused to give him the "#1 WR" type extension he felt he was entitled to you, Jackson all but admitted he played "soft" that season to avoid getting injured. There was no way he was going to miss his big payday no matter what it cost the team. He had a major down season and still demanded the same huge extension after that season.

    Furthermore his game is ALL speed - he is not a guy who goes over the middle. Ever. He's small so you can't throw it up and just give him a shot to go get it because he probably won't. He's a guy who makes his yards when he manages to get completely open or with YAC.

    I can't think of many worse comparisons to Micheal Irvin the Desean Jackson.

    Jackson isn't going to accept $3 million.

    The KC defense was terrible the last half of the season. They gave up more yards over the final 8 games than Dallas did.

    Reid was paired with DeSean Jackson in Philly along with a game changer at RB in McCoy and the resulting noise was Reid getting fired.

    Maybe things might open up for Dwayne Bowe with a Desean Jackson on the field?

    thats what Jackson brings (beside the ridiculous 60 catches for 1st downs) is he opens the field. However Alex Smith is more of bus driver so he would pull some of Jacksons numbers down. From a pure statistically view, Carolina would produce biggest numbers for Jackson and that may be were he goes to max. his next contract. All I know is the Eagles are much much less weaker team today.

    That is exactly what Adam Schefter reported.

    He isn't the only receiver to have 60 catches for first downs. His 60 ranked 13th last year.

    The Eagles had Jeremy Maclin on the field, too when Reid was their coach. He got fired.

    I'm not saying Jackson isn't good, but there are limits to the impact a good receiver brings to a team.

    I am not aware of that. I thought he was just causing locker room problems. Murderers? What?.........And like I said in the first post. I dont think we should, I was just saying that "headaches" should not be the sole reason we dont get a player.

    Yes to his skill set.

    No to the person he is and the money he wants.

    This story broke a very short time before the Eagles cut him loose. I don't want this guy any where near the Dallas Cowboys.
    ------------------------

    Jackson was, however, associated with Theron Shakir, one of the two men charged with the murder. Along with co-defendant Marques Binns, Shakir is a purported member of the Crips. In addition, Shakir, known as "T-Ron," is a rapper who recorded for Jaccpot Records, a label owned by Jackson. The two were close enough that they appear together frequently in photographs -- including pictures posted by Jackson to Instagram while Shakir sat in jail awaiting trial for the teen's execution.
