Warning: Strong Language

Eagles wide receiver DeSean Jackson was questioned by ESPN's Lisa Salters last night about whether or not he gave his full effort last season while playing in a contract year.

He told Salters, and the national television audience, this: "I let it get to me, even though I tried not to let it. I was trying to protect myself from getting hurt -- now I'm just giving it all."

So if he is now giving it his all, what was he giving last year?
