Eagles Free Agency 2012: DeSean Jackson Could Receive Franchise Tag

Upon signing with the Philadelphia Eagles after the lockout, quarterback Vince Young declared his new team to be the "Dream Team". That dream quickly turned into a nightmare, as the Eagles finished 8-8 and missed the post-season.

Young is one of the team's 11 free agents entering the 2012 off-season, a list that also includes wide receiver DeSean Jackson, a two-time Pro Bowler who has been less than happy with having to play out his rookie deal. Jackson caught 58 passes for 961 yards and four touchdowns, a down year for him considering his big-play capability. That rare talent could prompt the Eagles to use the franchise tag, which is projected to be worth nearly $9.5 million in 2012.
