DeSean Jackson has to pay Drew Rosenhaus more than $500,000
Washington Redskins wide receiver DeSean Jackson was ordered to pay his former agent, Drew Rosenhaus, more than half a million dollars on Wednesday. Rosenhaus filed a grievance last year alleging that Jackson owed him $700,000 after the two parted ways.
A source told The Philadelphia Inquirer that Jackson, who ending up signing with Joel Segal after rumors that he would join Jay-Z’s Roc Nation Sports, will have to pay Rosenhaus $516,415 in loans and fees. Arbitrator Roger Kaplan announced that the ruling had gone in Rosenhaus’ favor on Tuesday.
Rosenhaus negotiated the five-year, $48 million contract Jackson signed with the Philadelphia Eagles in March 2012. A report last year said that Jackson took multiple loans from Rosenhaus since he hired him in November 2009.
