The NFL officially retires maybe the greatest deep threat wide receivers of all time. DeSean Jackson has announced his retirement after 15 seasons in the league. He retires with over 11,000 receiving yards during stints with six teams.
PFF’s Ari Meirov reported the news via Twitter on Wednesday.
Jackson holds the record for 60-plus yard receiving touchdowns in the NFL (26). He is also tied for the most 80-plus yard receiving touchdowns (five). Despite that, he owns only one Second Team All-Pro nod and three Pro Bowl selections.
He’s caught 641 passes for 11,263 yards and 58 receiving touchdowns. Jackson also adds four return touchdowns to his total. He will likely be remembered as a Philadelphia Eagle, as he spent 10 seasons there over two separate stints.
