PHILADELPHIA (CBS) – A day after a report surfaced that the Eagles discussed a trade of DeSean Jackson to the 49ers or Patriots, another report suggests  Chip Kelly told the wide receiver otherwise.

94WIP’s Ike Reese opened the Mike and Ike Show Wednesday by saying that Eagles coach Chip Kelly has assured the wide receiver that he will not be traded this offseason.

“He’s [DeSean Jackson] talked to Chip [Kelly] this off-season,” Reese said, citing a source close to the situation. “He’s talked to Chip and Chip told him you don’t have to worry about all the rumors that are out there. You’re here. He’s been assured, at least he’s been assured at that time [when they talked], that he wasn’t going anywhere. “

CSN Philly’s Derrick Gunn reported Tuesday that the Eagles weren’t actively shopping Jackson, but had discussed a potential trade with the 49ers and Patriots, and would take nothing less than a third round pick in exchange.

“Again, it doesn’t mean something can’t happen to where a team wants DeSean and that the Eagles—this is also Howie Roseman’s department. The personnel department,” Reese said.  “To me it makes sense for the Eagles, that they at least convey to DeSean that he’s fine. That he doesn’t have to believe the rumors that are out there if for no other reason, you want to keep DeSean’s mind in the right place.”
