Eagles Remove the Banner That Looks Like DeSean Jackson (But Isn't) from The Linc


Joe Camporeale-USA TODAY Sports

If you've ever seen the outside of Lincoln Financial Field before, you surely have noticed the giant banners of Eagles players that decorate the stadium's exterior. None of these players are officially who they seem to be, but you can get a pretty good idea of who they are supposed to be when you look at them.

One of those banners was removed The Linc today. To no surprise, it was the one near the West Club and Suites entrance... the one that looks like former Eagles wide receiver DeSean Jackson. The original banner is pictured in the photo above this article, but here's a view of the banner being removed via Cindy Webster (@Cindy610).

The Eagles were quick to alert the media that this banner was not officially Jackson and just represented a generic player. There are some distinct differences between Jackson and the player in this photo. For one, there is a clear lack of tattoos present. And this player's arms look too beefy to be Jackson's. The jersey number also appears to be something other than "10", which used to be Jackson's number.

...but for all intents and purposes, I think many know who that generic player was meant to represent.
