ORLANDO, Fla. - Some of the thinking behind the Eagles' apparent decision to shed star wideout DeSean Jackson could be gleaned from the things Howie Roseman did talk about yesterday, after he declined to talk about Jackson. The general manager talked effusively about new acquisition Darren Sproles, spoke confidently about Jeremy Maclin's ACL recovery. He touted the wide receivers in the upcoming NFL draft as the richest position group, and noted how top-rated receivers tend to fall in the first round.

Let's begin with an assumption that becomes more and more reasonable as each day passes and more sources reveal more information and insight: The Eagles are preparing to give DeSean Jackson the full Pontius Pilate treatment. That the Eagles will either trade or release Jackson appears a fait accompli, and whenever an NFL team is considering washing its hands of a wide receiver as prolific and talented as Jackson - and in the prime of his career, no less - questions follow. Jackson is 27, and he's coming off what was statistically his best season: 82 catches, 1,332 yards, nine touchdowns.

ORLANDO - When the NFL last convened at the Ritz-Carlton here for its annual league meetings, the Eagles arrived ready to shop Donovan McNabb. Four years later, the team's top decision-makers arrived at the posh resort apparently ready to rid themselves of Pro Bowl receiver DeSean Jackson. Jackson's future will be one of the biggest stories at this week's meetings, which begin Monday and provide a rare occasion for owners, general managers, and coaches to gather in the same place.

ORLANDO - It's out there now. Jets owner Woody Johnson made no bones about it - New York is at least one team interested in acquiring DeSean Jackson. But at what price? "We're looking at a number of players, including DeSean," Johnson said on Sunday at the NFL owners meetings. "He's a very good player. We're looking at a number of them. Trades are not our primary operating motif right now; we're trying to build through the draft. " Jackson, of course, is currently the property of the Eagles, so Johnson's answer raised some question about tampering.

ORLANDO, Fla. - The Eagles arrived at the Ritz-Carlton yesterday with the NFL buzzing about their attempts to trade wide receiver DeSean Jackson. The Birds continued to have nothing to say on the eve of the NFL meetings. General manager Howie Roseman was spending time with his family yesterday. Team president Don Smolenski mingled with reporters in the lobby but was much more eager to talk about the Lincoln Financial Field renovations. And chairman Jeffrey Lurie stayed out of public view, as did coach Chip Kelly.

ORLANDO, Fla. - I'm not sure I follow the logic that if the Eagles don't get a reasonable trade offer for DeSean Jackson in the next 5 or 10 minutes, they probably are going to release him. Unless there is something non-football-related going on here with Jackson that we aren't aware of, there is no good reason for the Eagles to cut the three-time Pro Bowl wide receiver loose right now. Yes, Jackson's unwieldy contract, which includes a...

JEFFREY LURIE, you might recall, agonized over whether he wanted to bring Michael Vick to the Eagles back in 2009. Vick had to travel to Lurie's Main Line home to convince the team chairman that he was truly sorry for the dogfighting scandal that sent Vick to prison, that he would be the right sort of person going forward, on and off the field. Lurie was much less circumspect last night, after Vick's Eagles tenure officially ended, when the free-agent quarterback signed with the New York Jets.

With each passing day, the DeSean Jackson saga appears to be more a question of when rather than if he will no longer be with the Eagles. A day after The Inquirer learned that the Eagles were actively shopping the Pro Bowl wide receiver and contacting other teams, the New York Daily News reported that Jackson would eventually be either traded or released, thus ending his six-year tenure with the team. The Eagles would obviously prefer receiving compensation - preferably a draft pick - for Jackson.

* Re: Eagles and DeSean Jackson haven't spoken since trade rumors began (March 20) The Eagles are making the right play in remaining silent. If the Philly sports media cares about this team they should back off and cease the 24/7 speculation on this topic on all fronts. Keep pushing an emotional player, and something is bound to happen, especially in this age of immediate and unfiltered public access. james.r.clary philly.com

The Eagles have intensified their efforts to trade Pro Bowl wide receiver DeSean Jackson in the last week, according to three independent NFL sources. While there have been earlier reports that teams reached out to inquire about Jackson, in several cases it has been the Eagles that have directly or indirectly shopped the wide receiver to gauge interest, two of the sources said. The team had no comment on Friday. The Eagles' marketing of Jackson leads to the near inevitable conclusion that he will not be with the team this season.
