Wallace is still working on his rookie contract, which he has outplayed, but he keeps coming to work putting TEAM ahead of himself, Jackson holds out and acts like a spoiled brat, NO, I will take Wallace any time over Jackson.

DeSean Jackson is the better all around receiver at this point. He is a way better route runner than Wallace and has been the Eagles #1 receiver since his rookie year. So what if Jackson doesn't block and him showboating has nothing to do with his receiving skills. Jackson is one of the top 15 receivers in the league and deserves to make more than $800,000 a year, and has had 3 good years on his rookie contract, not 1. He was the only receiver in the league last year with a higher yards per catch than wallace too. I would take him over Wallace right now. In addition, he is one of the best punt returners in the league. Also, I hate this argument about hold outs. A player isn't a 'spoiled brat' when he out-performs his contract and holds out for a new one, because if a player under-performs the team either forces him to take a serious pay cut or releases him. Wallace really has no argument about a new contract with only one good year under his belt.

Wallace Career Stats-99 catches for 2,013 yards and 16 TD with a 20.3 yard average
Jackson Career Stats-171 catches for 3,124 yards and 17 TD with an 18.3 yard average.

72 more catches for 1,111 more yards and 1 more TD.
