DeSean Jackson believes he has done enough over the past two seasons to warrant pay rise and is confident he will get one.

The Philadelphia Eagles wide receiver was speaking soon after his side were beaten in the NFC Wild Card game by New Orleans Saints on Saturday night to end their season.

Jackson has been a standout performer for Chip Kelly's team this season, making 82 catches for a total of 1332 yards and scoring nine touchdowns - all of which earned him $7million.

According to, he is in line to earn as much as $10million next year, but this has not stopped him from claiming he is worth more than what he is currently on.

"I definitely feel it's something deserving, we'll see how that plays out," he said.

"Hopefully, we can work things out smoothly and not have to worry about anything out of the ordinary.

"I'm proven in this league. After this past year, [I] went out there, no distractions, and just really put it all in for my team and went out there and had a lot of success, so we'll see how it goes."

Jackson is only two years into a five-year deal worth nearly $50million, but his actions before signing that particular contract mean his public dissatisfaction over his terms are not unprecedented.

He admitted to being distracted over contract concerns in 2011 that affected his performance on the field.
