DeSean Jackson Reacts To Fitzgerald’s Record ContractBREAKING NEWS, Eagles, News, Wide Receivers Sunday, August 21st, 2011
How do you think Eagles wide receiver DeSean Jackson feels about Larry Fitzgerald gets a eight-year deal for $120 million with $50 million dollars of guaranteed. I know Fitzgerald might be the best wide receiver in football and I know that the NFL is a passing league, but
Jackson couldn’t help but say something about Fitzgerald getting a boat load of money: “Congrats to my Big bro LarryFitzgerald!! Well deserved.. Wideouts ballin!!”
DeSean knows he isn’t going to get a deal in Fitzgerald’s ball park, but he has been on the same Pro Bowl team with him, the last couple of years. Say what you will about Jackson’s limitations, they’re both Pro Bowlers and he has to benefit from the money that Fitzgerald got.
That was an eye-popping contract for a wide receiver. In fact it’s a franchise quarterback’s contract. The deal averages about $15 million dollars per year. That moves the ball up higher.
I could hear Drew Rosenhaus telling Joe Banner or Howie Roseman, Jackson is surely worth at least three-quarters of what Fitzgerald is worth.
