Hmmm. Desean gets cut for doing NOTHING, and he gets grilled. Trayvon got murdered by a KNOWN thug, and TRAYVON was put on trial as he was already dead. They made Zimmerman look like an honest night watchman. Since that trial, he's been pulling his pistol on whoever looks at him with the side-eye.

White Supremacy as slick as it can be.

Just asking.... would that have been the right thing to do?

I don't know, I don't know if cutting him then saying it was because of suspected gang affiliations is the right thing either.

If you trade him... are you going to tell the other team why you don't want him? I think it would be "passing the buck" & not the right thing to do.

I don't have a problem with them cutting him, they don't have to give the reasons they did though (& really I don't know if the Eagles said it was because of the gang stuff, or just "off-field" stuff). Let the other team make up their mind though.

Come on! Subtract the gang affiliation rumors and you still have poor punctuality to meetings, poor work ethic, poor influence on younger WRs and the definition of a locker room cancer. The Eagles were well within their right to cut him.

Cooper's a dumbass, but at least he was able to admit fault and apologize to his team and the entire Nation. Jackson just denies everything while demanding new contracts.

Take your race card and cram it where the sun don't shine

The guy was exceptionally well paid and was making noise about a new contract one year into his deal looking to be paid like CJ or AJ and he's not and never will be those guys. The other crud was just icing on a crap cake.

These ESPN analyst sound real dumb right now talking about @DeseanJackson10 They think they know what they're talking about but they don't.

@espn stop trying to discuss a conversation you know nothing about. U guys are assuming every single thing your talking about right now.

Im sorry but has @DeseanJackson10 ever been arrested? Suspended? DUI? Drugs? No so why are these dumb asses on @espn trying to make him seem

Like he's a horrible person. The NFL is so Contridictive I swear. Especially these punk ESPN Analyst.

and @RonJaworski_BFL shut the ****** up. You sound so dumb right now. and fake ass Teddy Bruschi for someone who use to play in the league

recently you sure are trying your hardest to act like you where Gods gift to football. I know almost everyone of your old teammates hated u

because you where that one guy that everyone had on there team that goes and snitches to the head coach about other players. Bottom line

I know @DeseanJackson10 very very very well. If the Eagles where so concerned about his "Gang Ties" they wouldnt had drafted him 6 years ago

Mark Dominik is the last person that should be talking about anyone with the way he handled players in @TBBuccaneers when he was the GM

The @Eagles gonna cut @DeseanJackson10 because they "Think" he might know gang members but they'll keep and resign a well known Racist?

I'm born and raised in South Central LA. I have uncles who are still gang bangin cousins who still gang bang. But what does that have to do

with someone playing football and ballin out for your team? I'm sorry but Every NFL team knows what there players are doing who there hangin

out with. In 6 years has he had 1 single incident? 1 single crime? The NFL is a bunch of BS Im so glad I'm done with that joke of a league

Mark my words there won't be an NFL in the next 20 years watch and see There so worried about who a player knows and a player dunking on the

goal post than actually worry about whats really important. And the funny thing about it Chip Kelly coached@t Oregon which recruited players

From Crenshaw HS. He knows for damn sure who's gang banging and who's not.

A lil bro @DeseanJackson10 keep your head up. Keep doing you don't let any of these fake no talent ass analyst on ESPN deter you from doing

what you do. Keep working hard like you do everyday and when you do get on a squad and play against the sack ass @Eagles burn they ass for

10 catches 150yds 3td's

sorry twitter for ranting but I just hate when these so called sports channels start talking about crap they have no idea about.

Ugh, please stop with your 90% exaggeration. It's not a word used in my house and I'm African American. My mother doesn't use it and so forth. You don't know enough African Americans to go spouting something that silly so just keep it to what you actually know. There are many African Americans who hate hearing it no matter what color you are.

I go to my son track meets and I have heard an asian kid use the word, latin and white. It has became more of a generation thing at this point, unfortunately. Probably doesn't belong in this part of the forum anyway.

This is basically my thought as well. More about money then add everything else. Find it a bit hard to believe that they wouldn't know about his ties to the Crips before they even drafted the guy. But you add up the grumbling about a contract he just recently signed, a heft cap hit, his practice/meeting habits and you see a reason to free some cap room and move on as an organization.

Hopefully it will have him look in the mirror as well and change some aspects of his life but I wouldn't hold my breath on it.

Apparently the Crips have released Desean Jackson.

http://www.sportspickle.com/2014/04/...s-organization

Quote:
The Crips street gang announced today they will be releasing DeSean Jackson, amidst rumors of possible ties with one of the most troubled and controversial franchises in the NFL, the Washington Redskins.

“We enjoyed our time with Desean. We had a lot of good years together,” said an anonymous Crips member. “But we don’t want his rumored association with such a terrible institution to sully our name. We’re a group that represents intimidation and toughness, and his ties with Washington contradict those values. So it was best to cut ties.”

The announcement came just days after being released from the 10-6 Philadelphia Eagles. Jackson will be joining a Washington Redskins team who finished the 2013 season with a 3-13 record.

“And don’t get me started on the name controversy,” the Crips member added. “While we may be known as a group that commits crimes such as larceny, drug trafficking and murder, we are NOT known as a group that supports racial stereotypes towards Native Americans. How the NFL hasn’t changed the team name or logo is something we here in the Crips are baffled by and discuss frequently.”

The release comes as a shock to many, as Jackson was only 27 years-old, arguably in the prime of his crime committing career.

“I’d like to emphasize this decision was not based on his gang related performance; he excelled in those regards,” stated another Crips member, referring to the wide receivers rumored connections with two murders. “This is STRICTLY about being affiliated with the Washington football team and avoiding such negative influence on our younger members.”

While it’s not known who the Crips will look to sign to replace Jackson, rumors are they’ve been in heavy contact with the Cincinnati Bengals and expect a signing in the near future.

Such similarity between 1914 and 2014.
Lol. He was being a white supremacist? Did he stupidly drop the n word on cam? Yes. Did he do anything to justify calling him a clans member? No. Stupid.

But what a number of sources close to and around the team, including current and former players, as well as additional sources within the Eagles revealed was that Jackson was not very well liked by his teammates, was blatantly insubordinate, with temper tantrums cussing out Kelly several times in front of the team, pushed the NFL rookie coach the way “a child would test boundaries,” and was more concerned with his rap label than he was about winning football games.

...

“The fact is, [Jackson] was a ‘me-guy’ with an attitude problem and [Maclin] is the complete opposite, a team guy, a great character guy you go to war with,” said one source. “Funny how [Jackson] has this anti-bully thing and he thought he could push [Kelly] around; he found out otherwise. His being cut had nothing to do with the gang stuff. The team knew it. Everyone knew he had ‘ties.’ Those were his guys. That’s okay. What put him out was his selfishness. He can try and spin it all he wants how he’s ‘a team player.’ He’s not. I’ll put it this way, when it came out last Friday that [Jackson] was released, more than a few guys were happy it happened. They said ‘good riddance.’ He had no real connection with anyone.

“Yes, you can say he was the type that could catch three TDs in a loss—everyone would be down, but you had the impression he was happy, because he got his. It was all about him. A lot of guys thought that way about him. [Kelly] came in here with a plan to get this thing right, and the one major [obstacle] standing in his way was [Jackson]. If we were going to move forward as a team, he had to go. Think about it—did anyone come right out and back him publicly? Not one.”

...

“You see little kids and how they cry and whine when they don’t get their way, that was D-Jax,” another source said. “I don’t think [Jackson] gave [Kelly] the respect he deserved. Kelly tried to reach [Jackson] plenty of times and [Jackson] tuned him out. Then you look at team functions, when everyone is out together at charity things or social stuff. He was the one missing. It was like he was in ‘D-Jax world’ and we just happened to be there.

...

Asked why the Eagles have been reluctant to go public with how difficult Jackson was to deal with, sources said Kelly likes to keep in-house dirt in-house.

“That’s [Kelly’s] way,” said one source. “It pisses me off that [Kelly] comes off looking like the bad guy here. It wasn’t just [Kelly] that wanted him gone. [Kelly] got a lot of feedback from guys that felt we were better off without [Jackson], too. [Kelly] is very much a player’s coach. His office is open to anyone. Now [Jackson] is the Redskins’ problem. We have something good going here and it’s going to get better without [Jackson]. He had to go.”
So, Jackson was just a selfish punk that nobody liked.
