With Desean Jackson's contract coming up I assume he will ask for Brandon Marshall type money. But is he really worth it ? I guess I am going to be unpopular here and say no. Off the field issues aside, I dont see Desean Jackson as being in the same talent pool as a Brandon Marchall or a Larry Fitzgerald.
I mean as we all have seen, He couldn't do a damn thing in the last two Dallas games and quickly seemed to get frustrated when he was struggling in other games . Ive watched quite a few Bronco games and I have NEVER seen Brandon Marshall get shut down despite all the coverage shifting his way. Hes like a young Terrell Ownens. And if you guys recall, when TO was here, even with pussy boy pinkston on the other side TO was never shut down. And Marshall is a beast in the red zone. Jackson is invisible in the red zone.
I would say Jackson is an exciting player but I dont see him being much better than he is already. And when he loses even a quarter of a step he will be MUCH less effective. I think the Eagles should have tried to make a move to get Marshall, A 2nd round pick(and maybe one next year) doesn't seem insane for a guy who will be the best wideout in the league for the next 5-7 years.
