One piece of news that has been making its way around the headlines over the past week is the reported falling out between Desean Jackson and Chip Kelly‘s Philadelphia Eagles. The San Francisco 49ers have been linked to Jackson as a possible trade suitor/free agent acquisition, leading to one take on what the 49ers should do here and many others.
NFL.com, however, recently posted a comment from GM Trent Baalke, currently at the owner’s meetings:
“Right now, he’s under contract with the Philadelphia Eagles. We’ve not made any contact with the Eagles relative to a trade for DeSean Jackson.”“As of this moment, those reports are totally misleading and false.”
