There has been constant speculation on who the perfect quarterback would be for the fast-paced offensive system of new Eagles coach Chip Kelly.
But there is little speculation on who the ideal receiver would be in Kelly's system — DeSean Jackson.
Jackson was making the rounds at the media center Friday, speaking publicly for the first time since his season ended with a rib injury Nov. 26.
"I'm very excited about the new opportunity, just watching him with the things he's done at Oregon and his offensive style," Jackson said. "I think he's been able to come in and give the NFL a different look and throw defenses off guard. I'm excited to go out there and do my thing.
"I think the sky's the limit, honestly."
Jackson said he spoke to Kelly after he got hired, and while Kelly didn't mention specific ways that he would be used, Jackson said it would be similar to De'Anthony Thomas, who's a running back at Oregon. But Thomas is so versatile that he is used in so many different ways. And Jackson said that will be him under Kelly. That could include more runs or short slant routes that allow him to run.
