For many years, DeSean Jackson was viewed as one of the most explosive players in the NFL.

His speed alone caught the attention of many in the league, and his consistent ability to evade defenders is found on countless highlight tapes.

Jackson’s last in-game appearance was last season with the Baltimore Ravens, starting only one game.

According to a recent Instagram post of Jackson via Dov Kleiman, Jackson said, “For 15 years I did it my way!” And also, “Neva Anotha likes it!”

As Kleiman points out, Jackson holds two NFL records.

He has the most touchdowns in a career of at least 60 yards, and he is tied for the career lead for touchdowns of at least 80 yards.

Jackson was the definition of a deep threat.

Although there are other players who have similar qualities, especially with regard to speed, they have not necessarily been able to emulate Jackson.

Players such as John Ross and Macaulay Hardman have been praised for their speed on the football field, but this has not translated into long-term success.

If these retirement rumors are true, Jackson finished his career with 12,092 total yards, 3 Pro Bowl selections, and four kickoff returns.

Jackson’s regular season yardage is the 37th highest in league history behind DeAndre Hopkins, Rod Smith and Calvin Johnson.

When the idea of ​​Jackson’s retirement came up, many fans expressed that he would be a first-ballot Hall-of-Famer.

Jackson not only enjoyed great success on the football field, but also had a good rapport with teammates, as well as tremendous fan support.
