Philadelphia Eagles Give DeSean Jackson The Franchise Tag, Eye Long Term Deal - SB Nation Philly
After weeks of speculation we finally have some action. The Eagles placed the franchise tag on receiver DeSean Jackson on Thursday. What should we make of this? Is it a good thing?
The First Rule of Bounty Club is...
This kind of thing had a bizarre charm back when Buddy did it in the late 1980s. Doing it in the NFL right now when player safety is such a focal point…insane.
