We know some players who have been having some fun this week. With a few days to go before the 2009 season officially comes to a close with the Super Bowl, DeSean Jackson, Eli Manning, and more NFL stars have been out and about, doing seemingly everything possible in Miami, the site of the league’s final game. Why are they there, you ask? If you remember, some of them were participants in last weekend’s Pro-Bowl, but that’s been over; Jackson and co. has been at work in a very different place as of late. The explosive players were involved in some of the Gatorade company’s athletic performance tests within the Gatorade Performance Lab so that he can promote not only himself, but the sports drink corporation, and the overall hype at the media gatherings for Super Bowl XLIV. Other football players, including Cowboys’ WR Miles Austin, also took part in the tests with Jackson.
Besides going through some odd-looking devices and exercise routines that gave him general results regarding his physical health and body composition, Jackson (pictured, during one of the Gatorade tests) also spoke about his desire for a new contract while at the Gatorade Lab. If you didn’t already know, it was learned roughly a week ago that the 2-year pro will likely request a new deal from the Eagles, and he finally said some things regarding the subject: “I feel I put in a lot of hard work…in the end of the day that’s all that matters. I definitely feel like that I’m deserving of [a new contract] especially after the two years I had.” He than assured the media that he will not make his quest into a distracting ordeal, which is what Terrell Owens infamously did several years ago.“I’m not going to make it a big deal. I said I’m going to be patient and when the time is right it’ll be done.”
