Eagles wide receiver DeSean Jackson is coming off a career year, setting a new high in receiving yards (1,332) and tying a career high in touchdown receptions (nine). And now, he wants his contract restructured.


Zach Berman discussed the Eagles' current financial situation in Monday's Inquirer:

The Eagles will have roughly $18 million in salary-cap space after accounting for the money allocated to draft picks. However, they have up to a dozen veterans who might need their contracts restructured in order to stay in Philadelphia, if they'll stay at all.

And keep in mind, that was written before Jackson voiced concern about his current deal - a five-year, $47 million contract he signed in 2012.
