As he graciously met the media on Thursday to talk about his new contract with the Philadelphia Eagles, the wide receiver was quick to point out that the tumultuous 2011 campaign -- for both the Eagles as well as himself -- is over. "Last year was last year. Regardless of the stats and the numbers I put up, I still felt I wasnt too far off with my average per year and all that," Jackson said. "Even when everyone else can say its a bad year, I was still 40 yards from 1,000. I dont really like to get caught up in that stuff. I still want to go out and play with the edge that Im still the best receiver in the NFL." Jackson agreed to a five-year contract on Wednesday, worth $51 million. This comes after a season in which he held out of training camp because he wanted an extension and let the contract situation affect him. He was deactivated for a game for being late for a team meeting, dropped more passes than usual and his production dropped. He finished with 961 yards and four touchdowns. "I live my life to be prepared for any given situation that it is at any given time. I never thought once that I might be here because Ive always felt confident in my skills and what I can do," Jackson said. "I just really wanted to tighten up and not necessarily prove to everybody but just show them what I can do." The Eagles stumbled out off the gate last season, opening 4-8. miracurl pro babyliss. They rallied with four consecutive wins to close the year, but even in the mediocre NFC East, where the New York Giants won the division at 9-7, the flurry wasnt enough to save Philadelphias season. But it did build some momentum for 2012, and the Eagles have tried to maintain that through the off-season. Earlier this week, Philadelphia signed defensive end Trent Cole to a four-year contract extension through 2017, as well as offensive tackle Todd Herremans to a three-year contract extension through 2016. "Its good to see players stick with the team," Jackson said. "Trents a great player and Todds a great player. Any time you see players like that get extended, its really a great thing. It shows the Eagles front office is appreciative of the players whove been here and weve been through the ups and downs. Thats really the only thing I can take out of that. "I see the future and I see the light at the end of the tunnel, and thats the Super Bowl." Jackson, 25, has career totals of 229 receptions, 4,085 yards and 21 touchdowns in four years as an Eagle after being drafted out of Cal. He also has three rushing scores and a franchise-record four punt return touchdowns, as well. He was named to the Pro Bowl following the 2009 and 2010 seasons, and is one of five players in NFL history to at least 900 yards receiving in each of his four seasons. ' ' '
