Jackson staying in Philly?

Philadelphia, PA (SportsNetwork.com) - The ongoing situation involving the Philadelphia Eagles and wide receiver DeSean Jackson took another twist Tuesday.

After meeting with Eagles coach Chip Kelly on Monday, Jackson reportedly might remain in Philadelphia and won't be either traded or released by the club.

The Philadelphia Inquirer cited a source close to the situation as saying Jackson called a few teammates Tuesday to inform them that he was staying with the Eagles.

Speculation has been rampant recently that the Eagles were trying to trade Jackson. The Inquirer had reported that the club was hoping to acquire a third-round pick in return for the receiver or release him if a trade could not develop.

Jackson is coming off his best season with the Eagles, setting career highs with 82 receptions and 1,332 yards. He also tied a career best with nine touchdown catches.

The 27-year-old California product has caught 356 passes for 6,117 yards with 32 touchdowns in his six-year career.
