DeSean's 'Field of Dreams'


It looks like Eagles Pro Bowl wide receiver DeSean Jackson has found a new league to play in during the NFL lockout -- the National Corn League.

In a new spoof video from comedy website Funny or Die, Jackson and a slew of other NFL players put a new spin on the classic Kevin Costner baseball movie "Field of Dreams" and poke some fun at the ongoing NFL lockout.

The video, which has also been in heavy rotation on ESPN's SportsCenter today, features some heavy hitters from Hollywood (Taylor Lautner, Dennis Haysbert, Ray Liotta, and a cameo by Costner) and from the gridiron (Ray Lewis, Tony Gonzalez, Dwight Freeney).

Jackson -- wearing a No. 32 jersey -- makes his appearance at about the one minute, 40 second mark of the video, and gets a pretty chuckle-worthy line. The video is embedded below.
