In an interview on 97.5 The Fanatic in Philadelphia to promote the event, the two-time Pro Bowl wide receiver talked about his desire for a contract extension. Entering the final year of his rookie four-year contract, Jackson is optimistic that his agent, Drew Rosenhaus, will be able to work out a long-term deal after the current work stoppage.
"I know he's been keeping in good contact with the Eagles. So far, everything's been positive. I feel he has a pretty good relationship with the front office," Jackson said.
After setting the Eagles rookie record for receptions by a wide receiver in 2008, Jackson became the first player in NFL history to earn Pro Bowl honors at two positions in one season as a wide receiver and a returner in 2009. Last year, Jackson had 47 catches for 1,056 yards to lead the league with a 22.5 yards per catch average. He scored eight total touchdowns in 2010 including the walk-off punt return score to complete the Miracle at the New Meadowlands against the Giants.
