DeSean Jackson on his desire for a new contract

DeSean Jackson was recently a guest of the Gatorade performance lab, where he was asked by NBC about whether he wanted a new contract. To save you the suspense, he does.

"I feel I put in a lot of hard work… in the end of the day that’s all that matters," he told the Gatorade folks. "I definitely feel like that I’m deserving for (a new deal) especially after the two years I had."

Jackson was quick to note that he doesn't plan to act like his agent Drew Rosenhaus' previous client..

"I’m not going to make it a big deal. I said I’m going to be patient and when the time is right it’ll be done."

Under the rules of the current CBA, the Eagles weren't even allowed to discuss an extension with Jackson until he'd completed 2 years of his rookie deal. Now that those two years have passed and just two years remain on his current contract, this is typically when the Eagles look to lock up their young talent.

Say what you will about the way the Eagles handle guys once they hit 30... but they take care of their young talent. I would expect something to get done with Jackson in training camp or the first couple weeks of next season.
