Report: DeSean Jackson to end holdout, report this week to Eagles

That didn't last long. After missing the first few days of training camp, reports from 6ABC are saying that DeSean Jackson will end his holdout and report to the Eagles on either Monday or Tuesday. He will return to the Eagles despite not getting the big contract he is after.

As Mark Trible pointed out earlier this week in his post, Jackson deserves a contract extension and he will get one sooner or later. I'm not sure what the point was of his holdout if he is willing to come to training camp without getting what he wanted but he probably isn't enjoying getting fined $30,000 for every day he misses. Jackson was trying to make a statement but with the "Dream Team" assembling, its time to get to work. The money will come later.
