DeSean Jackson takes a random shot at LeBron James

DeSean-Jackson-shot-at-LeBron

DeSean Jackson is apparently not a big fan of LeBron James. For whatever reason, the Washington Redskins wide receiver posted the photo you see above on Instagram Wednesday morning. It features a photo of Michael Jordan and Kobe Bryant with the following caption.

“Just remember … We didn’t have to team up with 2 of the top 5 picks in our own draft class along with the greatest 3-point shooter ever to finally win rings.”

We could get into how Kobe played with Shaquille O’Neal for his first few championships and how Jordan was always surrounded with quality players like Scottie Pippen and Dennis Rodman, but do we even need to bother?

More importantly, what has Jackson ever won? He had a breakout season in 2013 and has a reputation for being a punk who slacks off when things don’t go his way. LeBron has won two championships, is going for a third and is still in the prime of his career. I’d bet my life savings he’ll accomplish more in a two-year span than Jackson will ever accomplish in his entire career.

Maybe DeSean should go hang with Paul George for a bit.

DeSean Jackson accuses Drew Rosenhaus of bribing him with Louis Vuitton bag of cash

DeSean JacksonDeSean Jackson and Drew Rosenhaus are engaged in a legal dispute over money the wide receiver allegedly owes his former agent, and Jackson has gotten dirty to avoid paying the money.

Jackson was ordered in April to pay Rosenhaus over $500,000 to settle a debt based on money he borrowed from the agent around the time of the NFL lockout and earlier. The two parted ways in 2013, with Jackson hiring Joel Segal as a replacement. Rosenhaus sued him to get his money back.

Rather than pay up as an arbitrator ordered, Jackson has brought out all the stops and is now accusing Rosenhaus of illegal behavior in order to avoid paying him the money.

According to TMZ Sports, Jackson filed paperwork accusing Rosenhaus of breaking NFLPA rules by giving him tons of cash and a Louis Vuitton bag in order to convince the wide receiver to sign with his agency in 2009 (some of the cash was delivered in the bag, Jackson says). Apparently the NFLPA punishment would mean Jackson would not have to repay (pay back?) Rosenhaus the money.

Rosenhaus has a roster full of clients that include some of the best athletes in professional sports. You really think he stocks up like that playing by the rules? If you read all the confessions of Josh Luchs, then you already know it’s just part of the business. Things apparently are no different for Rosenhaus.

DeSean Jackson loved his shoutout from Adrien Broner (Video)

Adrien Broner Jim Gray

Adrien Broner was quite the clown in his post-fight interview on Saturday night, which is nothing new.

In addition to talking about how he’s a “Can-Man” and how he beat the f— out of a Mexican, Broner told Showtime’s Jim Gray that he was thinking about the NFL during his fight. Seriously.

Broner said that because he was in Washington D.C. training, he thought about how the Redskins acquired DeSean Jackson. He said that made him want his hometown Bengals to get Michael Vick, who signed with the Jets.

D-Jack was watching the fight and posted video of Broner’s comments on Instagram, along with the caption: “Adrien Broner Is a fool !! This What he was thinkn During the fight !! LMAO !!”

Broner did drop an F-bomb here, so be warned:

RG3 was also watching the fight and tweeted the following:

Yeah, that’s about the only non-offensive thing Broner got right in his interview. Otherwise he was his usual nutty self.

DeSean Jackson hollers at Rihanna outside club (Video)


DeSean JacksonThis is video of what appears to be a drunk DeSean Jackson hollering at Rihanna outside of a club over the weekend with absolutely no shame. It’s brilliant.

TMZ grabbed the footage and says this took place outside Lure nightclub in Hollywood. They also say rapper The Game was acting as DeSean’s wingman on the operation. Chilling combination.

Seriously, does it get any better than watching DeSean try to put the moves on Rihanna, who’s in her car and therefore pretty inaccessible? And is there anything better than DeSean wearing a blue bandanna, wife beater and having his pants sagging so low that his whole butt was showing?

I think not.

Videos like this do not make Chantel Jeffries jealous, DeSean.

DeSean Jackson has to pay Drew Rosenhaus more than $500,000

Drew RosenhausWashington 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.

Kurt Coleman: DeSean Jackson was a ‘good guy’ in locker room

DeSean JacksonDeSean Jackson has been taking hits from nearly all angles, but at least one former teammate has come to his defense.

During an interview on SiriusXM NFL Radio Monday, former Eagles safety Kurt Coleman, who is now with the Minnesota Vikings, defended Jackson and described his former teammate as a “good guy” in the locker room.

“I’m very surprised and I think Philadelphia is going to miss him big time,” Coleman said of Jackson. “I find it troubling to hear some of the stories — and I don’t know who is really putting them out there. I thought DeSean was a good guy in the locker room. He was someone that I could talk to and could relate to.”

Coleman’s comments are particularly noteworthy because a CBS Philly report that said Jackson threw tantrums on coach Chip Kelly also quoted a source who pointed out that none of Jackson’s teammates came out to defend him. Now we have an official source on record defending Jackson.

“Did he at times kind of do his own thing? Yeah. But we kind of all do our own thing in our own way. But when it came game time, I would talk to him every game and I would ask him, ‘Is 10-mode on?’ And there was no question. He would give 100 percent. He would take those big hits for the team. And he was one of those guys that you wanted to play every single Sunday because the explosiveness, the X-factor that he brought to a team is [unmatched]. I think Philadelphia is going to miss him.”

“I appreciate him as a teammate and I can’t say anything bad about him,” said Coleman. “I think it’s unfortunate the rap that he got. He is a good person.”

Few teams wouldn’t miss Jackson’s playmaking ability, but it’s everything else about him that has been an issue. Also keep in mind that at least one current Eagle was happy with the decision to cut him, and that was Jason Kelce, who played on the same side of the ball. Maybe Coleman would feel differently if he were an offensive player dealing with Jackson more frequently.

DeSean Jackson misses Redskins’ team workouts while on vacation

DeSean-Jackson-vacation

DeSean Jackson has an opportunity for a fresh start with the Washington Redskins. Even if you don’t believe the reports about Jackson being linked to a gang or throwing temper tantrums and cussing out Chip Kelly, we can all agree his image is in need of repair. Showing up to work early would be a good way to kick things off, but Jackson is on vacation.

Because they have a new head coach, the Redskins were allowed to begin their official offseason workout program two weeks early. As Crossing Broad pointed out, Robert Griffin III and other key players have been present. Jackson has been on an island somewhere, which we know by looking at his Instagram page.
