DeSean Jackson was asked today about his tweeted congrats to Larry Fitzgerald, for the Arizona wideout's new $120 million, 8-year deal. Jackson said he had no agenda other than being happy for Fitzgerald.

"That's not my deal; I'm not looking into it. It is what it is. He got a good contract, so of course, that's a good friend of my, so I congratulated him," the Eagles' fourth-year wideout said.

Asked if he sees himself on a par with Fitzgerald, Jackson, scheduled to make about $600,000 this year in the final seaon of his rookie deal, said: "The things he's done, he's been in the league, of course, longer than me, this is his third deal ... There's really no comparison of the type of receivers we are, he's a totally different receiver than I am. We don't compare, receiverwise."

Asked if he and agent Drew Rosenhaus are any closer to getting a deal done, Jackson said: "We don't know yet. We'll see."
