Report: Jackson To End Holdout

Jeff Skversky of 6abc in Philadelphia reported on Sunday night that wide receiver DeSean Jackson will end his holdout and report to camp either Monday or Tuesday.

Jackson has missed four days of training camp in his quest for a new contract. Jackson is in the final year of his rookie deal.

Eagles president Joe Banner said that the team still has flexibility with the cap to make additional moves if necessary.

"We still have some room if there were things that we thought would make sense to do, or make the team better this year. There are a lot of players still unsigned. I think there will be some opportunities here. It could be in the next few days, it could be in three weeks from now," Banner said.

"We need to do what we do, whether its depth in case we have injuries, try to solidify that, or players who can actually make an impact. We're still watching the market closely and keeping an eye on things, and are ready to do, obviously not on the scale of what we've done, but are ready to do other things that could make this team even stronger."

The Eagles' other starting wide receiver Jeremy Maclin has been excused from training camp due to an illness, according to head coach Andy Reid. During practice, Jason Avant and Riley Cooper have worked in with the first-team offense along with Chad Hall and Sinorice Moss. The Eagles did add former Oakland receiver Johnnie Lee Higgins on Friday, but he can't practice until Thursday.
