DeSean Jackson fires long-time agent Drew Rosenhaus

New, comments

Eagles fans are still not likely to have much room in their heart to feel bad for Drew Rosenhaus.

Drew Rosenhaus has had a tough time holding on to Eagles skill position players. He was fired twice by LeSean McCoy in the lead up to his new deal and now he's gotten the same treatment from DeSean Jackson. According to NFLN's Albert Breer, the Eagles WR has parted ways with his long time agent.

Rosenhaus negotiated the 5 year, $51 million deal Jackson signed with the Eagles prior to last season. At the time, the deal was seen to be rather team friendly and only looks moreso after the deal Mike Wallace signed this offseason.

Tim McManus pointed out earlier this offseason that Jackson has pretty hefty escalators in his contract starting next year. At that point, he'll start making over $10m a year. If Jackson has a big year, maybe the Eagles just leave it alone, but if not they could very well approach Jackson about a restructure.

After this season, only 6 of the $35 million in cap charges Jackson will count for over the last 3 years of his deal will count as dead money if he's cut.
