Philadelphia Eagles wide receiver DeSean Jackson may not be working out with his teammates during the lockout, but he told 97.5 The Phanatic Sunday that he's staying in Pro Bowl shape thanks to his long-time coaches on the West coast.
"I’m working out with my coaches, the coaches who have been training me since I was a little, young kid," said Jackson, who grew up in Long Beach, Calif. "I’ve just been really trying to stay active in the community. I can’t really sit around and wait out the lockout. I definitely need to keep myself in great shape and do everything I need to do as an athlete to be ready when the lockout is over."
Jackson said he has been in regular contact with his teammates who have stayed to work out in the Philadelphia area.
