DeSean Jackson didn't change; the Eagles did when Chip Kelly became head coach. The Eagles knew about Jackson's alleged gang connections, his problems with authority, and his locker-room dramas long before Friday, when they released the wide receiver. They knew what they were getting when they drafted him in 2008. So for the team to imply that his off-the-field behavior or an NJ.com report that detailed his alleged connection to reputed members of the Los Angeles-based Crips gang had anything to do with the wide receiver's release would be disingenuous.

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...

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.

Juwan Johnson said he never had a favorite college football team as a youngster. That changed Sunday. Johnson, a wide receiver at Glassboro and one of New Jersey's top recruits in the Class of 2015, made an oral commitment Sunday to attend Penn State on a football scholarship. "The people up there are great," Johnson said Sunday on his way home from State College. "The facilities are great and I had great chemistry with everybody there. " Johnson, a four-star recruit by Rivals.com, said he made the commitment to Penn State coach James Franklin during a visit to the campus Sunday.

ASKED YESTERDAY whether he had anything he wanted to say to Eagles fans at the end of his 8-year tenure as the team's working-class hero, Jason Avant emailed this reply: "I just want them to know that I played the game with them on my mind. Also that I will miss them and the city. I will always be a Philadelphia guy. I wish them the best. Hopefully, I showed them that being a good person supersedes being a good athlete. " Avant might have showed them a little bit more than that along the way, making the most amazing one-handed sideline catch many of us have ever seen in 2012 at Tampa, or concussing himself while throwing the block that sprang DeSean Jackson for the "walkoff" punt-return touchdown at the Giants in 2010.

INDIANAPOLIS - Asked where he sees the strongest array of talent in an NFL draft pool that's drawing raves for its overall depth, Howie Roseman talked about wide receiver. That assessment could have implications for the Eagles' 22nd overall first-round draft pick, and for pending free agents Jeremy Maclin and Riley Cooper. "I think it goes without saying that the wide-receiver class is unique," the Eagles' general manager said yesterday as the NFL Scouting Combine kicked off at Lucas Oil Stadium.

UNTIL YESTERDAY, there was no record of any former Temple football player returing to his alma mater to become a full-time assistant coach. Adam DiMichele can now say he's the first. The former Owls quarterback joined Matt Rhule's staff a year ago as a graduate assistant working with offensive coordinator Marcus Satterfield and was a big help with the development of true freshman QB P.J. Walker. He's been promoted to wide receivers coach. "[This] is well-deserved," Rhule said.

Quarterbacks and running backs always grab the spotlight in football. But watch out for wide receivers in South Jersey in 2014. Several top athletes are projected to return at that position and could turn next season into a showcase for their receiving and running-after-the-catch skills. Among the top players next season could be Paul VI junior Irvin Charles, who could be one of the state's top recruits in the class of 2015. The 6-foot-4, 205-pound Charles has offers from Mississippi, Virginia, Indiana, Boston College, Rutgers, Pitt, and Temple, among others.
