The Philadelphia Eagles made one of the more surprising moves of the offseason when they released Pro Bowl wide receiver DeSean Jackson. Since then a CBS-3 report surfaced saying Jackson was a problem for head coach Chip Kelly and not well liked by his teammates. Eagles running back LeSean McCoy addressed some of those issues Saturday at his Citi Thank You football camp.
“I've never seen the two get into it,” McCoy said. “Coach Kelly is understanding. If there is ever an issue or problem, he seems to work it out.”
McCoy was also very surprised by the decision to release Jackson. After all Jackson was coming off his best NFL season. The Pro Bowl wide receiver caught 82 balls for 1,332 yards and nine touchdowns.

“Not playing with him is definitely going to be different,” McCoy said. “Playing against him is really going to be different. It is big shoes to fill. DeSean was by far one of the best playmakers in the game and the best deep threat in the game. Then again, I think the front office, obviously, knows what they are doing. If you make a move like that, you have something up your sleeve to get some thing that's similar or even better.”
