According to Jason LaCanfora of the NFL Network, the Philadelphia Eagles will likely place the franchise tag on wide receiver DeSean Jackson and look to trade him.
If the Eagles can’t get fair market value for Jackson, he’ll likely be back for the 2012 season, so he can try and prove whether or not they should sign him to a long term deal.
At this point, it looks like the Eagles would be fine with moving on from Jackson with players like Riley Cooper and Jeremy Maclin on the team, that could pick up the left over slack. That’s of course if they’re able to work out a fair deal to trade Jackson.
