Jackson misses team meeting, will sit for Eagles

PHILADELPHIA (The Phanatic Magazine) - Disgruntled wide receiver DeSean Jackson missed a team meeting Saturday and will be inactive for the team's game with Arizona.

According to Tim McManus of 97.5 The Fanatic, Jackson slept through his alarm clock and showed up as the meeting ended, angering head coach Andy Reid. Jackson was also reportedly late to a meeting last Saturday as well.

Jackson is in the final year of his rookie contract that will pay him $600,000 and has been in search of a new blockbuster deal but has had a disappointing season on the field thus far, pulling in 29 receptions for 503 yards and two touchdowns.

As a punt returner the dynamic Jackson has been even worse, returning just nine for a dismal 3.7 average including a key fumble last week that turned the momentum toward Chicago.
