Eagles fans burn DeSean Jackson jersey (Video)
Philadelphia Eagles fans have no love lost for DeSean Jackson.
CSN Mid-Atlantic caught on video a group of Eagles fans burning the jersey of Jackson at a tailgate prior to Saturday’s Philly-Washington game:
Jackson now plays for the rival Washington Redskins after they signed him following his release by Philly in 2014.
Jackson was a star player for the Eagles, scoring 39 touchdowns for them between rushing, receiving and special teams from 2008-2013. They reportedly released him in part because they were concerned he had gang ties.
Philly fans are so passionate that it would be expected to see them burn the jersey of a former player now playing for a rival, but they have even more reason to do so after Jackson insulted them last year.
