Philadelphia Eagles wide receiver DeSean Jackson has told ESPN’s Lisa Salters that he didn’t play as hard as he could in 2011, because he was afraid of getting injured.
“I let it get to me, even though I tried not to let it. I was trying to protect myself from getting hurt — now I’m just giving it all,” said Jackson.
With regards to the new contract Jackson signed in the offseason, he said that he’s “happy to finally get the contract. I felt with what I had done for the team, I deserved it.”
I’m glad Jackson admitted he didn’t give 100 percent effort last season, because it was obvious.
