A decision has been reached. Will it be challenged? Time will tell. After months of contentious debate, the Neshaminy school board overwhelmingly approved a policy Thursday that would limit, but not eliminate, the ability of students to edit out the word Redskin, Neshaminy High School's mascot, from the high school newspaper. The policy, as approved by the board, will allow students to remove Redskin - a word they have deemed derogatory - from news articles, but not editorials or opinion columns.

The student editors overseeing Neshaminy High School's newspaper have routine summer plans. Gillian McGoldrick will work at Rita's Water Ice. Reed Hennessy wants to volunteer at the National Constitution Center. Jackson Haines is looking for a job to fill idle hours. "Teenager stuff," Haines, 17, said with a smile last week. Unlike the last eight months. Since October, the editors of the Playwickian have been battling with administrators about whether they can ban the word Redskin , the school mascot, from the paper.

WELL, IT COULD have been worse. There is no three-game death march this year like there was last season when NFL schedule-maker Howard Katz saw fit to send the Eagles on the road for 3 successive weeks in late September and early October. And they won't have to wait 12 weeks for their bye like they did last year. That will come in Week 7, just as the autumn leaves are at full blush, and just after they've won four of their first six games, according to my imperfect calculations. But then it gets tricky.

A LOT of times in free agency, it is considered a grand slam if you can improve your team while simultaneously hurting one of your top rivals. With the unceremonious release of Pro Bowl receiver DeSean Jackson last Friday, the Eagles had to suspect that one of their chief challengers in the NFC East would take the opportunity to swing for the fences against them. That's exactly what Washington did yesterday when it inked the mercurial Jackson, and that's a reference to both his blinding speed and unpredictable personality, to a 3-year contract worth $24 million, with $16 million guaranteed.

DESEAN JACKSON called getting released by the Eagles "a challenging situation to be in," in a radio interview yesterday, and he added, "easily, it can make or break somebody. But I feel I'm very tough, and I'm at that point in my career where it's not going to do nothing but bring out the better in me. " Jackson didn't discuss what he thought led to the team's extraordinary action, either while talking to Washington's ESPN 980 or earlier, in a media conference call in which only Washington-area reporters were allowed to ask questions.

There was no introductory news conference for DeSean Jackson in Washington. At 12:55 p.m. Wednesday, about 12 hours after they agreed to a three-year contract, the Redskins posted a photo of Jackson on Twitter in team garb as he officially signed his deal. The Redskins have taken a similarly muted approach after acquiring other free agents this offseason. But getting one of the NFL's most dynamic playmakers, a castoff from a division rival, would seem to warrant a trumpet call.

Less than five days after the Eagles released DeSean Jackson, the Pro Bowl wide receiver signed a three-year contact with the Redskins, according to an NFL source. "It's going down!! Burgundy and Gold," Jackson posted on Twitter. Jackson's three-year contract for $24 million comes with $16 million fully guaranteed, a source confirmed. It is a good deal under tough circumstances. The agreement was reached late Tuesday night after a day of negotiations and days of speculation about where Jackson would land after the Eagles cut their top receiver.

DeSean Jackson took his act down I-95 to Washington, where the former Eagles wide receiver met with the Redskins on Monday. Jackson flew from his hometown of Los Angeles to Dulles International Airport, where he was met by camera crews from both Washington and Philadelphia. He was scheduled to have dinner with Redskins coaches, including new coach Jay Gruden, during the evening and meet with team officials and undergo a physical Tuesday. Jackson, 27, has been linked to several teams since the Eagles released him on Friday with little explanation, but the Redskins are the only team to schedule a visit.

DESEAN JACKSON arrived in Washington yesterday for a visit that was to continue today, amid buzz that the Redskins were ready to make a substantive offer to the Eagles' three-time Pro Bowl wideout. Intercepted at Dulles International Airport by Washington and Philadelphia TV stations, Jackson said he was seeking "a new beginning, new challenges. " Asked about the possibility of playing the Eagles twice a year, Jackson said he was "not too much worried about that. Just moving on in my life.
