Today, we are starting on the free agent wide receivers. There seems to many talented pass catchers looking for a payday in March and the most hyped receiver is Philadelphia Eagles receiver, Desean Jackson. While he is a very gifted player, he is also likely to be franchiise tagged by the Eagles. Still, there's always a chance of him hitting the market.
+ Pure speed
Jackson has a rare type of speed that makes many corners struggle to keep up. Combined with a strong-armed QB like Michael Vick, and you have a deadly combination that made up one of the most dangerous passing offenses in the league.
+ Dynamic Playmaker
He not only contributes in the passing game, he does major damage as a runner on end-arounds or most famously as a punt returner. Due to that speed that we just talked about, he is an endzone threat every time he gets his hands on the ball.
- Bouts of Immaturity
It sounds petty, but it's sadly true. The tone was set in his rookie year when he streaked across the field towards the endzone, only to toss the ball away before he crossed the goaline, costing the team a touchdown. Afterwards, this stuff would just keep happening, whether it was by way of a stupid taunting penalty or refusing to go after tough passes because of hs contract situation. It makes you wonder if he is a headcase like another talented speedster. If the Jaguars plan on throwing money at this guy, they better make sure that his head is in the game and not in his backside. Or else you're going end up with a season-long temper tantrum in the next 4 or 5 yearsTags: Desean Jackson, Football, Jacksonville, Jacksonville Jaguars, Jaguars, Michael Vick, NFL, Philadelphia Eagles
