DeSean Jackson Announces His Retirement

After a very successful 16-year NFL career, DeSean Jackson is finally retiring. The former Cal product will retire as an Eagle on Friday and will serve as an honorary captain this week against the 49ers. Cheers to a hell of a career. One that should be remembered fondly.

The Eagles team account was the first to report the news:

Eagles owner Jeffrey Lurie put out this statement regarding the news:

“DeSean Jackson was a dynamic playmaker who captivated Eagles fans with his game-breaking speed, unique skill set, and explosive play,” Jeffrey Lurie said in a statement. “What made DeSean truly stand out during his accomplished 15-year career was his ability to make miraculous plays look routine. 

“We all remember him scooping up the football in New York on that fateful evening in December, 2010, and veering his way into the end zone for what is now famously referred to as the ‘Miracle at the New Meadowlands.’ We are thrilled to welcome DeSean back and look forward to celebrating his official retirement as an Eagle on Sunday when he serves as our Honorary Captain of the Game.”

Jackson, 36, was selected in the second round of the 2008 NFL Draft. Shoutout to the 2008 NFL Draft. The last draft class ever featured in the infamous NFL Head Coach game. Jackson rewarded the Eagles for their draft selection by compiling 641 receptions for 11,263 yards and 58 receiving touchdowns. Jackson also added four more touchdowns rushing and four others on special teams. Jackson was the team’s punt returner for a long time adding value any time he was on the field.
