Mike Vick and DeSean Jackson exchanged a brief hand shake at the quarterback's locker Friday as Jackson left for the day. He may have completed his last practice as an Eagle, though Vick hopes to see the dynamic wide receiver again next season.
"We were just out at practice and you could just see the glow and the sparkle in his eyes now as far as him being out on the field with the guys, having fun, dominating," Vick said. "I’m just excitied and happy for DeSean for the way he’s handled himself and conducted himself throughout everything, so I think it'll all take care of itself."
Jackson, of course, has had a rocky season with the Eagles, getting benched during one game, and sat down entirely for another for missing a meeting. When coaches have been given a chance to laud him in recent days, they have praised his effort in recent weeks -- seeming to damn him with faint praise, since the "recent weeks" qualifier raises questions about what was going on before that.
Jackson declined to talk to reporters Friday, as he has often done since facing criticism for his effort against the Seahawks, a storyline fueled by the league's own NFL Network. Sunday's game and Monday's media session as players clean out their lockers may be his last public appearances as an Eagle. The team has a big decision to make on the two-time Pro Bowl receiver.
