Desean Jackson’s Gang Ties May Have Factored In Release From Eagles
Eagles May Trade Jackson Over Alleged Gang Ties
By Brandon Simmons
According to Bleacher Report, The Philadelphia Eagles have decided to release Wide Receiver Desean Jackson. Since the offseason began, there have been rampant rumors of where Jackson would end up. In addition to those rumors there were also questions about his off-the-field behavior.
The Philadelphia Eagles may be getting rid of the star wide receiver, for more reasons than one might think. Despite having one of his best seasons last season – 82 catches for over 1,300 yards – Jackson has been said to allegedly have a gang affiliation, as well as a connection to a murder suspect.
It was reported by NJ.com that the team was worried about one of the rap artist associated with him Jackson, T-Ron, who is also signed to his label Jaccpot. T-Ron was arrested and put in jail for a year before being acquitted in a murder investigation. In that same regard, the label name, Jaccpot, supposedly has two “c”‘ ‘s because “ck” would stand for crip killer.
Jackson has been seen also throwing up the crip sign in various places. He reportedly displayed the sign on the field towards an opponent during a game and also spotted doing the same on social media websites. Jackson was also seen throwing the sign in music videos with rapper Snoop Dogg, one of the most publicly known crips there are.
Many people may cry fowl over the Eagles factoring in Jackson’s alleged gang ties into his release, but perhaps they probably have forgotten about Aaron Hernandez. It has been almost a year since the former New England Patriot tight end was arrested for his alleged involvement in multiple murders. During an investigation, it was discovered that Hernandez used to be involved in gang activity and there was even a picture of him taking a “selfie” with a gun.
There are media reports that say he was cutting meetings and displayed poor work ethic which lead to being cut. But an individual with the talent of Desean Jackson, especially with an offense such as Chip Kelly’s, it only makes sense that they factored in who he associated with. It all goes back to the cliché “Birds of a feather, flock together.” Well for Jackson’s sake he may need to learn to fly solo.
