DeSean Jackson Ends Holdout, Reports To Philadelphia Eagles Camp

DeSean Jackson ended his holdout on Monday morning, officially reporting to training camp with the Philadelphia Eagles. Unhappy with his current contract situation, Jackson stayed away from camp, only showing up with the threat of losing a year of service time towards free agency. Under the new collective bargaining agreement, camp holdouts are subject to a fine of $30,000 per day and can lose service time if a holdout lasts past a predetermined date.

Eagles quarterback Michael Vick was understandably happy to have Jackson back in the mix, and praised the dynamic wide receiver on Monday.

"I can tell you he's excited to be back," Vick said, according to the Philadelphia Daily News. "He's ready to come back and play football this season, ready to come back and handle his business, be the consummate teammate. He's going to come in and let his play speak for itself, come in with a different attitude."

The Eagles are reportedly open to negotiating a long-term contract with Jackson, though no talks have taken place as of yet. Jackson did not practice on Monday morning after missing the first 12 days of camp.
