Any tiny chance we had to get him probably goes out the window now.
@Eagles: After careful consideration this offseason, Eagles decide to part ways with DeSean Jackson. The team informed him of his release today.
Welcome to the Raydaa's Desean.
Rivera said he and general manager Dave Gettleman will discuss the possibility of pursuing Jackson.
"That is something that has to be discussed,'' Rivera said. "Yeah, we'll have to gauge the direction we can go.''
Salary is an obvious issue for the cap-strapped Panthers who have roughly $5 million in cap space. Jackson was set to earn $10.7 million this season and count $12.5 million against the salary cap in 2014. His release will save the Eagles $6.5 million in cap space.
"It depends on the numbers,'' Rivera said. "You have to negotiate around the numbers. We'll see what happens. It will be interesting to see what happens in the next couple of days.''
