The Philadelphia Eagles made the playoffs this year and were unfortunately eliminated in the first round of the playoffs. After they were eliminated, wide receiver DeSean Jackson made a bit of a stir when he said he wanted a new contract. Currently, Jackson has three years left on a deal that will pay him more than $30 million.

Jackson spoke out with a statement released on his Instagram. When did a photosharing app become the choice for sharing statements?

“To clarify any info that yall [sic] people got twisted up,” Jackson said.  “I didn’t ask for a new contract . . . I’m blessed to be at the level where I feel my stats did the talking . . .  Injury free year & healthy and wish the season would have ended different with a ring . . . But I’m hopeful that will happen soon . . . Don’t listen to mixed words I didn’t say . . . Tired of dumb info being twisted to what I didn’t say word up!!”

“The question was brought to me I didn’t bring it up!!” Jackson said.  “Know ya info before speaking str8 like dat.”
