Do You Agree With The Eagles About DeSean Jackson?

Former Philadelphia Eagles wide receiver DeSean Jackson was released. After six weeks or more of speculation, hearsay and anonymous quotes, the day finally arrived. I was convinced the rumors and stories were just that, nothing but rumors. I’ll be the first to admit I was wrong. I just couldn’t see any reason to get rid of him. In that article I discuss how unlikely it would be for the to cut him because of his personality. Especially with his level of production. But I will say it again, I was wrong, at least partially.

I am not trying to save face here but there appears to be more to the story than we know or ever will know for that matter. I think Philadelphia Eagles head coach Chip Kelly can handle the personalities of his players. I don’t think he shied away from players that were difficult to work with. Jackson’s alleged gang connections is an extraordinary story. At first I was sceptical but the more I think about it but the more details come out the more I wonder how much of it is true. I am not going to speculate on that for the moment.

In either case, I do think there is more to the story and in the coming days the truth may come out. But the fact remains that the Philadelphia Eagles no longer have the deep threat of Jackson running down-field. Let’s hope they have a plan to replace that threat.

Here is today’s poll question.

Do agree with the Eagles decision to cut DeSean Jackson?

    It’s completely WRONG to demonize a man’s image in the Public. Heresy is inadmissible in the realm of Justice and Social Law. To relieve yourself of a large contract that you never truly intended to deliver or pay is totally blasphemous and downright wicked. Especially if you corrupt the future of said subject. This Man has surpassed every expectation and has consistently been the Best Player on the team. There were No incidents of disruption legal or illegal, so why would there be some concocted accusation of some “risky-threatening behavior”?
    There is a clear Bias being expressed he. The message is of a pure Racial Element, that being said because of the FACTS… Riley Cooper is clearly a Man’ with a Troublesome and Racist personality Trait. He’s been documented expressing his Racist position yet he receives a New Contract of respect and prominence. Yes there is an INJUSTICE being played out here in clear view. But the Philadelphia Eagles will NEVER win a Super Bowl because of their Stupid, Ignorant and Foolish Activities of the Organization and Fans.
