DeSean Jackson has admitted that he didn't give a full effort in 2011 because he didn't want to get injured before signing a long-term deal. Do you believe he'll give 100 percent this season?
ksam5: "Wonder if DeSean feels bad enough to give back the percentage of his salary that relates to his "less than full effort"?"
SBA213: "Glad to see him actually admit it, though I'm not 100% sold he is going to play much different with the $$$."
Gold N Blue: "All of this talk about DeSean being selfish or overrated is nonsense. Nobody held a gun to the head of Philly's management and forced them to sign this deal. They paid DeSean what they thought it was worth to have him around for the next 5 years, and I am sure they took his motivational issues into consideration when they drew up the contract. "
runjet1: "Why would you put yourself at risk of potential career ending injuries w/o some sort of LT deal? I dont get why people are not more supportive. Sure, I can get fired if i dont do my job (i'm not a union member) but I also dont risk a career ending injury b/c of my job!"
BoBikesBama: "why did he bother saying this? that's what I don't understand"
