Recently it was decided by an arbitrator that new Washington Redskins wide receiver DeSean Jackson would have to pay former agent Drew Rosenhaus more than $500,000 in unpaid loans, although now not only is Jackson disputing the ruling, he’s alleging that Rosenhaus broke a major NFLPA rule back in 2009 to lure him to the agency.
From the report via TMZ:
In the docs, DeSean says he shouldn’t have to pay Drew a dime because a huge chunk of the cash was given to him to induce DeSean to use D.R. in his next contract negotiation.
Why is that a big deal? Because according to DeSean, it’s a huge violation of NFLPA rules — for which the NFLPA punishment is that DeSean wouldn’t have to repay a single cent.
Now for the cool part … part of the money he received from Drew came IN CASH — stuffed inside a Louis Vuitton bag he received just after midnight on Nov. 10, 2009.
People have alleged for years that Rosenhaus never really played by the rules, but with the scrutiny that constantly surrounds Jackson, who can anyone really believe in this matter?
Maybe this is an easy out for Jackson out of paying the money back that he was ruled to pay, a loophole someone found for him of sorts, but either way someone is going to pay up.
