Philadelphia Eagles Cheerleaders

WE WANT PARIS JACKSON!

EXCLUSIVE

0308_paris_jackson_getty_splash_compositeParis Jackson could go straight from high school to the pros ... because she's already drawing interest from the Philadelphia Eagles cheerleading squad ... TMZ has learned.

In fact, Eagles cheer-honcho Barbara Zaun tells TMZ ... she's seen the footage of Paris shaking her pom poms for her prep school's varsity squad recently and was super impressed ... saying, "We think Paris will make a great Eagle cheerleader!"

"We thought that she had a lot of poise, confidence, and enthusiasm in her cheer performance," Zaun says ... adding, "Paris has that 'wow factor' that makes a great cheerleader."

But Michael Jackson's 14-year-old daughter will have to wait a few years before she can join the squad ... because the ShEagles (we just made that up) require members to be at least 18 years old and have a high school diploma.

Still, Barbara says when Paris is ready to don that Midnight green, black and silver ... Philly is more than happy to give her a shot.

"She is already very comfortable in the limelight, so we think she would definitely stand out and impress the judges ... We hope that she will try out for the team and be an Eagles cheerleader!"

She's a privileged kid going to a privileged kid 's school so she surely is no better than her classmates, so what's up with the wig from Goodwill?

Its sad that she's already got folks trying to take advantage of her because of her name. She wasn't good, but is the "real world" that okay. People don't have to be good at that kind of thing.

She can do a lot better than being a cheerleader for the ****ty Eagles! The Eagles have no standards - just take a look at who their quarterback is. Philly is a dump!

That was a very lackluster performance. Seriously? They just want to get her cause of her name. Nothing against Paris but come on, no star factor there in her cheering. She's a pretty girl. hehe

I think it's kind of cool to see a 14 year old be a 14 year old for a change. No mask on her face (beautiful), no circus surrounding her. And although the pro chimed in, it was a lighthearted comment and not a serious effort to recruit her. Let the kid be a kid, her dad didn't have that opportunity and......

MJ trolls please forgive me, but if you watched the video you know that Zaun is off her rocker. Yes, Paris is beautiful but EVERYONE knows this is only happening to her because of you know who in her "lineage." That black girl was 100x better than Paris and Zaun knows it. This, really, is why i hate our celebrity culture. Commence down voting now! Hurrah!

Congrats to Paris and all the girls on the cheer squad being a former high school cheerleader myself. I applaud all the girls efforts. Now Paris knows what's like to be a typical teenager. To all the girls college first, that's my opinion, you can cheer there too
