The Philadelphia Eagles release of DeSean Jackson could be damning.
The only thing more shocking than the Philadelphia Eagles release of Pro Bowl wide receiver DeSean Jackson is the recklessness with which team officials handled the situation and the silence which remains.
An online publication reported of Jackson’s alleged ties with the Crips gang in Jackson’s native Los Angeles. Despite his denial of any association with the gang — which was backed by the LAPD — the seven-year veteran was unceremoniously released by an organization shaken up by what the New England Patriots endured with former tight end Aaron Hernandez.
