Desean Jackson is keeping busy lately with his party life. Jackson still tweets and takes Instagram photos since signing with the Washington Redskins (or whatever the team name will be in the future). You can change teams but you can’t change the man.
As reported by cbsports.com: “Report: DeSean Jackson still associates with gang
Back in March, an explosive report from NJ.com alleged that DeSean Jackson has gang connections. Hours after the report came out, Jackson was cut by the Eagles and he would later release a statement saying that he’s “never been part of any gang.”
In an interview with ESPN the Magazine this week, Jackson reiterated that he’s never been in a gang, but he admitted that he still associates with gang members.
From the article:
Here is what DeSean Jackson will say about the gang rumors: Does he know people in gangs? Yes. Does he associate with “certain people” from time to time? Yes. Is he in a gang himself? No, nor has he ever been.
Part of the NJ.com report revolved around a quote from a Los Angeles detective who said that Jackson flashed a gang sign during an Eagles game against the Redskins last year.
“Those were neighborhood Crip gang signs and he flashed them during a game. He may not be affiliated with the gang, but they don’t [ordinarily] take kindly to those not in the gang throwing up those gang signs,” the detective said.
And here is Jackson doing just that during the Redskins game. Maybe he will throw Philly a gang sign or two.
You can be the most talented player on the Eagles and still be replaced. If you’re not down with Chip Kelly and his system you will be replaced. It’s that simple. The Eagles need to be focused on getting to the playoffs and possibly a Super Bowl. This will be a problem for the Redskins. I’m going to predict that Jackson will only last one season with the Redskins.
