Newly-minted Washington Redskins wide receiver DeSean Jackson can't wait to face the Philadelphia Eagles twice per year in the NFC East.

He was jettisoned by his old team amidst questions about his relationship with Eagles coach Chip Kelly and questions about his character and associations, including reports of alleged gang ties.

Now, the Pro Bowl wide receiver is looking forward to showing the Eagles what they cut loose from their roster.

When the NFL announces the 2014 schedule this week, DeSean Jackson already knows which games he's going to highlight first.

"Oh yeah, twice, two times," Jackson said Monday night during the Arsenio Hall SHow. "Not once, twice. There's going to be something special about those two games for sure."

Jackson said he harbors no hard feelings toward his old team.

"As far as being a bad energy in the locker room, none of that stuff ever occurred," Jackson said. "I love my teammates, I love to go out there and do the things I can to help my team win and at the end of the day, that's all it's about."
