Andy Reid calls out WR DeSean Jackson

CSN Philly - [Full Article]

DeSean Jackson sat there with headphones covering his ears and his hands covering his face. And he didn’t move.

Brent Celek came over and spoke to him in hushed tones for at least five minutes and then LeSean McCoy and Michael Vick both stopped by and talked to Jackson as well.

And still he sat there in his locker, occasionally nodding his head.

Nearly all his teammates had showered and dressed after the Eagles’ 31-26 loss to the Bears at Soldier Field Sunday, but Jackson just sat in his locker wrapped in a towel, occasionally looking up but for the most part with his head down in his lap and his hands over his face.

CSN's Derrick Gunn reported after the game that head coach Andy Reid called out a number of players, of which Jackson was one, in the Eagles' locker room, telling them they have to do a better job of being in the right positions to make plays.

Receiver Jeremy Maclin sat next to him for the first 10 minutes, seemingly just to keep an eye out for his teammate.

Fantasy Impact: 

The issue apparently dealt with Jackson loafing during pregame warmups and then showing a lack of interest in going over the middle during the game. He's also dropped two TDs in two weeks. Reid never calls out players to the media and the fact this got out speaks volumes for how angry Reid seems to be. On DeSean's side, he's had two concussions within a year and his contract pays him less than teammate Jeremy Maclin, who signed as a first round pick.
