Jason Smith on his opinion of DeSean Jackson

10

"No way is DeSean worth the risk Let me get this straight: DeSean Jackson loafs through 2011, gets benched for a game, doesn't produce and still gets five years and $48.5 million dollars from Philadelphia? Were all the game tapes erased like in Spygate, leaving the Eagles without any evaluation tools? Seriously, there's too much money going to plenty of players the past couple of days. Tampa paid too much for Vincent Jackson, the 49ers basically handed $4 million to Randy Moss (though it's all incentive-based), and I think the Redskins accidentally faxed their offer to Pierre Garcon instead of the 1995 Jerry Rice. But still, this kind of scratch for DeSean is too much of a risk. This situation was tailor-made for the Eagles to walk away from Jackson before even franchise tagging him. Jeremy Maclin would have inherited the role of Defense Stretcher, and Philadelphia could have had its pick of any free-agent WR in a very deep class. They could have paid less and gotten the same amount of production. As dangerous as Jackson is, he's not going to catch more than 50 passes for you. There's money better spent." Okay, what? First of all, he's only caught less than 50 (47 actually) in 2010, and that was because he played in only 13.5 games... Then he says how we could have had better or equal production for less money because of this amazing Free Agency class, AFTER saying how Vincent Jackson, Pierre Garcon, and Randy Moss were all overpaid? How the hell do these guys get paid so much money to write this shit?
