PHILADELPHIA, Pa. -

The Philadelphia Eagles have released wide receiver DeSean Jackson.

The team cut Jackson on Friday. He was coming off a career-best season in Philadelphia, leading the team with 82 catches for 1,332 yards and nine touchdowns.

Jackson had a $10.25 million contract for the 2014 season, a stiff price the Eagles were not  willing to pay. He was signed through 2016.

He has 356 career receptions for 6,117 yards and 32 touchdowns. The 27-year-old Jackson is entering his seventh season.
