The Philadelphia Daily News reports the NFL lockout has delayed what presumably would have been a contract extension for Eagles wide receiver DeSean Jackson, although Jackson said he will let agent Drew Rosenhaus handle all that when it is allowed.
“I know Drew has a plan and that’s the biggest thing, because we really don’t know when the lockout is going to end,” he said. “Drew has been keeping me patient and motivating me and trying not to have me focus on my contract. That’s’ why I have him, so he can do his job and do what he needs to do, so me, as a player can feel confident and know he will do the best thing possible for me. I just really pray and hope that he works it out. I believe in him and know he can work it out for me. That’s why he’s Drew Rosenhaus. He gets paid to do what he needs to do. And that’s’ why in my eyes he’s one of the best.”
Asked whether the deal was simply a formality at this point, Jackson stressed that Rosenhaus “will work it out … I know he’s been keeping in good contact with the Eagles. So far, everything’s been positive. I feel he has a pretty good relationship with the front office.”
