    Eagles' Pro Bowl wide receiver DeSean Jackson may have just sparked a war of words after revealing how he feels about former Eagle quarterback Donovan McNabb being traded to the Redskins, reported ESPN.com.

    Jackson who will appear on the cover and in the May 10 issue of The Sporting News magazine, said he was “very happy with the decision” by the Eagles to trade McNabb to the Redskins last month. Jackson also said: “I don't think we lost anything, even with McNabb being gone.”

    McNabb addressed Jackson’s comments during a press conference at the Redskins voluntary minicamp over the weekend.

    “It's so wild when people get to talking when you're not there, but when you're there everybody loves you,” McNabb said.

    “So I guess people will go deeper into it than I will. I'm a Redskin, no longer an Eagle. I had 11 great years and I'm moving on with my life, so whoever may say things when I'm gone, more power to them, but it's not making you look like a bigger man.”

    McNabb and Jackson will get a chance to see each other face to face when the Skins visit Philly on Oct. 3.

    McNabb spent 11 seasons with the Eagles. He was traded to the Washington Redskins on Easter Sunday.
