DeSean Jackson grew up in Long Beach, attended the University of California and as a kid saw plenty of Terrell Owens when Owens played for the 49ers from 1996 to 2003. He certainly is a T.O. fan . . . to a point. "Definitely, as far as what he does on the field," Jackson said. "The only thing I don't really get caught up in is the off-the-field issues. That's what I don't want to do. " Jackson recalled some of the antics Owens employed to get out of San Francisco and Philadelphia, then finished his thought.

DESEAN JACKSON yesterday became the fifth Eagle named to the Pro Bowl this season, after Houston's Andre Johnson decided he'd seen enough of Hawaii, having been selected seven times. This will be the third trip for Jackson in six NFL seasons, his first in 3 years. In his first season in Chip Kelly's offense, Jackson set career highs in catches (82) and yards (1,332). He will join quarterback Nick Foles, running back LeSean McCoy and guard Evan Mathis in Hawaii for the Jan. 26 game.

Aaron Rodgers now owes DeSean Jackson both an apology and a big thank you. The apology stems from Rodgers' role in recruiting Jackson, a highly sought-after receiver in high school, to the University of California, then leaving a year early before he could ever throw to him. And the thank you? "That play he made at the end of the Giants game - it really helped us out," Rodgers said yesterday. Without the Eagles' come-from-behind victory over the Giants on Dec. 19 - punctuated by Jackson's 65-yard punt return for a touchdown as time expires - Rodgers and the Packers might not be poised to play in Philadelphia Sunday.

DeSean Jackson, a month after he severed his relationship with agent Drew Rosenhaus, signed with Joel Segal, who represents Eagles quarterback Michael Vick. Jackson's publicist, Denise White, announced the signing on Twitter. Liz Mullen of Sports Business Journal was first with the report. Jackson had entertained the idea of moving to rapper/entrepreneur Jay Z's Roc Nation Sports, according to sources close to the Eagles wide receiver. But he ultimately opted for a traditional agent, albeit one of the more powerful ones in the NFL. Jackson is entering the second year of a five-year, $51 million contract that he signed in March 2012.

DeSean Jackson parted ways with agent Drew Rosenhaus last week and could sign on with Jay Z's Roc Nation Sports, according to NFL sources. The Eagles wide receiver has to wait five days after he files paperwork with the NFL players union before he can start auditioning other agents. Jay Z and his group, while new to the sports world, have already signed a number of high-profile clients. New York Jets rookie quarterback Geno Smith recently fired his representation and went with the rapper's agency.

DeSean Jackson left Thursday's practice with what the Eagles called a minor toe injury. Jackson, the team's top wide receiver, has been having a standout camp. The team was not wearing pads Thursday and practiced indoors because of the rain. Cornerback Bradley Fletcher also left practice early with a groin injury. Fletcher is expected to be a starter, and Thursday marked the first day since last Friday that the Eagles' top two cornerbacks were on the field. Cary Williams returned to action after missing nearly a week with a hamstring injury.
