DeSean Jackson to report to camp ‘really soon’

The holdout being staged by Philly’s electrifying playmaker may be over as fast as it began.

A team official told CSNhilly.com that wideout DeSean Jackson is expected to report to Eagles training camp within the next few days.

“It’ll be really soon,” the official said.

How soon is really soon? A source confided to 6 ABC in Philadelphia that D-Jax will show up to Lehigh either Monday or Tuesday.

Thus far, Jackson has missed four days of camp as he is displeased with the lack of a new contract. The Eagles reportedly tried to extend an olive branch to Jackson in the form of a new deal, but he declined.

In fact, money is the only reason why he’s rejoining the team in the first place. Jackson stands to accrue a $30,000 fine for each day he misses, and won’t be able to become a free agent after the season if the absences keep piling up.
