    Desean Jackson

    My favorite player in the league so I decided to do a little research on how he's been doing.

    per Philly.com
    The best player in Eagles camp, through a week and change of full-squad workouts, has been No. 10.

    per Lesean McCoy

    He's by far the best wide receiver I've ever played with or against. I think it's his heart, man. He wants to be great, he wants to be the best. You can see it in the way he runs his routes, the way he comes out every day ready to work. He's one of the hardest-working guys on the team
    per RotoWorld
    Eagles coach Andy Reid says DeSean Jackson is "ready to take the next step."
    Everyone else in the world has heaped praise on Jackson; Reid is just the latest. Few players have created as much buzz as Jackson in the preseason. While the Eagles are known for spreading the ball around, they didn't spread it when they had Terrell Owens and it's sounding like they may not this year with Jackson.
    per RotoWorld
    DeSean Jackson and Donovan McNabb have picked up right where they left off before Jackson's minor knee tweak.
    "Can't emphasize it enough. McNabb and Jackson have looked completely in sync all camp," was the Inquirer's tweet. McNabb hasn't had this kind of chemistry with one receiver since the first Terrell Owens year. The hype-machine is in overdrive for Jackson so you'll likely have to reach for him if you want his upside on draft day.
    per ESPN
    Second-year receiver DeSean Jackson has been dominant in camp. The Eagles have a talented secondary, but not even All-Pro Asante Samuel has come close to covering Jackson.
    per ESPN
    Right now, though, it's Jackson who's drawing the most attention in camp. He's so quick off the line that no one can get a jam on him.
    per ESPN
    Eagles wide receiver DeSean Jackson has been unstoppable at training camp.

    Nice to hear on Shady. I love a guy that will man up about another player like that. It's definitely true - Desean forces defenses to play deep / off coverage. While I agree that Maclin is the true #1, I think Desean would be missed a hell of a lot more than most fans can appreciate.

    I've said before - I'm hoping he has hurt his value enough that NE can make a run at him. The though of safeties lining up 20 yards of the LOS makes me drool. Gronk & Welker would be even more dangerous, if that's possible.

    Many in Philly think that Maclin is their #1 WR of the future, not Desean and they aren't going to be able to pay both, plus Shady.

    I will say this...I give a lot of props to Shady. I always thought he was a perfect fit when the birds drafted him, but he's exceeding my expectations on the field. What impressed me about him is that he's been on record saying that Desean is a big part of the offense and anyone not admitting such is simply not being honest. That's a tough stance to take when you know that DJax is in the middle of a contract dispute with the FO, he get's killed in the media, & it's looking like he won't be back for the long haul.

    For some reason I just see him extending in the long run. Dont know why, dont ask me why, just one of those things I have a feeling about.

    I'd say they franchise him and then either let him walk the following year or maybe trade him after franchising him.

    I wouldn't expect him to take a paycut (and never get upset with any player for going for the big money) but I think the publicity he's getting will force him into a shorter, cheaper contract. He deserves some of the heat he's taking, but nowhere near the level he is getting.

    So the rumors are that Desean may hold out. At this point, I think he would be crazy to play out his contract and not hold out.
