• Rich Hofmann: DeSean returning punts for Eagles? Bad idea

    Coach Andy Reid was also asked about whether or not Jackson would be returning punts. Jackson has a career average of 10.6 yards per return and he has taken four punts back for touchdowns over the course of his career. So that's what you want from Jackson? He is not a big man, he is already on the field for about 90 percent of the Eagles' offensive plays, and he has a concussion history. Jackson said he was ready to do whatever the team asked of him and special teams coach Bobby April sounded like he was prepared to go that way, but coach Andy Reid said he was “not necessarily” ready to put Jackson back in that role at the moment.
