DeSean Jackson likes to talk. He actually likes to talk a lot.
ESPN.com via Lisa Salters is reporting that Jackson confided in Salters recently that he didn’t give full effort last season because he didn’t want to get hurt before signing a new deal.
Tell us something we didn’t know DeSean.
When asked by Salters about moments where his effort was lacking, he avoided divulging too much information about moments of lackadaisical effort.
“I let it get to me, even though I tried not to let it. I was trying to protect myself from getting hurt — now I’m just giving it all.”
So after admitting he dogged it at times last season, DeSean again dodge the actually question.
Jackson signed a five-year, $51 million extension with $15 million guaranteed in March.
This now means Jackson can not have any moments of dogging it or short arming routes going across the middle.
He is a rich man now and the effort should be there at all times.
