DeSean Jackson says everything is OK with Andy Reid
DeSean Jackson said he and Andy Reid are fine after he spoke with reporters for the first time since the Philadelphia Eagles coach laid into him in the locker room following the team’s loss to the Chicago Bears on Sunday at Soldier Field.
The Eagles need to mend this mess quickly with the Houston Texans coming to visit on Thursday, and if you buy into what Jackson said, maybe bygones are bygones.
“We’re good,” Jackson said today, according to the Philadelphia Inquirer, when asked about his relationship with Reid.
"I’m not here to talk about (what happened Sunday after the game). What we talked about in the locker room is between the team," Jackson said. "I just want to win games, that’s what I’m here for. As far as anything else, I could care less about it."
Jackson caught only two passes against the Bears as they did a good job of taking him and Jeremy Maclin out of the game. The speculation is Jackson wants to be more involved in the offense, but he didn’t bite when asked about that. Reid talked up his receiver earlier today and it would appear everything is back to normal with a particularly bad defense coming to Lincoln Financial Field. Maybe it’s a chance for the Eagles to get well.
"Teams are trying to do different things to take me away. It's just a part of football. I've just got to go out there and keep working and do what I need to do to continue to be the type of player that I am."
