Eagles release WR DeSean Jackson


The Philadelphia Eagles have decided to part ways with wide receiver DeSean Jackson. They’ve been trying to trade Jackson to no avail, and have ultimately decided to release him making the announcement on Twitter.

 

 

There were also reports that the Eagles were worried about Jackson’s gang connections in addition to his other off-field and attitude issues. Surely there will be a market for a receiver as talented as Jackson though.

The move isn’t without costs for the Eagles though.
