Derrick Gunn of CSNPhilly.com told Michael Barkann that Eagles wide receiver DeSean Jackson doesn’t listen to anyone and that could end up being his downfall as not only an Eagle, but as an NFL player.
“On more than one occassion, yes. Yes. And that problem with that is… DeSean Jackson doesn’t really listen to anybody. Jason Avant was probably the only guy who could get his attention. Over the last several years the Eagles have had a number of ex-players try to talk to DeSean. DeSean Jackson does what DeSean Jackson does and I think that’s eventually going to be his downfall. Not just with the Philadelphia Eagles, but in the NFL because the word is out on him. The word is out across the league on DeSean Jackson, We don’t know if he’s the kind of guy we want in our locker room. We don’t care how talented he is.”
As talented as Jackson is, he’s not a Calvin Johnson. He’s replaceable.
