One of the big stories this offseason for the Eagles will be the future of DeSean Jackson. He's due to be a free agent after this season and the likelihood of his return has looked less likely as the year has worn on. DeSean has quite clearly outplayed his rookie contract, but has said he's looking for Larry Fitzgerald type money in a new deal. The Eagles don't seem to agree.
Michael Vick however, is staying positive and says he thinks the situation will work itself out.
"I think it will all work itself out. I think DeSean...you know he was just out at practice and you could just see the glow and the sparkle in his eyes as far as him being out on the field with the guys having fun, you know dominating. And I'm just excited and happy for DeSean for the way he's handling himself and conducting himself throughout everything. So I think it will all take care of itself."
He says DeSean has a good relationship with the team and that he's an important part of what the offense does.
"We all love DeSean. [Head] coach [Andy] Reid loves DeSean. Everybody loves DeSean. He's our guy. That's our little brother, he's my little brother. And we depend on him and rely on him just as much as he depends on us and relies on us. So it all remains to be seen and we just have to take a step back, exhale and assess our situation."
