DeSean Jackson said that the Eagles are "going to have to do something" in terms of his contract during an appearance on the "T.Ocho Show" that is scheduled to air tonight at 10 p.m. on Versus.

The Eagles wide receiver was interviewed via satellite by Bengals receivers -- and stars of their own show -- Terrell Owens and Chad Ochocinco, and was asked about getting a new contract.

"This is like my third year. I officially have one year left," Jackson said in a preview clip. "We've talked so far with my agent, Drew [Rosenhaus], and the Eagles. We're just seeing how it can go now. The 30-percent rule, the [collective bargaining agreement] and all that, and the new year coming up next year and us being locked out, there's a lot of ins and outs that go into it.

"T.O., man, I'm going to set the bar for you. I'm going to try and get the most I can and I'm going to set it high for you."

Owens, a former Eagles receiver, replied, "I wish you the best."

Jackson continued by saying, "It is what it is, but they're going to have to do something, because the way I'm out there putting it in something's got to happen, man."

The third-year receiver is coming off his best performance of the season when he caught four passes for 210 yards and scored a scintillating 91-yard touchdown against the Cowboys. Jackson's backward flop into the end zone, however, resulted in a unsportsmanlike personal foul and was criticized by many from across the NFL.

For the season, he has 42 catches for 972 yards and six touchdowns.
