Drew Rosenhaus says DeSean Jackson owes him $700,000
When the story came out on Sunday that Jackson and Rosenhaus were parting ways, there was speculation that the receiver wanted to join Jay-Z’s sports management company. That may still be the case, but it seems like the money issue between the two is the reason for the split.
According to Yahoo!’s Rand Getlin and Charles Robinson, Rosenhaus says Jackson took multiple loans from him from the time he was hired in November 2009 to March 2012. This information is consistent with what has been reported since 2011 concerning Jackson’s finances.
Jackson signed a five-year, $51 million contract last year, though all of the guaranteed money will be paid out after this season. He reportedly has already had some problems with new Eagles coach Chip Kelly and was demoted to second and third string at times during the team’s recent workouts.
