    When Eagles receiver DeSean Jackson hired agent Drew Rosenhaus during the 2009 season, everyone knew it was coming.

    And here it is.

    Derrick Gunn of CSNPhilly.com reports that Rosenhaus plans to approach the team regarding a new contract for Jackson, who just completed his second NFL season.

    For Eagles fans, the news surely brings back bad memories of 2005, when Rosenhaus tried on behalf of Terrell Owens to get the team to rip up a one-year-old deal.

    So what happened? Next question.

    But there's a difference. Jackson has become one of the best young wideouts in the game, and he's a dangerous return specialist. Also, he's working under the terms of a slotted second-round contract. Given the team's past willingness to lock up certain players to long-term deals early in their careers as a hedge against them becoming future stars (e.g., Shawn Andrews), the Eagles should be willing to do the same thing for a young player who already has become a star.

    Then there's the reality that, once the salary cap goes away in March, plenty of guys still under contract will be looking for adjustments to contracts negotiated under the assumption that a spending limit always would be in place.

    So, in other words, pay the man.

    Didn't Dallas write the script on how to contain him?

    You mean have McNabb overthrow him by 10 yards when he's wide open?

    I wish owners would blackball Rosenhaus. He's a slimeball.

    Only let him get open twice per game and the odds of any QB hitting him aren't good.

    But he has a contract. I don't see players giving up money when they have off seasons after getting a big contract why should the club be pressured in handing out a big contract when a player is still under a contract?

    I remember

    I have no problem seeing guys get paid big money I do however have problems with players when they are still more than a year away from their current contract expiring of wanting more. I don't see players giving money back after a bad season but as soon as they have a great year all to often they expect to get paid big.

    I almost wish they had a pay for play system where you get paid based on what you did for the season, if you were a top 5 player at your position then for that season you are paid top 5 money if you had a cruddy year you paid much less. Never going to happen but what the heck I can dream

    Would you agree that DeSean's play as increased attendance at the games?

    I think the eagles were putting people in the stands before they drafted him.

    I think the guy is a very good player and I don't have any issue with him making big money. I do think when he gets into the last year of his contract that they should begin re-negotiation of that contract

    If I am Philly I trade the guy now.

    He has enormous value and there is simply no way I'd want to deal with both an agent who is the biggest "wittyexpletivehere" ever and a player who has always had a knock on him for being cocky and selfish.

    Seriously, learn from T.O. and get value while it is still there. Philly would LOVE ot go back and trade T.O. a year before he went ape and Dallas would love to go back and not sign him for that final season.

    He is a great threat but the guy is never going to be big or physical and he wants to paid before he even gets through his rookie contract which isn't a horrid one.

    :lmao2: I LOVE IT :lmao2:

    Philly STILL hasn't won anything, and now they have to deal with "T.O. Gate - The second coming"

    This couldn't have happened to more deserving group of JAGBAGS! :lmao2:

    Wouldn't surprise me a bit if he becomes a REAL problem. There's a reason he wasn't drafted higher guys: he's a little Arse.

    How do you increase sold out???

    The Eagles has been winning games for a decade, not exactly begging for fans or wins.

    I like how 62 catches for 1150 and 9 TDs makes him 'one of the best young wideouts in the league.' This guy is getting so much ridiculous hype. The Eagles FO should show Rosenhaus that metrics breakdown that shows how almost every TD he scored this year was on a blown coverage or when he was covered by a LB, and then tell him to come back next year and see if he can put up some legit numbers.
