DeSean Jackson's one of the top NFL players -- worth MILLIONS -- who can live anywhere in the world, and yet he chose to drop $1.65 million on a new crib ... IN THE VALLEY!!!!

Jackson -- who has a 5-year, $51-million contract with the Philadelphia Eagles -- purchased the 3,837-square-foot home in Tarzana, CA earlier this month .

Sources close to Jackson tell TMZ ... despite playing on the East Coast, Jackson's been renting a place in L.A. for years (he's from the area) ... and recently decided to upgrade to home-owner status.

As for the digs, it's worthy of the wide-receiver ... 4 bedrooms, 5 baths, hardwood floors, gourmet kitchen, guest house and giant backyard pool.

Perfect for those cool 100-degree Valley days. Enjoy the off-season, DeSean

$20.4 million contract, after Federal taxes, still a good deal including endorsements. Live it up and don't spend it all in one place. That is a nice home for the price and area.

That's a financially sound decision and a good way not to end up in a van on Crenshaw.

Wow, an professional athlete, who did not overspend on a "crib" (what a stupid word unless referring to where a baby sleeps). Good job.

God forbid a person buy a house they can actually afford, instead of just trying to keep up with the Joneses. Wow.

You can tell he has Mainline or Bucks County class taste. And has recieved finacial advice and used it wisely.

Funny how things come around. Tarzana was founded as a master planned community build on segregation. In the community by laws no one was allowed to purchase a home that wasn't white. The original purchase was made by the author of the novel series, Tarzan.

This house will end up in foreclosure in a couple of years no doubt, their hasn't been one football player that hasn't end up losing their home at one time or another, it part of the systems, nothing last for ever?
