Quote:
After careful consideration this offseason, Eagles decide to part ways with DeSean Jackson. The team informed him of his release today.


Wow.

The release came shortly after this story detailing Jackson's gang connections was published on nj.com.

Quote:
Ever since New England Patriots tight end Aaron Hernandez was arrested and charged with first-degree murder last summer, NFL franchises have been reevaluating how closely they needed to watch their players away from the field. And what Eagles executives see in Jackson, a six-year veteran, is apparently a potential blight on the brand and a bad influence in the locker room.

I can already see DeSean zooming past Nate Allen into the endzone for wherever he ends up.

Now I just remembered my only jersey has 'Jackson 10' on the back.

Insult to injury.

There's obviously more to this than even we know.
They released him because obviously no team was interested.

His contract is a big reason for that but not a big enough reason for a team to neglect adding a playmaker of DeSean's caliber.

This appears eerily similar to the Hernandez situation.
I think legal issues will begin to leak out and there will be a giant red flag on DeSean.

It'll be interesting to see if a team takes a chance on him.

Worst move ever. Wow. This really makes me question our FO. And I couldn't have been more wrong about this situation. Very dissapointed.

My jerseys are:

Arrow My own named one, then I hurt my knee

Arrow Westbrook, then he got old and injured

Arrow Bradley, then he got injured then released

So I'm not having the greatest luck either!

Also

About the release, that must be what Kelly's call was about.

Looks like we might be drafting a receiver in the first round then.

Well I for one am now even more interested in how Cooper does this season.

You haveta think the offense takes a slight step back this season, even with Sproles.
