Michael Vick hints DeSean Jackson could be a holdout

Ready for a big holdout in Philadelphia?

You might want to brace yourself if you are not. Eagles quarterback Michael Vick just finished a little visit with the media where his contract came up. Vick indicated if it happens, he’ll be thrilled but didn’t add any pressure to the situation.

There may be pressure, however, to get his top target paid. According to Geoff Mosher of the Wilmington New Journal, Vick hinted that wide receiver DeSean Jackson could very well be a holdout this summer. Vick suggested Jackson is “no sure shot” to report on Wednesday, something that could complicate matters for the franchise.

Jackson has been angling for a deal for more than a year. The sooner he gets one, the quicker this story will go away because we have a feeling it’s going to take good ol’ fashioned money to make everyone happy.
