    After a tumultuous off-season, the Philadelphia Eagles parted ways with popular Pro Bowl wide receiver DeSean Jackson Friday.

    "After careful consideration this offseason, Eagles decide to part ways with DeSean Jackson, the team tweeted. "The team informed him of his release today."

    By releasing, rather than trading the 27-year-old, the Eagles get nothing in return for their leading receiver from last season.

    Jackson, a second round pick of the Eagles in the 2008 NFL Draft, recorded 356 catches for 6,117 yards in his six seasons in Philly.

    In his six seasons with the Birds, D-Jax became one of the most popular Eagles with No. 10 jerseys popping up around Lincoln Financial Field. His biggest highlight however happened against the Giants when he returned a punt to win the second "Miracle at the Meadowlands."

    After his release, Jackson didn't mention it directly. Instead he posted a photo of himself running while wearing a "Talent" T-shirt.
