Eagles camp: Jackson and Roseman talk; Harris, Parker, Dixon out

Center Jamaal Jackson (knee) returned to practice Sunday morning but rookie Jason Kelce got a lot of the snaps with the first team offense.

Offensive tackle Ryan Harris (back) sat out work, King Dunlap getting most of the snaps on the right side, Austin Howard and Evan Mathis splitting the second-team reps.

Defensive linemen Juqua Parker (calf) and Antonio Dixon (back) were held out of work but neither injury appears serious.

Oh, and Eagles general manager Howie Roseman (left) got some up-close-and-personal time with DeSean Jackson, who wants a new contract.

To expedite the process the Eagles should start with the deal Santonio Holmes got from the New York Jets - five years, $50 million, $24 million guaranteed.

To make Jackson feel a little more wanted in light of the team's free agent spending frenzy, give him a little more of the $24m upfront.
