How a Jackson move would affect Cowboys
By Todd Archer
IRVING, Texas -- It certainly sounds as if DeSean Jackson has played his last game for the Philadelphia Eagles. What would it mean for the Dallas Cowboys?
Jackson has had his moments against the Cowboys. In his first game against the Cowboys in 2008, he caught six passes for 110 yards and would have had a 61-yard touchdown if he hadn't dropped the ball before crossing the goal line. In 2010, he caught four passes for 210 yards and had a touchdown.
Those are the only two 100-yard receiving games Jackson has had in the regular season against the Cowboys and that is the only touchdown he has against the Cowboys.
In the two meetings in 2013, Jackson caught six passes for 49 yards. He has had three or fewer catches in six of the 10 regular-season meetings of NFC East rivals.
The Cowboys might not be sad to see Jackson go -- if he goes -- but they have done a good job keeping him in check, especially Orlando Scandrick.
Now if the Eagles wanted to get rid of LeSean McCoy, then the Cowboys would be really happy.
