PHILADELPHIA (AP) - DeSean Jackson has added the element of surprise to his repertoire.
The two-time Pro Bowl wide receiver made plenty of big plays for the Philadelphia Eagles even when defenses knew what he was doing. In former coach Andy Reid's offense, Jackson ran mostly deep routes. The result was 19 of his 28 career touchdowns receiving and rushing went for more than 30 yards.
But, Jackson found the end zone fewer times after teams figured out the way the Eagles used him. He had 22 touchdowns in his first three seasons, including two in the playoffs. He scored only six over the last two years.
Now that Chip Kelly is here, Jackson will be used in a variety of ways. Kelly's up-tempo offense features numerous formations and defenses won't be able to predict how Jackson gets the ball.
He'll be on display prominently on Monday, when the Eagles open vs. Washington.
