They didn't want to pay up that 10 million and felt they could replace his production on top of the fact that he's clearly been a Vick guy the whole time and doesn't want to play with Foles. They know these boys have gang ties before the draft. Especially the boys from Cali.

The reason the Eagles gave was "After careful consideration over this offseason, the Philadelphia Eagles have decided to part ways with DeSean Jackson"

I agree with you that they didn't want to pay $10million per year for Desean Jackson.

But $10million is about right for 1300 yards per season. It's not out of line. So either they don't think they need a 1300 yard receiver (doubtful), they think they can develop someone else to get 1300 yards(cheaper), which would indicate he's a product of their system or as the reported "rumors" they're worried about his gang affiliations (too risky).

He just wore out his welcome. He's not an organization first type of guy. He's a diva. Not the type you can't overcome, but I'm pretty sure Chip Kelly just got tired of hearing him chirp and I wouldn't be surprised if he was vocal about wanting Vick to start in the locker room. He's definitely a thuggish guy, but I like that. I don't doubt he's gang affiliated, hell, I grew up affiliated with Bloods my whole life and have no criminal record. Its A Cop Out To me.

I think he'll end up with the Jets. They have the money and the need.

Maybe the Raiders.

I think, He'll cost too much for the Panthers.

Where do you think?

Jets.

I have some wildcard teams I'm mind though.

49ers. Rams. Pats.

I can see a super bowl contender snatching him up.

I don't want to see him in Atlanta.

Does Atlanta have room for him anyways? Besides he would be taking a backseat to Jones and White and is beatable when someone wants to cover him.

Too expensive and probably too much of an headache to be worth signing for us.
