Is the DeSean Jackson saga finally over? 

Well it seems that way after the Pro-Bowl wide receiver reportedly had a sit down with his Philadelphia Eagles head coach Chip Kelly and put all the worries the wideout had to rest.

Jackson was rumoured to be incredibly unhappy at the Eagles in a move that took almost everybody by complete surprise.

NFL insider Ian Rapaport reported that their were several teams interested in the immensely talented receiver with the Carolina Panthers and San Francisco 49ers among many teams looking to swoop on any malcontent.

But in the end it seems as though a simple one on one conversation with his coach has settled everything down.

"Good to Talk to BIg Chip today !! Say or hear what ya want !! The Picture speaks for itself !! Winner…" was what Jackson posted on his twitter account earlier today. You can see said picture here.

According to that one talk was enough and it led to Jackson phoning up his friends and teammates with the news that he was set to remain an Eagle.

The 27-year old Jackson - in his sixth year in the league - had the best year of his career in 2013 season with 82 receptions for 1,332 yards and nine touchdowns as he developed an instantaneous relationship with new first choice quarterback Nick Foles.
