BETHLEHEM, PA., - Philadelphia Eagles wide receiver DeSean Jackson ended his holdout and arrived at the club's training camp on Monday.

Jackson missed the first 12 days of camp at Lehigh University and is still asking for a new contract. He is in the final season of his rookie deal.

The fourth-year product of California has been a Pro Bowl choice each of the last two years. In 2009 he became the first player to earn Pro Bowl honors at two positions, having been selected as both a receiver and kick returner.

Jackson caught just 47 passes last season, well below his totals of 62 in each of his first two years, but he finished with a league-best average of 22.5 yards per catch to go along with six touchdowns.

In addition, Jackson also averaged 11.6 yards on punt returns, highlighted by the signature play of the Eagles' season -- a 65-yard return for a touchdown on the final play of the game to beat the New York Giants on December 19.

Jackson is the Eagles' all-time leader in punt return touchdowns with four, and in 2009 tied an NFL record with eight touchdowns of at least 50 yards.
