DeSean Jackson has gone to legal war with former agent Drew Rosenhaus, with both sides flinging accusations at each other. The court battle stems from Rosenhaus winning an arbitration battle with Jackson that will force the Redskins receiver to pay Rosenhaus back for $500,000 in loans.
With that kind of money at stake, it’s no surprise that DeSean is fighting the ruling. Here’s where it gets juicy. DeSean has filed suit against Rosenhaus claiming a lot of the alleged loans weren’t really loans, but were bribes given to Jackson to induce him to hire Rosenhaus.
In case you were wondering, no, agents are not allowed to bribe players in this way. The NFLPA will be very very unhappy with Drew Rosenhaus if Jackson’s allegations are true.
The best part of the Jackson court filing involves Rosenhaus’ alleged method of delivering the bribe and/or loan. According to DeSean, a large amount of cash was stuffed inside a Louis Vuitton bag and sent to him.
The bag, being a Louis Vuitton, was actually part of the alleged bribe. If cash isn’t enough to get through to a man’s heart, then swag should do the trick.
Yes, Drew Rosenhaus really is that much of a dirtbag. Sorry, alleged dirtbag. Let’s hope this gets dragged out for a long, long time.
