Sean Jackson returns to Berkeley this week, when the UC Irvine basketball team plays California on Saturday. Jackson spent two tumultuous seasons with the Golden Bears, amid an NCAA investigation and a coaching change, before transferring to Irvine a year ago. But Jackson won't come to town bearing any ill will. "My mind is not there anymore," Jackson said. "I don't think about it anymore. I don't compare teams. I'm at Irvine." Still . . . "It should be funny," Jackson said.

DeSean Jackson's run with the Philadelphia Eagles is over. As anticipated, the Eagles released Jackson on Friday after efforts to trade him ultimately were unsuccessful. The wide receiver is coming off his best season in Philadelphia, and is expected to generate plenty of interest in the free-agent market. Jackson, a former Long Beach Poly High and California standout, finished with 82 catches for 1,332 yards and nine touchdowns in 2013. He was set to earn $10.25 million in 2014 and was under contract with the Eagles through 2016.

Reality is sinking in for Sean Jackson. Sometime very soon, his college career will be over. Jackson and UC Irvine play at Tulsa at 5 today in the opening round of the NIT, and he says the Anteaters have the tools to extend their season for a couple more weeks. In Jackson's mind, the longer, the better. "I won't be satisfied until we go all the way to New York," he said of the NIT semifinals and finals, March 27 and 29 at Madison Square Garden.

The New York Jets are interested in playmaking receiver DeSean Jackson, the former Long Beach Poly High and California standout who is under contract with the Philadelphia Eagles through 2016. Jets owner Woody Johnson, speaking at the NFL owners meeting Sunday in Orlando, Fla., said that the 27-year-old receiver and kick returner was among a group of players in whom the team had an interest. The major issue is the $10.25 million owed to Jackson this season, a cost the Eagles might be willing to shed.

Sean Jackson vividly remembers the moment that shaped his basketball career, starting him on the road from California to UC Irvine. It was the first day. The first class. The first step as a freshman at Berkeley. "I was just coming out of class and there was an assistant coach waiting for me and another player," Jackson said. "He said, 'You have to come with me. We're having a press conference.'

The Lions re-signed Calvin Johnson to the biggest deal in NFL history. The Colts surprised everyone by re-signing Reggie Wayne. And now the Eagles, too, have buttoned down their star receiver, re-signing DeSean Jackson on Wednesday to a five-year deal reportedly worth $51 million, according to ESPN. Philadelphia had already made him its franchise player. Jackson, who twice reached the Pro Bowl, spent the better part of the last two seasons sulking about his bargain-basement deal.

On do-or-die Sunday, the Philadelphia Eagles did a little of both. They died, then somehow got it done. While Kansas City and Indianapolis had the luxury of some breathing room in their successful must-win outings, it's unclear whether the city of Philadelphia has even exhaled yet. The Eagles pulled off the most stunning comeback of the season ? the biggest fourth-quarter rally in club history ? erasing a three-touchdown deficit to the host New York Giants with four touchdowns in the final 7 minutes 28 seconds.

Pro Bowl receiver DeSean Jackson is so speedy, one of his Philadelphia Eagles teammates describes him as "a different breed" and "a freak of nature. " It wasn't some plodding offensive lineman who called him that, but hard-to-impress quarterback Michael Vick, who relies on Jackson (and receiver Jeremy Maclin) to stretch the field and test the limits of a defense. Jackson will be a key offensive weapon Sunday night when the Eagles play host to the New York Giants with first place in the NFC East on the line.

DeSean Jackson's remarkable ability to get behind players -- defensive backs, particularly -- has propelled the Philadelphia receiver to the Pro Bowl in only his second season. But Jackson has never been behind players quite the way he was on draft day in 2008, when he not only tumbled out of the first round, but saw six receivers selected in front of him in the second. It was a humbling, albeit brief, experience for the former California star who now chops defenders down to size on a weekly basis.

Sherman Lewis might want to go back to bingo. Or, better yet, he might want to apply for a job as the Philadelphia Eagles' play caller -- it's a much easier job with someone such as DeSean Jackson on your side. Jackson scored on a 67-yard reverse and caught a 57-yard touchdown pass in the first half, and the Eagles converted three turnovers into points Monday night in a 27-17 win over the Washington Redskins. Nearly all the scoring came in the first half of an injury-filled game -- Philadelphia's Brian Westbrook (concussion)

He could have been a Trojan. He wanted to be a Trojan. He was only a signature away from becoming a Trojan. But shortly after DeSean Jackson awoke on Feb. 2, 2005, the first day high school football players could sign national letters of intent that year, someone called and told the Long Beach Poly High star that there were reports he already was a USC Trojan.
