The conversation of DeSean Jackson being traded is one that does not seem to end, and for good reason. DeSean's value (while fairly low- reports of a 3-4th round pick) will never be higher because of Chip Kelly's offense and the crowding out effect. Here is why I think so in a logical progression.
1- Chip Kelly's offense thrive's on space and spreading the ball around. Lets do an inventory of who Foles as to throw to: Maclin, Cooper, Sproles, Ertz, Celek, McCoy, Jackson. 7 targets is a lot for a guy who wants to see 6-10 throws a game his way- especially in a primarily running offense- as it should be with the weapons they have in the backfield. There just might not be enough ball to go around.
2- Since the offense is predicated on running the ball, blocking wide receivers are more valuable. Jackson can block but his small size hurts his blocking ability.
3-Do you really want to pay one target 10 million a year? Especially when you have so many other players to pay after this season (Foles, Kendrick, Boykin, Cox). His value isn't that high in this offense.
So what does this all mean for next year. An unhappy Desean Jackson with a less than stellar year and 10 million that would likely prevent them from bringing Maclin back if he has a productive year. Like it or not Desean should be traded.
