Philadelphia Eagles wide-receiver DeSean Jackson hasn't asked for a new contract, according to the Eagles head coach Chip Kelly.
The revelation came Wednesday when Kelly's NFC coaching breakfast became an investigation into the current situation regarding Jackson and his career with the Eagles.
Jackson had a career season in 2013 with the Eagles as he gained 1,332 yards receiving, and he equalled his touchdown record tally of nine TD's in a season.
The wide-out has a high salary because of his top calibre status, and currently he's in the third season of a five-year deal.
He is about to make $10.5 million in 2014 and that is one of the main reasons why rumors had started to spread that the Eagles may trade or even release Jackson, which now they won't.
Speaking Wednesday, Kelly says that the team didn't want to lose him but he did reveal that the receiver had failed to ask for a new deal.
"He didn't ask for a new contract,'' Kelly told USA Today. "I think he was asked the question in the locker room post-game (season finale). But DeSean never came to me, Howie or anybody saying he wanted a new contract."
