The Facts: Jackson’s futures with the team is uncertain and GM Howie Roseman has said the Eagles want to get younger and faster and healthier. Jackson fits only one of those three criteria -- and he has a contract that make it difficult for the Eagles to trade or release him. “When you talk about the wide receiver position as a whole, we’re always going to look for playmakers,’’ Roseman said Tuesday. "We’re always going to look for guys that can help [Doug Pederson] and can help Carson [Wentz]. And we’ll figure out how we’re going to fit everything into the puzzle.’’
Diehards Line: The Eagles traded for the speedy Jackson last March. But the 33-year old injured his hamstring in the team’s second game. “We’re trying to balance," Roseman explained. “We have good players who are not 23 and 24 years old. When you look at who’s winning, and even when we won [in 2017], you’re going to have players that are still in their prime that are 29 or 30 or 30-plus that can still contribute. ..." We'll be watching to see if Jackson is one of those as the season draws nearer.
