Sources: Eagles to franchise WR DeSean Jackson

Philadelphia Inquirer - [Full Article]

The Eagles are going to franchise DeSean Jackson. They will not let their Pro Bowl receiver - whose contract is set to expire - walk without getting something in return, according to NFL sources.

So that means the Eagles will do one of three things before March 5: They will franchise Jackson and keep him for the 2012 season, they will franchise and then trade him, or they will agree to a contract extension with the 25-year-old, an unlikely proposition at this point.
