DeSean JacksonDeSean Jackson’s contract situation with the Eagles heated up on Sunday as the receiver was spotted placing a large tip jar in his team’s end zone prior to the game against the Rams.

Though the jar has several signs attached to it reading “Tips”, “Where my money?” and “Naw, seriously, where my money?”, Jackson downplayed the situation and insists he simply wants to focus on playing football.

“Man, I’m just focused on playing football right now and don’t wanna talk about some tip jar and how I accept any size tip, no matter how small,” Jackson said after Sunday’s 31-13 win over the Rams. “I’m trying to go out there and make plays and if someone likes what they see and wanna put some cash in the jar, then that’s on them. I can’t worry about what other people are doing.”

Jackson scored his first touchdown of the season in the third quarter and proceeded to pick up the tip jar and shake it violently in the air while screaming “Y’all gotta do better than this!”

Rams, Cardinals, Eagles reporting no interest in McNabb

The Arizona Cardinals have reportedly joined the St. Louis Rams and Philadelphia Eagles among the teams with little to no interest in quarterback Donovan McNabb.

Though all three teams were rumored to have some level of interest in the Pro Bowler, each team has come forward this week to deny any such rumors.

“There’s nothing to any of that,” Eagles head coach Andy Reid said of the Eagles’ reported interest in McNabb. “We’re not involved in that.

“At this time of year there are going to be all kinds of things thrown out there. But, no, there’s nothing to it.”

McNabb has expressed interest in wanting to play football somewhere in 2010, but as of press time, none of the 32 NFL teams have come forward with any interest whatsoever.
