Philadelphia Eagles Agree on Terms With Receiver DeSean Jackson

March 14 (Bloomberg) -- The Philadelphia Eagles and receiver DeSean Jackson agreed on a five-year contract extension that runs through the 2016 National Football League season.

Jackson, 25, a two-time Pro Bowl selection, has 229 receptions for 4,085 yards and 21 touchdowns in four years with Philadelphia, the team said today in a news release. He also has three rushing touchdowns and a team-record four punt return scores.

“We are thrilled to be able to keep one of the NFL’s top playmakers in Philadelphia,” coach Andy Reid said in the release. “DeSean is a game breaker, he has the speed and ability to score from anywhere on the field and he has proven himself to be a big threat for our offense.”
