Eagles Troubled By DeSean Jackson's Reputed Gang Connections 

Post#1 » by RealGM Wiretap » Fri Mar 28, 2014 4:41 pm

Sources say that the Philadelphia Eagles have begun looking into a trade of DeSean Jackson because of his off-field behavior.

Jackson has exhibited "a bad attitude, inconsistent work ethic, missed meetings and a lack of chemistry with Chip Kelly," according to sources.

When the Eagles examined why Jackson was missing meetings, they found his friends were having a more powerful influence in his life.

Jackson has reportedly continued to associate with reputed Los Angeles street gang members who have been connected to two homicides since 2010.

As a source within the Eagles organization, who requested anonymity, put it: "They are concerned about having him around the younger players."

"DeSean Jackson is not a gang member," said EAG Management CEO and founder Denise White, Jackson's agent. "He's far, far from it."
