DeSean Jackson mocks Eagles on TD celebration (Video)

DeSean Jackson mocksDeSean Jackson scored a big game-tying touchdown for the Washington Redskins against the Philadelphia Eagles on Sunday, and he celebrated by mocking his former team.

Jackson caught a bomb around the 25 or so, then ran backwards into the end zone. And what did he do when he got into the promised land? He flapped his arms to mock the “fly Eagles fly.”

Jackson’s touchdown went for 81 yards and gave him 5 catches for 117 yards in just three quarters. Not a bad day against his former team.

He also did some shoving with his old squad earlier in the game.

Chip Kelly had ‘zero’ issues with DeSean Jackson, cut him because of his size

DeSean-JacksonIt seems fairly obvious at this point that Chip Kelly and DeSean Jackson did not get along when the star wide receiver was still a member of the Philadelphia Eagles. One of the last reports we heard about Jackson’s time in Philly indicated that he threw temper tantrums and cussed out Kelly on several occasions. Kelly is still denying all of that.

In anticipation of the Washington Redskins visiting the Eagles on Sunday, Kelly was asked this week what type of concerns he had over Jackson’s character off the field.

“Zero,” the head coach responded, per Bob Brookover of the Philadelphia Inquirer.

While that answer should not surprise anyone, the reason Kelly gave for the Eagles releasing Jackson will probably make you laugh.

“Yeah, just trying to build the overall team in terms of what we’re looking for offensively and how we wanted to get bigger at the wideout spot and that’s what we did,” he said.

Riiiiight. Does Kelly think we have all forgotten that Jackson posted career highs across the board last season? In Kelly’s first year as the head coach in Philly, Jackson hauled in 82 passes for 1,332 yards and nine touchdowns. His physical makeup looked perfectly fine for what the Eagles were trying to accomplish, if you ask me.

We realize Kelly isn’t going to stir the pot by admitting he had problems with DeSean, but he could have hinted that Jackson’s release had to do with salary cap management or something. No one is going to buy the size excuse.

H/T Shutdown Corner

DeSean Jackson already thinks Redskins fans are more supportive than Eagles fans

DeSean-JacksonDeSean Jackson has been with the Washington Redskins for a little less than four months, and he already feels like he has an understanding of what the fans are like. During an interview with Chick Hernandez of CSN Washington on Monday, Jackson was quick to point out that Redskins fans are more supportive than Philadelphia Eagles fans.

“It is different,” he said, as transcribed by Dan Steinberg of DC Sports Bog. “You know, they’re very supportive here. They’re open. Being out on the field, I’ve been hearing certain things, but they’re good things. In Philly, sometimes things could have gotten a little negative. They booed their own players. But here, you don’t really get that. They’re supporting you, they’re out here.”

Jackson might want to wait until the season actually begins before he passes judgment. As Steinberg noted, Redskins fans booed their team plenty last season. Many of them even booed when Washington went into halftime of the season opener trailing 26-7 against the — wait for it — Eagles. Jackson must have been too busy winning to hear them.

To me, it sounds like Jackson is trying to butter up his new fanbase.

“I mean, just as many people as [were] here in the morning practice come to our walkthrough practices, so that shows you something,” he added. “To not really have a practice and people are still sitting here through a walkthrough, they really are big fans and they support us. Every time we come out here, guys are screaming things at me. And that’s just a great fan base to really have.”

Oh yes, Redskins fans certainly are diehard. But so are Eagles fans, and neither group will hesitate to boo its team if the product on the field stinks. Jackson can only hope he only experiences the booing in one city.

DeSean Jackson takes a random shot at LeBron James


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.
