Former Pro-Bowl WR DeSean Jackson to retire as member of Eagles





Former Pro-Bowl wide receiver DeSean Jackson is retiring as a member of the Philadelphia Eagles Friday and will be an honorary captain for Sunday's game against the 49ers at Lincoln Financial Field.

Jackson played eight of his 15 NFL seasons with the Eagles, earning all three of his Pro-Bowl nods. He was a game-breaker as a receiver and returner, leading the league in yards per reception four times.

"DeSean Jackson was a dynamic playmaker who captivated Eagles fans with his game-breaking speed, unique skill set, and explosive play," Eagles chairman Jeffrey Luriesaid in a statement.
