The Eagles have placed their franchise tag on WR DeSean Jackson. The deal will pay him around $9.5 million in 2012. Of course, Philly is still free to negotiate a long-term deal with D-Jax, or trade him elsewhere. But GM Howie Roseman made it pretty clear that the organization wants to keep Jackson around. "We want DeSean to be an Eagle for the long haul and this is a step in the right direction to accomplish that," Roseman said. "We will continue our efforts on getting a long-term deal done with him." We fully expect D-Jax to remain in Philly through the 2012 season, although he may need to exhibit better behavior in order to get that long-term contract.
