Eagles taking DeSean Jackson banner down from Lincoln Financial Field: Report

It looks like the Philadelphia Eagles and DeSean Jackson have officially become consciously uncoupled.

According to this tweet below, accompanied by a photo taken outside of Lincoln Financial Field on Tuesday, the Eagles are removing a huge banner of a player who — though the uniform number doesn't appear to be No. 10 — looks like Jackson, the wide receiver they released Friday amid reports of attitude problems and connections to reputed gang members.

The banner has been hanging for months, and, although it was never clear who it was,  looks like a hybrid of former receiver James Thrash's body and jersey (No. 80) with D-Jac's face in the helmet.
Other banners hanging nearby are equally as ambiguous, but nonetheless the only one coming down looks like Jackson — and fans are buzzing on social media, reports NJ.com.

When reached for comment, the Eagles — who insist the banner is of a generic player, not Jackson — would say only that the banner was previously scheduled to be removed because of construction.
