    DeSean Jackson balked last month when your Eagletarian asked whether he was the new face of the Eagles. "Not really," he said, careful not to disparage his teammates or former stars such as Donovan McNabb and Brian Westbrook.

    But there is no question that the star of the charismatic and talented wide receiver is rising.

    He took part in the ABC reality show "Shaq Vs" last week. Earlier this week, he filmed a promo for "Sunday Night Football" in Los Angeles, an NBC spokesman said. NBC is keeping the content under wraps for now.

    Jackson also announced yesterday that he has signed with EAG Sports in Los Angeles to handle his publicity and marketing.
