BETHLEHEM, Pa. -- DeSean Jackson will report to Eagles training camp on Monday, according to a source close to the wide receiver.

Jackson has already missed the first 11 days of camp. He is believed to want a new contract. The four-year receiver must report to Lehigh University by Tuesday if he doesn't want to forfeit a year toward free agency.

A message left Jackson's agent, Drew Rosenhaus, was not immediately returned Saturday.

The Eagles have not started negotiations with Jackson over an extension, a team source said. The team typically does not negotiate with holdouts, a stance reiterated by Eagles owner Jeffrey Lurie on Thursday. Jackson is in the last year of a four-year deal he signed as a rookie. He is slated to earn approximately $600,000 in base salary this season.

The Eagles don't practice Tuesday but have 8:05 a.m. and 2:45 p.m. practices scheduled for Monday. It is unclear if Jackson will be able to participate in either session.
